Next up, a stroll through the Tuileries. I wish!

This is such a unique tea. Some things you might expect to go together: pineapple and coconut (ok), cereals and chocolate (sure), a variety of florals (yeah [but tomato blossom?]), but then put all of them together on a green oolong? Weird. But it works. When you drink it, it’s impossible to really pinpoint what it tastes like. Nevertheless, I like it, and it’s my kind of tea.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

That is a bizarre combination and yet one that sounds very appealing to me too (except wtf tomato blossom).

I wonder if savory garden scents and flavors are going to be over-the-top trendy for a while. Lots of co-workers are into Scentsy stuff and they have a “Tomato Vine” … uh, not a candle, what do you call them? smelly thing, I guess … that was indeed, spot on for aroma.

OMGsrsly

That would be so weird. I suppose I’d be OK with my kitchen smelling like tomato vines, but my place is so tiny the whole apartment would smell like tomato vines!

And this tea sounds so interesting, but “cereals” means it’s a no for me. Darnit! :)

There’s an Australian gin that’s made with bush tomato. I want to put it in all the red snappers (aka bloody marys with gin instead of vodka) ever but that’s about it. :|

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.
