1285 tasting notes

Do. Not. Like.
All I can taste is some sort of artificial, biting, cloyingly sweet and very odd note. I think that may be the Senna leaf, as it’s the only ingredient I don’t know the taste of.
Senna, I believe, is dominating the entire cup. Nope. No blueberry, tea of any kind, or any other note is around. Ok well maybe a hint of blueberry but it’s really hard to find!
ETA: I gave the rest of my cuppa to Dad and he thought it was some sort of ginger cherry blend! and that it’s really weird.

I almost never like anything that is ‘blueberry flavored’.
The smell alone knocks me over. They are always so phony smelling. Real blueberries, which I love, never smell or taste like that.

Meanwhile, Senna is a bitter medicinal herb, notably known for its profound purging effect, if you know what I mean!
You might want to stay close to the restroom…

I know what you mean, I feel the same way about melon. I love blueberries and blueberry tea but can’t stand blueberry added foods (like yogurt or danishes). I think it’s a texture thing.

Luckily I didn’t drink more than a few sips. Wondering if I should warn Dad though… cuz he had some to! Eeep…

LOL! Might wanna mention it to him!
One of my sons used to beg me to buy this one blueberry cereal, he loved it so much. I couldn’t stand the smell of it, & I could smell it all the way up in my bedroom on the 3rd floor every time he opened the box. Plus everytime I bought it for him, my kitchen reeked of that god awful smell. :p

Haha I definitely will. Or maybe he’ll just blame takeout food… (naw I couldn’t justify not saying something!)

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!
