Super nice tea tonight…two steeps of it. It was the thing I needed to have with my dinner tonight (KD, fancy, I know). The last of the pu erh plus mac n cheese was sooo heavy, so I made this up to help lighten everything up. It was a success! I’m curious to see if the flowery pineapple oolong is more pineapple-y than this.

nothing wrong with KD…. i had hot dogs =0)

Sil

The oolong is more pineapple-y than this one.

TheTeaFairy

Agreed with Sil, a lot more sweet pineapple in the other one! But I also love this one, though I can never really taste the cilantro, but I guess it brings the freshness in this tea.

I’d be interested in trying the flowery pineapple oolong then. More pineapple!

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.
