Holy smokes this is incredible. Thanks SIL for the sample!!!
I can really taste the pancake in here. Just like an apple sauce pancake. I am highly impressed. Will def order some for myself at one point.

Shalom!

Go for it! I put it off for so long cuz I wasn’t sure what to expect. Now I regret waiting

This one is truly festive for me. I drink it as a nice comforting broth, it truly is a mix of sweet and savoury, isn,t it? And I was so sure to hate it, but it turned out to be one if my favourites from Butiki.

Indigobloom

I know right? I thought I’d hate it too but I ended up in love :P

I have been very hesitant to try this one, but maybe I should just say what the heck and try it already!

Depending on what you add to this tea a little sugar or pinch of salt you could have 2 versions of latkes. I like it salted

Indigobloom

Tigress, go for it! It’s worth it :)

Indigobloom

Boychick, ha! I hadn’t thought about that! Will have to try it salted when I finally order some

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!
