I am a sadkitty :( This is the 1st tea that I’ve tried from Verdant that I have not liked. I mean it’s a drinkable cup, but not terribly inspiring. I just tried a 2nd steep and it came out tasteless. I am sure that I’ve prepared this wrong, though. Pu’er is still a tea that is a very complex topic, and it maybe years if ever that I get it.

I suspect the reason why I generally prefer flavored teas is that I have trouble tasting subtleties in stuff, not just tea but in meats like steak. Generally speaking I could not tell you one type of steak from another without a label. Now with steak…that doesn’t bother me. When I eventually move into my own place, I doubt I’ll ever really eat steak unless I am visiting my Dad and step Mom or my Mom, because all of them love steak.

But with tea, I want to be able to enjoy subtle flavors, though not to the extent where I don’t like drinking flavored. It is possible that over time my palate will develop which would make it possible to fully enjoy this tea and others.

Not going to score this because I don’t think it would be fair just because I am inexperienced in Pu’er tea.

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:)
