Ok so today is turning out to be a VERY good tea day. Wowsa!!
I chose this, reaching into the sample bag hoping for a black and this was what I pulled out… which left me a tad disappointed given that I generally dislike blueberry sweets. Thus, when I brewed this up I expected a decent tea, yet yearned for something that would hit that dessert black tea craving, but had little hope that it would be just what I wanted. Well, surprise!! It’s exceeded my expectations by a lightyear!!!
It really tastes like blueberries, and cheese! without any of the nasty texture I dislike (duh). I added some milk n sugar, which brings it way over the top to a place I can only describe as paradise. That means I’ve been to tea paradise and heaven in one day >sighs<
Big BIG BIG love to Jenn for sending me this sample. I can’t wait for my second steep! and then it’s off to meet a fellow steepsterite. Again, what an amazing tea day… I credit it partly to all the positive tea vibes I got from y’all yesterday so muchos gracias for those as well!

I know, it’s a great feeling! I’m hoping tomorrow will be decent to, given the sad lack of hot water. Two more days at that workplace and then I am outta there!!

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!
