I have no idea why I ordered this. At all. That would also be why I’ve been holding onto it since May.

Nothing about the description of it even vaguely sounds good to me so I REALLY have no idea why I bought it.

I gave it a chance anyway because Upton’s BOP Margaret’s Hope is pretty good. But that’s a broken leaf…according to wikipedia, this is from the lowest level of the fanning grade.

Makes me sound mean and snobby but…tastes like it! I steeped it just for 2 minutes and it tastes like nutmeg mixed with malty dirt. Not a fan.

Momo, you’re not being snobby, you’re just a good tea connoisseur!

While I’d argue that wikipedia is not always correct, and also that a small CTC or broken leaf does not always indicate that it is a low grade of tea (I’ve had some pretty remarkable small cut or broken leaf teas), if you don’t like what you’re tasting, you don’t like it, and there’s no arguing that. It doesn’t make you a snob. :)
