I had this earlier today when I felt like I was going to die from exhaustion, but Steepster just would not load the tasting note page.

Man, the period between 3-6pm was rough. I started getting that overly exhausted feeling and then slightly ill… not totally, because I wasn’t actually really sleep deprived, but a bit. I was not feeling a black tea because I felt a little over black tea-ed. But I desperately needed something that would give me some energy, so I grabbed this, which is a blend of maté and jasmine dragon pearls. In the past I’ve only steeped it 2 minutes but because the page wouldn’t load I didn’t realize that and I steeped it 3 instead. Fortunately there was no ill effects on this, it was nicely jasminey with that slight mintiness I get from green maté. Even the maté wasn’t bitter at all. I really do like this blend a lot, and it does give me a little energy boost. I’m thinking I should try more green maté blends in the future.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
