drank Plum Green Tea by Ten Ren
325 tasting notes

This is a sweet tea – a very sweet tea. The first few sips are almost overly sweet but once my taste buds got used to it, the flavor mellowed out and turns slightly salty (did you know plums are salted in Chinese culture?) so it tastes almost like the salted plums I had as a child – salty sweet.

Unfortunately, as a tea, it tastes weird. I’m not sure if I’ll buy this again.

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. For the most part, I don’t like straight black tea, but appreciate it as part of a blend or flavored. I’ve learned to love the world of flavored teas out there.

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

Love: Oolong, almond, coconut, peach
Hate: Ginger
