I’m so glad I had a chance to try this, as I’ve been eying it up for some time now. Good thing it was just a sample though, as I couldn’t bear to finish the cup… I’m sorry Lemon Meringue Rooibos, you smell so very yummy! but ya do bad things to me :(

Jessie

Oh no! What did it do to you?

Bonnie

Did it make you a Bad Girl!

Indigobloom

Just made me slightly nauseous. Had trouble swallowing it.
It made me feel guilty for not liking it!! does that count lol

Bonnie

OOOOOOOH Guilt! You might have to drink strong oversteeped Carrot Cake before bed…oh yeh aren’t you the only one who likes Carrot Cake! Not Fair!

Jessie

Yikes! That’s too bad. Definitely good that you were able to try it before buying.

Indigobloom

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
