When I had this tea two months ago, I threatened to pick all the sour non-tea bits from this tea and go from there. Well, I did. My husband (who is a fan of Theraflu… I’m just sayin’) said he liked the sour cherry aspect of the tea and would be happy to drink the non-tea bits part. So today, I made us tea – he got the sour bits, I got the tea (and the petals, if you want to know the truth). His tea was bright pink. My tea was soft yellow. I was too scared to taste his tea. I did taste mine and…

…it was okay. There’s a faint LifeSaver cherry flavor to it still but there’s not the icky tartness of sour like before. The white tea is a bit nectary but sadly almost totally covered up by the faint cherry taste – the tea tastes pretty delicate. That is, the white tea in this tea is delicate. The flavoring and thus the tea that is in my cup? Not so delicate. It’s not the bludgeoning sour sledgehammer it was before and easily gains ten to fifteen points from being brewed without the sour bits. But ultimately, it is just okay.

I’m with you. Tea that causes pain (as in making your eyes water and your tongue pucker) is no fun.

I like the idea of taking out the sour bits to make this tea more drinkable, maybe I should do the same! I still have enough tea to make one or two more cups of it…. ):

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
