drank Fireside S'mores Tea by Teaopia
1292 tasting notes

After my smorgasbord of new samples I wanted something familiar and comforting. This was it! especially after seeing all the other S’mores tea reviews out there.
It’s really grown on me the last while. Which is good because I have tons left. I don’t crave it often, but when I do, it really hits the spot.
I can see why some other people don’t like it. The white tea seems a little out of place, adding that crisp delicate note which comes off as extreme astringency sometimes. Lucky I happen to like that! Not astringency, just the white part.
Oh and yes, milk and sugar are mandatory here!!

I feel like this one should be tastier than the della terra one. Ill have to steal some more from you and give you some della terra to try heh

Indigobloom

For sure, add it to the list!
I haven’t tried the Della Terra one, it’d be neat to compare

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!
