Awww sipdown. This was really tasty, and I ended up drinking it cold brew mostly because I knew I would drink it regularly and use this fairly old tea up before it fades too much. Lovely black currant, and while sometimes violet can be overwhelming for me, this one is nice and well-balanced. A delicious fruity and floral iced tea.

I’m at 120 118 (eta: just discovered two teas which shouldn’t be in there!), which might be slightly cheating as I’m not counting teas that I have listed for sale. I’ve been hovering around 120 for a long time and I can never seem to hit 100… it’s like trying to lose those last 10 pounds! :P I want to make a smallish Dammann order soon, and I started thinking maybe I should wait until I hit 100 teas in my cupboard. This will be extra tough because I have almost no time to drink tea from now until August 22, so there’s that. But I guess maybe it can be a September purchase? We’ll see!

Where do you order from?

I’m going to be ordering direct from Dammann, they have a sliding scale of shipping. Right now my cart is at 12€ of shipping (~$16). Not great but not the worst.

I have the same problem. I can never get under 100 teas. Currently I’m at double that. LOL! It is a never ending struggle.

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.
89-86: 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
85-80: 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.
