Home sick, so my tea stash is limited (most of my tea is at work). Fortunately my symptoms today are mainly sore throat and not much stuffiness, so I can taste fine.

I am not sure what the deal is with this tea. When I tasted it last year at the NY Coffee and Tea festival, I liked it a lot, enough to grab a whole large tin of sachets. But at home I just can’t get back that super creamy, almost caramely flavor, not to mention astringency from the bergamot. It always ends up kind of meh, which is why it is going to take me forever to drink it.

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.
