I’ll start off by saying I don’t mind chamomile, and sometimes I rather enjoy it. So, I open the package and smell chamomile, not bad. I can see other things floating around in there too. I steep some up and smell…you guessed it, Chamomile. I take a sip and I taste chamomile with some citrus and mint, not too bad. I swallow, and there was the mistake. I am immediately kicked in the face of the licorice aftertaste. Holy cow is that stuff sweet and just ick. I think, well maybe it’ll grow on me. So, I take a few more sips and in turn am kicked in the back of the throat by this licorice. It just kind of hangs out, sticking to the back of my throat. This aftertaste destroyed this cup. Because I apparently do not enjoy licorice in my tea (first time trying it in tea) I will not rate this, it would just be too low and bring the ratings down. Good note though is that my mom’s birthday is coming up and I did tell her I was going to get her some tea! I already did, but a little more won’t hurt :)

I’m glad I’m not your mom if you’re giving her this! Get a card! ;)

I found that she enjoys some teas that I don’t and even if she doesn’t like this one I can find someone else who will like it (hopefully)! But I did get her an Assam, a Nilgiri, and a Wuyi Oolong and a Penn State hoodie that she has been bugging me for!

Bonnie

Ah. the hoodie! At that, I opt for pizza and beer forget the tea! (Kidder)

Profile

Bio

I’m an avid tea drinker, it’s what I drink all day and why I’m here. I don’t sweeten my teas except for the occasional iced tea or cold-brewed tea. I typically brew my teas with a brew basket in a 12 oz cup. If I brew another way I will always note it.

Dislikes: black teas, milk flavored oolongs, hibiscus, red rooibos, licorice, dessert teas, mate, guayusa.

Loves: straight teas, especially Chinese green teas, sencha, jasmine, dan congs, mint, coconut.

My ratings are based mostly on the smiley faces. If a tea is of good quality but not to my taste preference I try not to rate it because I think that is unfair.

I drink a lot of the same teas and will not record every time I drink them. I log them the first time I try them and then again if I did something different and/or got different results.

I also try to keep my cupboard updated to what I actually have for those that wish to swap, although some of them are merely samples.
