Hoping today goes better than yesterday. Please no bad news (maybe even good news? but I’ll settle for a lack of bad news) and no computers suddenly dying and taking hours worth of work with it.

I’m not sure what happened with this one today but it has a hint of bitterness to it unfortunately. But it’s not too bad, and I still get the nice bergamot and caramel as well. I guess it’s one of those risky things with blends that have lower quality bases… they can be quite finicky!

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.
