wow. Thanks for the sample Azzrian! this is a neat one :)
When the cup is hot, I get some smoke. but not like LS smoke, more like tobacco that’s smoldering. but no longer lit. or even unfired.
After that, I find a sort of sparkly mineral note, and then something fruity/corn like.
Second steeping was more of the same, only a touch lighter.
Be careful not to oversteep here, I almost did and it got a littl thick.

Now I am off to the store so I can exchange some boots. They gave me two left feet!! and I did check that they were both there before taking them to the cash… but they had trouble finding the price marker so it must have gotten mixed up. Oh well. It gave me something to chuckle about!
Just don’t ask me to dance, k? ;)

I’ve adjusted the rating upwards several times but for some reason it keeps sliding back???? how odd. Really!

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!
