I probably shouldn’t rate this one just yet, seeing as I’m sick and all, and fairly certain I’m sure I am not getting the full taste and subtleties of this tea. I can perceive a nice bit of spice, and a smooth base, but that’s about it right now. Not to say it is bad, because it is good, but my buds are off from being sick, and I’m just not getting much from the tea now. But I have a whole ounce (yay!) to devour, and I can tell from what I can taste now with reduced taste buds that I will really like this one when I can taste it properly. :)

I am so excited to try this! I too however am fighting a cold… although some medicinal tea did help the other day. Hope you feel better soon!

I hope you two feel better soon! This tea sounds amazing btw so at least you have some delicious teas to keep you warm while you are not feeling great!

OMGsrsly

oooh, I’m jealous! :) Hopefully there’s some left when I manage to place another order.

I can try to save you some for a swap, though with any luck, it will become permanent instead of limited edition.

It’s fine! I can keep my fingers crossed. :)

Butiki Teas

It definitely won’t be a part of our permanent collection anytime soon but it might come back later.

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.
