Revisiting this tea tonight. It took me forever to decide what tea to drink, but I’m really glad I chose this one. I decided to steep it at a little lower of a temperature. The result: I’m getting much sweeter and more recognizable maple syrup notes. Really yummy!

Still not getting much in the way of cheesecake though. But I’m raising the rating from 76 to 84 nonetheless.

I’m liking this a lot. Too bad it’s over halfway gone. I’m going to miss this one too. Why do you do it to me 52teas?! Make me fall in love with a tea and then take it away forever. It’s cruel and unusual punishment!

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!

My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.

I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
