I got this as a sample from Persimmon Tree.
This is the DRIEST tea I’ve ever had. My entire mouth feels parched, and I don’t like it. It’s so dry that my throat even hurts a little bit.

Flavor-wise, it doesn’t taste sweet to me at all. It tastes almost nutty, but in a very flat way, and almost salty/smoky. And I can detect a weird metallic taste if I let it sit on my tongue.

Not a fan.

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.
