TTB Tea: 4

I’m doing a “grab and drink” method so I didn’t do any research as to the type of green tea used so it’s general steeping parameters: 1 bag (1.7g)/6oz water served clean and hot.

The liquor looks sooo strange… I mean “Take-me-to-the-ER-I-have-a-UTI” weird. Luckily it smells vegetal, slightly lemony, and a bit bitter.

The flavor is what I expected from the aroma. The lemony notes aren’t there in flavor… but there is something I can’t place… maybe it’s just the bitterness…

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 0 sec

This is really bad. The only thing I can think of is medicine…actually, no…meds would be a step up…gross

Proof every tongue is different- the other person to rate this gave it a 74. The difference made me laugh lol=D

LENA

oh wow…i rarely see you rate a tea so low.

Erin

there must be something wrong with me, because when somebody gives a tea a rating that is so drastically low, i automatically think, ‘wow! i need to try that!’

Cofftea

Erin, me too! But that’s because my taste buds are normally backward from everyone else.

Erin,
When I read
“there must be something wrong with me, because when somebody gives a tea a rating that is so drastically low, i automatically think, ‘wow! i need to try that!’”
I started to laugh and think maybe I should send her all the teas in my cupboard that I am not so fond of! It could be a win win situation. hehe

Erin, next time I get something that’s worth a drastically low rating I’ll send it your way….just for the entertainment factor.

Erin

My “condition” is just curiosity to the point of danger!

So I had an Orgo exam this morning. Consequently, I had a cup of my new favorite focus tea.
This is naturally sweeter than I expected of and green and a mate, its almost honeyed. Very mild and reasonable smooth if I had remembered to time it. It has very characteristic green qualities with the mate playing bass to it. I know when I run out I will definitely be getting a new box.
Also! It is bagged. I usually stick my nose up to such things, but it means I can put in my jeans pocket and “find” it latter when I’m in a dinning hall and in need of good tea. I found a thing of Earl Grey at lunch time in my pocket and my day was made.

Soothes and relaxes? Bull, as I drink this to remain highly motivated.
Still, I really like this tea. Cup 5 of the day, after a latte.
