drank Citrus Berry Sencha by Umami
24 tasting notes

Another of my favorites from Umami ! I drink this one as a pick me up when I need an instant inner smile. It has an ethereal brightness and floral air. The citrus from the yuzu is like sunshine. Not sure if I’m supposed to, but I smell some jasmine in this blend – a light wafting. The citrus gives it a tropical feel. I always drink this one plain – it needs no adjustments.

It’s kind of dreary here in RVA, and tonight I’m painting and listening to some of my favorite Canadian ladies (I live in the US now but I’m from Canada) Sarah Harmer, Jann Arden, Sarah Slean, Chantal Kreviazuk , Be Good Tanyas, Alanis Morisette, K.D. Lang, Sarah McLaughlan, Feist :) Getting my old Lilith Fair vibes on – yes, I went to Lilith Fair, and yes, I’ve always been an earth mama.

Flavors: Citrus, Floral, Jasmine, Tropical

I’m not really good at describing myself but I’ll try :) I’m 33, married to an awesome guy and mother to a rescue beagle. I’m trained in the teaching/ youth work vein and love to volunteer. I’m a nature lover and also love to garden – growing flowers, food and herbs organically. Nativescaping. I love to be creative and am always trying something new – right now I’m crocheting, cross-stitching, cutting bottles and turning them in to candles, watercolor painting and making fairy gardens. I’ve loved tea my whole life, and have always been a leaf over bean person.

Tea Likes : I am a big fan of fruit/vegetable herbal and medicinal tisanes. I actually make alot of medicinal tisanes from my garden. Love savory teas. I heart rooibos as well, it has such a beautiful well-rounded flavor that never becomes bitter and has an inherent sweetness – nothing need be added. I am also a massive spice fan – things can never be too spicy for me (and are often not enough so). I usually drink 4-6 cups of tea per day.I love unusual and earthy flavors. I will try anything, and don’t do sugar or dairy but sometimes will add unsweetened coconut, almond or cashew milk.

I only log a tea once, even if I drink it all the time.

Since I am reviewing two different kinds of tea on here, pleasure teas and medicinal teas, I will not be using a regular scale. A medicinal tea may not taste great but may work extremely well. I will do my best to convey my opinions of the teas I try for the benefit of those who are interested.

I am a big believer in snail mail and would be up for trades / sample sharing. If you see anything in my cupboard you would like to try, shoot me a message :)
