wow thanks Azzrian! but wait, I was positive this is from Azzrian, it has your writing… and packaging style but it’s also in Amy’s cupboard and I just received a swap from both… and it was in your pile Azzrian. Oh jeeze, I am one confused lady haha. Somebody set me straight! I kept the packages in two different rooms so it’s impossible that they could have gotten mixed up. Right?! right???
Anyhow, on to the tea. Looooooove it!! Mmmmmm, this is really super tasty.
The flavour is rather unique, which is quite refreshing for a white. Reminds me of Ginger Sparkle from Tealish actually, with a kick of strawberry and something spicy. I can see how Kittena misinterpreted the lime as ginger.In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if there was ginger in here as well. Or perhaps that is the tequila? either way, it’s rather tasty. and complex! I LOVE complex teas and this one is highly so. White tea, lime, strawberry, tequila… all rolled into one! I think I can find the kiwi but there is so much going on that I can’t be sure.
Thanks Azzrian! or Amy! I am such a spaz…

Azzrian

LOL well if the writing is in scribble its from me :P
Brown or red sharpie marker. Doesn’t matter though – you liked it and that is what counts!

Indigobloom

I am pretty sure it was from you. I just didn’t see your review and then saw Amys and got paranoid!

TeaBrat

Not from this Amy!

Kittenna

If you enjoy this one this much, I might bring you a bit more from mine… it’s just not my favourite.

Azzrian

Yeah I didn’t care for this one too much but have yet to cold steep it so withheld rating it.

Kittenna

It’s better cold-steeped, IMO.

Indigobloom

Amy- phew, thanks!!
Kittena- I’ll try it iced next. If I remember lol. How much do you have? might be best to swap it out… I’ll never finish it all before it goes stale and that’s the stuff I have!
Azzrian- ah! makes sense now. I suspect it’d be great iced as well

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!
