Got this tea yesterday. Wanted to see how a Teavana store that I hadn’t been to, but had heard bad things about…(pushy sales associates.) But that went fine. I played the part of someone kind of clueless about tea, but had a list of what I wanted to get: More Zingiber Ginger Coconut, (Even though I had gotten more on monday, I just had a weird inclination to want to see my canister of Zingiber full. lol. I know, I’m weird.) 2 of the smallest canisters that the store has, and smell test a few others ones to pick at random, (namely the under $7 ones.) The random one turned out to be the Cocoa Praline Tart. And as always, I had to try it when I got home.
As mentioned before in my tastings notes, I like to be WOW!ed, unfortunately, it did not wow me. Though I am willing to concede that may have been because of the milk that I added. Today when I got up, I decided to pair it with my Zingiber. Meh. Even less inspiring. this time, did not add milk but I did forget to check the time, and didn’t really keep an eye on it. Hmm, I think I will try another cup, just by itself, see how that goes.

Currently 40 years old…

Been a tea lover for most of my life, though it’s only in the past? (5-8 years.) That I’ve been drinking loose leaf tea.

I like mostly blended teas in Black, White, and some Oolong. Sadly not much Green tea that I really like. And of course Herbal.

Rating Guide that I use, though I am not terribly consistent;)

100 Excellent
90-99 Very Good
70-89 Fair
50-69 The only teas that I am interested in in this rating are teas that I can buy locally, such as at a grocery store, fruit market, tea shop, etc. Or is fairly cheap/add on thru a website.
50 and Below No redeeming qualities whatsoever or is too much like a tea that I already have.

Some teas such as Constant Comment by Bigelow I still drink on occasion, it is one of my comfort teas from when I was growing up. Others are Perfect Peach, Mint Medley and Cozy Chamomile.

I am a bookworm, though I also enjoy art journaling/mixed media, making jewelry, spending waaaaaay to much time online…particularly bingeing various tv shows on Netflix and Hulu. Also various forums like this one (On and off.) Quora, Goodreads, Youtube and misc. others. If you see the nicknames Lynxiebrat/Lynxiegrl,Lynxiedove, Zaaron or Sarikcat, then drop me a message:)
