Farewell to the last of my sample tin of this. I could’ve sworn that I had written a tasting note for it, and now I can’t seem to find it…strange. A tasting note I spotted by someone else mentioned sweet grains and artichoke, and that seems to sum it up pretty adequately.

Don’t think I’ll be buying another tin of it. It’s not bad, really it isn’t, but I’d take a cup of Downy Sprout over this any day. And will be, because I put my new Samovar order in, finally. Doing so knocked off a healthy portion of my shopping list. Whee!

Ohhh, I dunno. I like tea but I’m kind of a tea newbie. At this point I can say with authority that I may never be anything else, no matter how many teas I try…there is always something new out there.

I write a lot.

I also play way too many video games.


Ratings! (Bout time, wot?) This is a new arrangement, so…subject to change!

1-10: Not potable. First-sip disasters.

11-30: Intensely unpleasant…won’t catch me finishing the cup.

31-50: I really don’t like it…but maybe somebody else out there would.

51-70: Drinkable, but probably not the first thing I’m going to reach for.

71-90: Pretty good tea, and stuff that there’s a good chance I’ll have on-hand. Will do in a pinch at the low end, all the way up to regular visitors to my infuser on the high end.

91-100: Teas I really do not want to be without.
