Yummmm!
This was gifted to me by my Aunt, who returned home from Thailand not long ago. She fell in love with it, and now so have I!
For a few months now, I’ve been looking for a simple herbal tea that will not put me to sleep or provide any specific medicinal aid… and well it seems I’ve found it.
It’s almost sour, like a real lemon, and spicy, and sweet all at once! well, the spice comes out to play after a few sips, building one sip after another.
Also, it’s apparently amazing iced. Hmmmm, there were only 20 sachets of it in the box. What will I ever do when there’s no more…. well, it seems I have a new tea mission- to find a regular supply of lemongrass tea. And preferably not bagged like this one (tea snob that I am!)
Ohhh the things I could do if it were loose… mixing it with rooibos and chamomile, mint, and… ok I’m getting carried away here. I wonder if the bag will hold up for a third steep? Only one way to find out :)

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!

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!

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!
