drank Rise N Shine by Teaopia
1308 tasting notes

Ugh! what a long day. Seriously, I am like a worn out mental rug!!
My work contract is ending soon so I’ve been making the rounds with job applications and staffing agency intros/interviews. So of course I needed a pick-me-up between meet and greets and I have been craving this lately.
So of course I swung by the store and they were super busy, being that most everything was 75% off and people were lining up like ants to carry off their treats. Well, you can guess what happened. Even though spending money is the last thing I should be doing this month, I ended up shelling out! how could I resist!!!
Look at what I got and tell me it wasn’t worth it. Just tell me!
1 cup of delicious, iced, Rise N Shine!
2 packages of tea filters (100 each)
1 Matcha set (whisk, stand, chawan etc)
50g of Amarretto Cherry Black Tea

All of that for $22.50 which includes 13% tax

Now… was that a good deal? you tell me. Have I tricked myself into thinking it was worth it?

I think that the Matcha set alone was probably worth this price, as I’ve seen sets like this elsewhere more pricy. In fact, I spent more on my new Chawan that is headed my way … but, then, mine is handmade that I’m buying direct from the artist, and I don’t mind paying a little more for that. But what I am trying to say is that this is a decent price for all that you’ve purchased! Absolutely!

Yup the matcha set alone was worth it! You got a deal!

lol whew thanks you two!! I hoped y’all would say that! I tried finding a pic online but couldn’t find one. Not sure it comes with a sieve though

I have checked twice now and I can’t find that set on their site! I looked under teaware. Where do you find it?

Sorry, my bad! I was looking at the wrong site! LOL!

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!
