drank Orange Starfruit by Stash Tea Company
119 tasting notes

Backlog 1/10 (including this countdown so you are all prepared for how much you will want to tear your hair out).

This one was sent to me by Michelle (I’m pretty sure…. If it’s not then I am sorry for forgetting you!). I had a couple of bagged teas over my hiatus because I didn’t have the energy to brew loose leaf. Stash is just an okay company IMO, and this was just an okay tea. It wasn’t very starfruity (for those unaware, a starfruit tastes kind of like an apple but a little sweeter with a unique tartness to it….. it’s hard to describe) and I mostly got really faint citrus-chamomile flavors, which is alright because I happen to like that pairing. This isn’t something I would ever buy but thank you Michelle for letting me try it!

I’m Ian and I’m a 15 year old student who lives in Vermont. I started (heavily) drinking tea in Late 2010 and have been obsessed ever since!

I tend to drink more black and herbal teas, though I do enjoy oolong, green, and white, and I’m exploring other facets of the tea world (I’m still trying with pu-erh!)

I tend to lean towards sweeter and fruity flavors in my teas, and I’m not a big fan of smoky flavored teas, or anything that’s VERY bold.

I also enjoy a cup of coffee every once and a while, though it does mess with my stomach sometimes so I don’t drink it as often as I drink tea.

In addition to tea drinking, I’m also really interested in:
Classical music (I’ve been playing clarinet for 5 years now and it’s my favorite thing to do), independent arts/music, education on environmental sustainability, reading, Fair Trade and safe-trade practices, Cognitive science, art history, and a lot more.

I’m open to swaps, but I don’t have a very wide collection. Regardless, if I review a tea and you would like a sample, feel free to message me and we can work something out! If you would like to just try something without a swap, feel free to ask too! I know that I personally don’t have a lot of teas to swap and if you’re in the same position as me just feel free to ask for a sample and I’ll send you some, no strings attached!

I run a blog on TeaTrade which you can find here: http://serendipitea.teatra.de/. The goal of my blog is to better connect tea with the arts and go beyond just the taste aspect of tea. Enjoy!
