I’m tackling my samples tonight, trying to write essays! Thank you to Kittenna for this lovely sample. It smells of blueberries with floral tones.
1st: 94C, 2.5 minutes:* I’m not tasting much. Hm.. I taste a faint white tea blueberriness, but nothing of what I was expecting. Maybe it’s due to the fact I just drank the legendary Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish from 52teas. I think I picked the wrong order. It’s good, just very light. I’ll try a longer steep next time.
For now, I will hold off rating.

Preparation

Bio

I am very excited to delve into as many different types of tea as possible… so this should be interesting. I am really looking forwards to tasting all the wide array of flavours that can come from pure tea leaves.

Currently, I am having a love affair with oolongs. Mostly green, though I am stretching out into more oxidized oolongs. Black teas are also in my love fest as they can be so surprising sometimes (I used to drink bagged red rose x.x)
I would really love to get to know green tea a lot more and white tea.. all tea to be honest. I want to know them all.

Tea rating system:

0-50: Do people actually enjoy this?
50-60: Slight improvement, not recommendable.
60-70: Alright, though easily forgettable.
70-80: Good flavour, though not a ‘go to’ tea.
80-90: Great tea – complex and memorable.
90-100: Extremely delicious and complex teas that leave me craving more.

On top of tea, I have a love for music. Generally all music, though I am partial to indie rock/folk/pop/electronic. Follow me if you also enjoy indie music and would like to trade some artists!

I’m always open to new tea and music suggestions. Happy tea drinking to you all.
