1329 tasting notes

what a cup of heaven!! oh my…
the first time I tried this tea, the David’s girl gave me an extra half spoonful. I love how they always heap it on to make it super tasty. Right away, when I smelled this tea, I knew it was going to be deeeelightful. (that was on my third try, the first two times they were out, and when I went back to purchase some as well!)
I was tempted to simply hold the cup in my hands and let the smell waft around me, bathing me in that amazing aroma. Banana. Nuts. Dates. They all come through in a blissful marriage of flavour that makes me weak at the knees.
However, I do have one complaint. I find it a tad weak, even after steeping for ten minutes. Squeezing the bag with tongs helped quite a bit though, but it must be done carefully, lest the bag rip and spill the precious contents. I Break the banana up into smaller pieces so that it doesn’t rip the bag when squished.
Too bad my tea is mostly gone now. Atleast it left it’s scent in the tin…

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…

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

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!

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!
