Wait, was this from Kristaleyn or Azzrian? or Bonnie? ahhhhhh, I’ve mixed up my packages!!!! SO sorry, I don’t know who to thank! well, thank you ALL then! :P

anyhow, this tea is lovely! also on the mild side, which I enjoy.
Just steeped, I got some distinct citrus notes, but as it cooled they were lost in the fruity void. However, when it had reached room temp, the tea became more grapefruit like with a hint of something else that I assume was the papaya.
This would be great iced I think!!
I didn’t resteep this but I suspect it’d be more of the same, only lighter… another reason why it will be in my tiny “to be iced” pile!
thanks again… to somebody out there!

Not me!

Azzrian

Me – I think – maybe

Kittenna

Probably me!! Mine all have the same writing in black marker in the upper left :) I haven’t tried this one yet myself; opened the packet just for you :P

(I actually had neglected to write down everything I sent you, but managed to write the whole list down from memory last night. Haha, go me!)

Bonnie: one down, two to go!
Azzrian: did you use black marker at all? or was it all red?
Kristaleyn: well it does have black marker in the top left… :)

Daniel Scott

LOL @ the comments. Funny enough when the receiver doesn’t remember who sent it, even better when senders aren’t sure if it was one they sent or not!

That must say something about how often you guys swap. :P

Bonnie

Mine all has masking tape with instructions on brewing and temp and the name and all that on it in ink…just like I talk…on and on and on….

Azzrian

Mine is scrawled in sharpie marker probably all red or brown. Its messy and looks like a two year old wrote it :)

Azzrian

Yeah Daniel lol we do trade often! Let me know if I have anything you would like to try!

Daniel Scott

I will keep it in mind, Azzrian! “Officially” I am trying to drink some up before I even acquire samples of more…that’s not going well. :P

Azzrian

LOL I know the feeling :)

Kittenna

Haha, so pretty sure this one’s from me :D Positive I included it for you. Glad you enjoyed!

Indigobloom

LOL I love coming home to an exploded wall of comments. I always find that so amusing!!
Okay, so now I know who came from what, more or less! whew!

Profile

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!
