Pleasantly surprised after my awful experience with the other bagged tea EnjoyingTea sent with my order. (Seriously, pass on their bagged oolong. Just say no.) This isn’t as good as the loose stuff (what is) but it’s decent and didn’t make me immediately dump the entire mug of tea down the drain, so it gets props for that.

I can actually taste the chrysanthemum. It’s not as fresh as the loose Chrysanthemum tea I have in the cupboard (see 2nd paren note in paragraph above) but it’s pretty decent if you don’t have the means to brew the loose stuff. I can see being offered a cup of this in a B-string Chinese restaurant and not thinking the quality was awful.

Bio

I’m a tea-aholic. I’ve always loved tea. It is soothing and warm and comforting. I always had it when we went out to eat as a child so my first association is with rich and delicious food.

As an adult, I’m learning to enjoy tea on its own merits, and bask in its subtleties and varieties. The ritual of making a cup of tea is instantly relaxing.

I prefer oolong and white teas, followed by greens, and then blacks. For the most part I do not like flavored or blended teas, and I never add sugar or cream to tea from the actual tea plant.

I’m slowly learning to appreciate rooibos blends, which I drink for its anti-inflammatory properties.
