drank Breakfast Blend by Lettieri
1342 tasting notes

Lettieri had a special on their teas! one cup for $2. I squealed when I saw this :P
It’s a blend of Ceylon and Darj, not sure what else but the girl mentioned “orange pekoe” as well (in quotes because that doesn’t mean much! lol)
Anyhow, it was pretty decent. Malty and just the right amount of muscatel. I’d buy it again! which is saying something, considering that I usually dislike blended black unflavoured teas!

Does anyone know the song Almost Lover by Fine Frenzy? it’s a sad song, but a good one. Except… well, for some reason lately it reminds me of that tea you almost fall in love with and just can’t for some odd reason. Well, that is this tea for me. I like it. I want to loooove it, and it fits the ideal of what I thought my tea palate desires… bah! it just needs a little tweaking. Too bad I can’t buy any to take home ;P

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!
