WOW. okay so this sample is from ages ago. How did I miss it?!
Thanks Jenn for sending me some to try!!

So drinking this naked, all I get is plain ol’ green tea. Bummer!!!
okay, adding sugar. Hang on…
Hmmm, yes I think I taste some Cheesecake notes. Faint, but there is something there! Like the aftertaste of a mouthful of delicious cheesecake. Oh yes, this is not bad!
Now that I only have a few sips left, there is a hint of cherry coming out as well. Cherries jubilee. Not the tart kind… more like the preserves.
Verdict: While I am quite enjoying this tea, I don’t really like that I had to add more than a teaspoon of sugar to get my flavour notes. I’m fine with adding a little pinch of sweetener, but after that I find teas to be a bit cloying and I end up super thirsty afterwards.
This makes me a bit sad because I love cherries and anything cherry flavoured (except medicine!)
I think there is enough to try this iced. Perhaps that will rock my world?

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!
