a big fat disappointed MEH to this tea!
It was just not that great… bland and yet extremely fresh, but not delicate at all. As it cooled, it took on a somewhat plasticky taste. It did however have atleast a hint of sweetness to it.
I’ve never met a plain white tea (haha, get it? :P) that I disliked before, but I suppose there is a first time for everything. Also, I’d give it a second chance… since it may have been a bad batch.
That said, it was better than any tea I can get at my other office, but still not a good start to my morning!! —considering my high expectations for a white that is

The Disappointed Meh. The Meh that ambushes you out of nowhere, just when you thought you were having something off the scales awesome and find yourself knocked down instead, the promised awesomeness swiped out from under your nose. You can see it disappearing there in the distance, going “HAHAHAHA!!! Sucker!” as it vanishes.
The Disappointed Meh is characterised by sighing and slight grimacing as the meher desperately tries to salvage to situation.

If I ever get around to writing the Power of Meh, I’ll get you to write the intro Angrboda :)
I’m determined to have an meh-less tea sometime soon! though I’m craving a black and there is no milk in the house *sighs

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!
