This smelled awesome at the shop the other weekend, so we picked up 2 oz. I brewed up a pot this morning, and as I sipped, I thought… meh. I didn’t like it unless I sweetened it and even then not much. It wasn’t highly flavored enough for me.

I only finished half the pot, and as I was running out the door to go vote, I literally stuck the rest of the pot in the fridge for when I got home.

Now, as an iced tea – it’s pretty darned good. It’s almost better without sweetener iced, and has a lot more character.

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
