I tried this one the day it came in — it was a minty pu-erh kinda day. And while objectively I can tell this is a good blend, and I enjoyed the pu-erh and the mint, and I love the look of the big black peppercorns… it has anise, and I just don’t do anise. (Ick. >.<) I gave the rest of the package to my boyfriend, who enjoys anise, and also swears he can barely taste it in this blend. Oh well. To each their own…

Bio

Hi! I’m a linguistics major at a certain infamous east coast tech school, I write, I rock climb, and I have a mild obsession with Diana Wynne Jones.

I’m also Russian, which means I’ve been drinking tea all my life — always loose leaf, and always black. Black teas are still my favorite, but of course I dabble in a bit of everything. I really like ceylon, I recently discovered puer, and I’m having a lot of fun exploring flavored black teas (and making silly fandom blends on adagio…).

My tea cabinet may or may not be accurate at the moment, as I am transitioning between locations…

Rating system (work in progress):
95 – Wow!
85 – My favorites. Cupboard staple material.
75 – Really good. Debating whether to keep it around…
65 – Quite pleasant, but not for me. I probably won’t (re)purchase.
55 – Just okay.
