drank Blueberry Black by Thé Kiosque
1341 tasting notes

My morning cuppa, likely the only tea I’ll have a chance to lap up today.
This time, I went for 3 min and I think a shorter 2 or 2.5 min would have been better. I’m getting some anise, like with the white version. Hmmm, I guess the flavoured Kiosque teas need less time in the oven.
So I took an inventory of my cupboard the other day and estimated how much of each one I have… and something really funny happened when I tallied it up in excel. It came out to 1234.5. Ha!! what are the chances. Seriously, I am not kidding. I swear!
Yes that is wayyyy to much so my next project is to go through them and weed out the ones I don’t need or the have had for too long already. Hoping to bring it below 1000, at the very least. Now that will take forever. Esp since I have more incoming. Oh my head…

holy crap woman….i’m overwhelmed with my 120 or so.

1234.5 different teas?! or servings of tea? Still, you have a lot of tea!

LiberTEAS

I probably should not attempt to tally up what I have, I think I would end up having a heart attack …

Indigobloom

Sil, yep! I’m not sure how it got quite so big when I’ve only ever made a few orders…
Janefan, just servings! many of them from swaps etc.
LiberTEAS, lol I almost did! but it was driving me nuts since I don’t have a tea pantry and it’s so awkward to organize them all

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!
