1296 tasting notes

Hmmm, yes this was great!
Not the tea I had intended to order, in fact I had planned to make one from my own stock, but I was passing by while running an errand and figured I had to get a cup! I’m stressed out from studying for an exam I have coming up and that usually leads to me making poor financial decisions (not that I’m making excuses! just sayin)
Oh yah the tea…
At first sip I couldn’t taste the chocolate much, so I added a swirl of agave and it brought up the notes quite nicely. I don’t like that the agave was needed but atleast I’ve found a chocolate tea I enjoy! most of them either have mint or taste like a chemical brew. Somehow, its almost creamy. Maybe from the chocolate? Funny, I’ve never seen that before. Most of the time, any choco chips don’t melt, or so I’ve noticed. The second infusion was less creamy but had less agave and was just overall lighter. Still great!
In both infusions, the roses, chocolate and strawberries blend well together. It reminds me of my Rose Congou Emperor, only sans the cocoa. I wonder, what would happen if I added a few chips to my congou??? :P
Too bad they are so similar… I can’t justify buying any of this one til my congou is gone.

I have to admit, I never thought I would appreciate a tea with rose petals in it, but this one is delicious!

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!
