Tea #20 from Another Traveling Tea Box

The package says Tin Roof Teas, but I’m pretty sure it is from TeaGschwendner, so I’m going to post my note here.

I’m not quite sure why I waited so long to try this tea, it should have been at the top of my list, but I somehow missed it was a floral tea when I was digging through the TTB. I’ve always been a fan of floral teas and I’m especially partial to rose and jasmine. There is a slightly fruity note to this tea, it tastes like mango, but it gives just a hint of sweetness that I think this tea needs to keep the florals from being overpowering.

This tea will not be continuing on.

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 0 sec

Oh, you love florals! This makes me so happy. Have you tried rose violet calendula? (have I asked you this before? sorry!)

Short Sorceress

I ordered some last time I placed an order, but I’m not allowed to open it yet. I want to finish off some of my older teas first. I can’t wait to try it.

It is the epitome of heaven in a cup. And that’s a promise. Good for you for being so disciplined!

Short Sorceress

My discipline has varying degrees of success, but I’ve managed to drink nearly everything in my cupboard that is older than three months. I’m getting to the point where I can start opening up my new teas and that one is going to be one of the first I open.

Bio

I am always interested in swapping so if you see anything in my cupboard that you want to try just send me a message. Please keep in mind that I order most of my teas in sample sizes and may not have a lot to swap. I’m also trying to keep my swaps limited to one a month so I don’t break the bank.

My favorite tea companies to order from are American Tea Room, Butiki, Della Terra, Rishi, TeaVivre, and Verdant, however I am constantly lured away from my favorites by a good sale.

Ingredients I love in tea
rose, peach, oolong, osmanthus, vanilla, marshmallow root and peppermint

Ingredients I dislike in tea:
spearmint, chocolate, orange, hibiscus, sage and for the most part lemon.

Ingredients I’m on the fence about:
Pu-erh

I am a firm believer that sage only belongs in my thanksgiving stuffing/dressing and absolutely not in my tea.

Allergies
Cinnamon, Chocolate, Burdock Root, and Goji Berries

Teawares:
FORLIFE Curve Teapot, 24oz
Adagio ingenuiTEA, 16oz
Adagio Iced ingenuiTEA, 32oz
Zojirushi Water Pot, 4L

Rating Guidelines:

100 – 90: Pantry essential and some of my all time favorites that I can’t live without.

89 – 80: You’ll have a pretty good chance of finding this is my pantry on a regular basis, but it isn’t the end of the world if I run out.

79 – 70: I might consider restocking this at some point if the price was right.

69 – 40: Not undrinkable, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again.

39 – 20: What in the world were they thinking? Probably still finished this just because I hate to waste anything.

19 – 0: Wow, that’s so terrible chances are pretty good I dumped it out and gave away the rest.

My current top five favorite teas:

China Black – Rishi Tea
Earl Grey Cream – Zen Tea
Lemoncello – American Tea Room
Nonpareil Anxi Qing Xiang TieGuanYin Oolong – TeaVivre
White Tea Rose Mélange – Rishi Tea
