Sipdown, 195. Now I can add those other teas and only be at 200 lol. Thanks to yssah for a sample of this tea.

I guess this was another tea that I didn’t really look at the description of before I asked for a sample of it. I didn’t realize it was an herbal, and a medicinal one at that. I love guanabana fruit but this is the bark, twigs and leaves apparently. Annnd that’s what it smells like. Musty, kind of like old hay. And the flavor is odd because it tastes intensely dusty, but then underneath that it is sweet and kind of fruity like a soursop. But man, that dusty taste! It’s almost enough to make me sneeze.

I won’t rate this one because it is really outside of my usual, but it was interesting to try!

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.
