Bulk Barn. Is a wonderful terrible place that makes me want to buy ALL THE THINGS. Wonderful because I find gems like this beauty and terrible because I did not need to be spending more money on tea, much less anything else! I have a bunch coming in the mail and too much in my cupboard as is. Sighs. But how could I resist?!
Technically, I think I get a pass on this one. As it was one of the only teas on my “may be purchased while on tea buying hiatus cuz it’s so damned good and hard to find!”
Of course I gave away a third of the package in exchange for some Candy Cane Lane! a tea I’ve yet to try… and always wanted to :P
I’m kinda glad my friend dragged me to the BB. What a perfect reward for getting through my exam! (sensory development. best class ever)

Oh and my cup? Deeeeeevine. See previous note.

I love how you can find a lot of hard to find things, especially tea, in bulk barn. It surprises me that they stock those products when no one else does. I love going into that store.

Word, Bulk Barn is DANGEROUS.

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!
