Liquid maple!! you were so right Sil! Thanks for the sample :)
I do love me some maple syrup and this hits the spot.
Definitely a love or hate it tea, and I love it! although one cup is more than enough, as I am starting to get that thick mouth coated feeling as if I downed a shot glass of maple. Ha!

I just had an idea. I bet you could infuse this into pancakes…. mmmmmmmmm

Indigobloom

Oh yes that would be spectacular! yummers :P

Sil

Kittenna

Too bad we took it all… :(

Indigobloom

Kittenna, I am owed a Della Terra sampler… this just might make it in :)
Sil, I say we have a tea cooking day next time! Thoughts?

Kittenna

You are owed?? (And I’m jumping in to say that I totally agree if I’m invited ;))

Indigobloom

A friend of mine said he would buy me two samplers for xmas but they were out of a few that I wanted to try… only now I’ve got some of those in samples…

Kittenna

Ohhhh, gotcha!

Sil

Yeah I’d be down for something like that heh.

Indigobloom

Right now my cupboard is at about 300, I need to get it below atleast 250 before making an order… but I’ll let you girls know! :D

Profile

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!
