and as I am thinking about it, I don’t like darjeeling, that could also be it.

@BrookeM – I feel similar to you, perhaps, about Darjeeling teas. They tend to have kind of sharp, rough edges, and make me pucker up, which I don’t like. It’s that — the astringency — that I dislike generally. And most bitterness.

Bio

I have just fallen in love with drinking tea. I just think it is so very precious and I am having such fun exploring all the different wonderful possibilities. I am a psychotherapist, dancer, meditator, that has of late been experiencing tons of pleasure in nature; tea drinking included. I am grateful for this precious Earth of ours, and tea is just the most perfect of her treasures. I am also grateful for the people who have lovingly cultivated this treasure so we may enjoy it. I also love this site.
