Well, it’s still a bit hot, but it is pretty good so far. It is a little tart from the hibby, but I don’t think as bad as some…I seem to tolerate this as well as I tolerated the hibby in Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait, though I think this one is slightly more tart. I do absolutely love the smell of this one though, as it is so warming with the nuts and cinnamon, and the pooped rice add a more earthy note, though I do wish there was more of that in the blend. I only got about 10g of this because I was concerned about the hibiscus, but I think this might be one I will keep a small supply around for…or I might just get some Forever Nuts since it is similar, without the hibiscus. Dunno. I’m sort of wondering whether this one would be good as a latte (probably soy)…I’m not sure why.

Anyway, I will drink the rest and then go to bed…

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are.

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty, and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Uh, guess that’s it.
