Sipdown, 245 (haha, got some tea from swaps in the mail, so my stash has gone up again).

Having my tea tonight in my new “cardinal” mug (http://www.teavana.com/tea-products/tea-cups-mugs/infuser-mugs/p/cardinal-infuser-mug), although the birds on it are not cardinals (silly Teavana). I looked them up in my Birds of East Asia book and they are Taiwan Yuhinas! I feel like I should drink all of my Taiwanese teas out of it.

This one is pretty good, but I have to say, after having had a bunch of the non-decaf version recently, it doesn’t really stack up. It’s close, but no cigar. Still, pretty good on its own and a tasty evening tea.

Very pretty! Yes, the cardinal is my state bird, and that isn’t it! LOL!

Profile

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.
