I really fuddled this one up.
My family is visiting for the weekend, so I made extra for my sister to try. She only drinks grocery store teas (Lipton, etc) so I wanted her to try something better. I don’t think she liked it too much and I’m pretty sure she dumped it down the sink. Oh well.
I poured my water in and planned to let it sit for 3-4 minutes. Of course I got sidetracked. I didn’t get back to it until 6 minutes later. Luckily, it still tasted fine. But I got sidetracked again! I didn’t get back to my poor tea for 4 hours! It was just sitting there on the counter, waiting.
In the end, it was great that I neglected it. I like this tea better cold. It has a much stronger presence this way. I’m quite pleased.

Bio

I don’t know a whole lot about tea, but want to explore it more and remember the journey!

I am a 30-something year old wife and stay-at-home-mother of one. When I have time to myself I enjoy tv, classical music, reading, knitting, and math puzzles. But mostly I spend my time playing play doh and dollhouse, coloring, and creating with Legos.

I’m trying to figure out the best system for rating each tea. Unfortunately it’s not easy to pick out an exact number on my iPad (which is what I use most frequently), so my ratings must be in a range.

0-20: This was terrible, my husband can drink the rest.
21-45: This tea was drinkable.
46-70: I enjoyed this but not enough to purchase again.
71-99: I enjoyed this and would buy it again.
100: One of my favorites; it will always be in my cupboard.
