Hmm, this is tasty!! I’m not sure why the other reviews talk about hibiscus… I can barely taste it. Maybe it’s been reblended since?
I’m getting some deep berry notes, but I can’t quite separate them out into the different types. There’s also a vague sour note, probably the hibby, and a mallowy kind of sweetness that reminds me of mallow blossoms. I’ve been saying this alot lately but… YUM!! and that from me, about a “juice” tea :P
One day, if I ever actually purchase another sampler pack… I’ll try it iced.
This was my reward for getting vaccuum trigger happy. and well earned to! the place is pretty much dust-free now. Well my bedroom is anyhow. Now I’m just waiting for the sheets to be done in the wash so I can go to bed.
Doc said I can go to work tomorrow. In fact, he said I could have been there today and yesterday to. As long as I don’t share a smooch, pillow, or drink with anyone… they really aren’t at risk of catching what I have- Which I’m pretty thankful for because there is a lady at work with a serious medical condition, and she can’t get sick. I think the good doc actually got tired of reassuring me that she’d be fine because he ushered me outta the office :)
Going into work tomorrow should be interesting though, I have so very much to catch up on and we are getting ready for our Multicultural potluck on Friday. One of the few highlights of working in a corporate office… their efforts to make everyone feel welcome through food!! I hope there is some comfort food. After the week I’ve had, I need it.

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!
