Thanks to Sil for the sample!
Hmmm, I like this one. Kindof. Well, the first steep anyhow. True orange, nice and tart! with some cinnamon spice to balance it out. Yep, I could get used to this tea. As long as I don’t expect more than one cuppa, which is nice because I often feel guilty for not steeping again if I don’t get the chance.

It’s a weird tea…. Nt too sure how I feel about it yet…..it’s just..weird. But good..but weird…

I know what you mean! it’s just odd… but good!

The tiny version of that picture looks a bit like an orange fish…like a goldfish..and the blue could be water…and it’s a flattish tin…

Makes it look like a tin of fish flakes or something. LOL.

Yeah, I have nothing useful about the TEA to say. Just wanted to note that I was scrolling down, saw the little pic of the tea container and was like, “What is that, tuna?!”

Sil

Lmao. Too funny Daniel.

Indigobloom

ahaaha yes it does look like tuna doesn’t it! reminds me of Frank’s 52Teas April Fools joke where he posted a tuna flavoured tea…

Oh no, it reminds me when as a kid I decided to eat some fish food. It actually wasn’t that bad haha!

Indigobloom

LOL DaisyChubb! I once sneaked some wet cat food because my friend told me that’s what old ladies did and I didn’t believe her so she dared me…
Tasted kinda bland, but not as bad as I had expected!

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!
