After an outdoor concert, I am completely sunburnt. But right now I am freezing because we just discovered how to fix our thermostat and now I’m sunburnt and living in an icebox of 66 degrees. Time for some golden moon tea!

The color is very brown, and warm looking but there’s not a very distinct smell to it, though I think with all these fluctuating temperatures my sense of smell is not so good at the moment.

Well, it’s not that sweet and considering the name, I was definitely expecting a sweet tea. The flavoring tastes a bit weird. I’m not really tasting any honey … or pear. In fact, it’s almost really bitter and sour tasting. No matter how much I try to taste some flavor theres just none that really stand out to me. I’m thinking that the water wasn’t exactly boiling when I put it in but still, it shouldn’t make this much of a difference!

Ah! there it is. I think it was just a matter of it cooling off a little bit. I definitely got a taste of honey with some pear, but it still doesn’t taste sweet. I feel like I need to put some sugar in this tea or something! Not a bad tea, but every now and then I get this really weird metallic bitter ish taste that makes my teeth feel awful. It’s part yum, part yuck, and part indifferent.

Ugh! Be careful drinking hot tea- sunburn can really mess w/ your internal temp. I got extremely burnt one summer (like just before blistering, skin turned leathery like I had sclarederma (sp?), didn’t leave the house for 3 weeks except to go to church cuz it hurt to wear a bra, I couldn’t move cuz it hurt to push my chair) and I ended up w/ the shakes- so here I am sore and burnt to a crisp, but I had 3 blankets over me to stop the shivering. I suggest white tea next as it helps lower body temperature. Hot tea to warm you up from the house temp and white tea to cool your insides:)

Ouch that sounds awful! I’m not that badly sunburnt but I will remember that. I have to always wait for tea to cool off though before drinking it, i have a cat’s tounge. Thanks for the tip though, i’ll remember that. I didnt realize white tea helps lower body temperature. Good call since I drink lots of it normally ;)

Cofftea

Yep, that’s why it makes such a good iced tea:) I always take some w/ me when I go out for Mexican.

Bio

Daily tea drinker.

Whether it’s hot or cold outside, there is a cup of tea in my hands. I love all teas, but white and oolong are my favorites. I tend to find one tea and drink it every day until I run out (or get sick of it).

There’s not much variety in what I drink, so tasting notes are few and far inbetween. I try to log every tea I drink at least once… and if I spend to much time perusing the many teas all you lovely people drink I would surely go broke trying to drink them all.
