Ugh, exhausted from traveling. This morning the hot water dispenser in the (new) hotel was so forceful that it rent a hole in the sachet of this tea, letting loose the tea all through my travel mug. I ended up straining it out using the small tea basket on my travel mug and several cups from the hotel, but it was a messy process. Also I am going to run out of sachets before the end of my trip, which is sad (and poor planning on my part, obviously).

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.
