What kind of tea is this?

Black. A very good black!!

I imagine very good times whenever I see this tea. I hope they are lucky enough to get it back in stock as quick as they can. By then I should have some spendable cash to get a good tin of it!

I have a few swaps in progress, but once I am done with those I’ll send you some! PM me!

I have acquired quite a bit of Verdant’s teas and I am bit intimidated to review and sample them since the are so adamant with having the right equipment and specialty of their tea folks. It really is religious with Drucker. I am religious but cheapo on equipment.

Indigobloom

No judgement here Seule! I totally understand why you feel that way, I do to but time and money doesn’t always allow. As long as you enjoy it, that is what counts :)

I still haven’t given this a second shot… if I don’t like it the second time, I really ought to offload it on someone who does.

Must be a hate it or love it tea. Let me know if you decide to purge!

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!
