I tried this with a splash of rum today. We had no sugar so I had to add some honey instead… which cut into the buttery-ness. Not that I mind, I find something off-putting about butter in my tea… However the rum (purchased in Haiti, local stuff, should have been premium grade) was stronger than I expected, and oh so very bitter!!
Overall, not the best experience.
When the honey wasn’t sweetening it up, I tried some milk as well, and it helped some… but certainly not enough to warrant replacing the sample I got from DT.
Everyone else loves this tea… why am I the only one that doesn’t seem to enjoy it???

Nope! I thought it tasted good, but there was too much butter and I couldn’t handle actually drinking it. I passed it along to a friend who, of course, loves it.

oh and thankfully I only have a teeny sample. One more cup of buttery badness left :P

Try this one (my favorite of all time) with a very little amount of pure maple syrup, a little of “dulce de leche” Haagen Dazs ice cream and finally a very little amount of rum. All my friends loves it, hope you will try it one day!

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!
