Thank you… to whoever sent this to me! Was it* SimplyJen? or NinaVampi?* Hmmmm. I had them in nice n neat piles but they got mixed up when we cleaned out the cupboards a few months ago. oops :/
Anyhow, the tea…
This is interesting. Chocolate is the first note. Light and juicy, not heavy the way I pictured chocolate would be. Behind that is an equally light minty flavour. Somewhat distant compared to the chocolate but that part is nice. I wouldn’t want it overpowering the tea.
However, it did taste a bit plasticky, and I’m not sure why! I’ve seen that in green teas before.
The second steep was better than the first. Much more balanced with the tea flavour, however I found it rather scratchy as well.
Oh and I made a cup (of the first steep) for Dad and he hated it! I was shocked, as he has never, to my knowledge, poured a cup of anything, much less tea, down the drain. I mean, it wasn’t terrible. Really!! and the face he made… well, that was priceless. ha!
Nonetheless, it was a pleasant experience. I’d drink this one again!


OK so the second steep… I accidentally let the rest of my cup get cold and I think this would be great iced!! Upping the rating :)

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!

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!

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!

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!

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

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