1300 tasting notes

Backlog from yesterday. The servers were running so slowly that I wasn’t able to upload the description to the database.
Anyhow, I love this tea. I have so much of it in the big ol’ tin it comes in, that I’m sure it’ll go stale long before I finish it up but oh well, it works for now :)
This time around, I added loads of honey for my poor throat. At work, it’s hard to avoid talking, and then I had to give a 30 min training! Oi. That was fun!! ha.
and then… one of my besties in the whole wide world had a bday party, to which she begged me to go to… so of course I ended up in a crowded lounge where one must yell to be heard(she didn’t care that I was sick, in fact I tried to get out of it with that as a reason). What a long night. Ahhh! I was soooo glad to find my bed last night upon arriving home.
With all the honey I added, it was hard to taste much beyond licorice and honey, but that’s ok with me. It did the job! btw, I had this between training staff on our web portal, and going out for the night.
Today, vocal rest and lots of tea. mmmmm.

OMG, someone reviewed this one! They still have that B2G1 sale on, and since I just had a cold, I was wishing so much for something that would help my throat, and I Googled and Googled for reviews of this but found nothing!

What does it taste like?

Do you have any of the other Wellness tins?

Ahhh but that’s a complicated question. When I’m sick all I can really taste is the sweet licorice and maybe a bit of citrus…
I tried it when I was unsick once, and the cinnamon really came out. It has a sweet earthy taste to it, and the sweetness goes pretty deep with the other aspects sortof sitting on top. I think the ginger gave it a bit of zing as well.
I could only afford one out of the different options so I chose this one since it (based on ingredients) seemed to apply in most flu situations, compared to the others that is :)

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…

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

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!
