Sipdown, 167. The Traveling Tea Box (A group) is out for delivery today to me, so I need to make some room in my cupboard! Not to mention my swap from Shmiracles, Verdant Reserve Club May edition, and eventual order from Verdant that will get here sometime in May.

Sometimes you just want a tea that tastes like candy, and this is totally one of those teas. I mean, floral, yes, fruity, yes, but it reminds me so much of mango Hi Chews candy! Which is totally yum to me. Is it the most subtly-flavored, nuanced blend? Are the base teas very fine or even really present in the flavor? No, but I find it very tasty nonetheless. Don’t know if I’ll ever buy anymore, but I definitely enjoyed this.

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: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
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: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
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.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
