Thank you to Teavivre for this sample tea!
As always the service from Teavivre is of the highest quality with the best packaging and kind notes from Angel!
Now and then I encounter a tea that is…“not my cup of tea” and there is no way to get around saying it. I can’t possibly love all tea’s… nobody can.
I discovered last year is that I can’t taste some green tea’s whatsoever! A few Butiki’s flavored green tea’s taste like water to me because I can’t taste the base tea. Silly taste buds!
The fault isn’t the tea or Teavivre or me, it’s what happens in human beings.
All that being said, I’ll tell you what the tea tasted like to me and you might chuckle (or not).
I’m a super-taster of sorts due to the health condition I have which gives me a stronger than average sense of taste and smell. I have to be careful not to wear perfumes when I drink tea. I tasted Golden Monkey on two occasions to make sure there wasn’t anything interfering with my senses.
What I tasted both times was like V8 Juice.
Primarily Celery leaf juice, brothy diluted tomato with mixed vegetables. Not the best tasting tea if you know what I mean, but an ok soup.
I know, I know… different than anyone else…yada yada.
I’m a black tea lover not a hater but this one hit the stranger than strange tea alarm in my mouth.
Sorry Angel, this one was a giggler. It happens.
