Where have I been??! :o

Somewhere buried under a mountain of books and papers! But I have emerged for some time in the rest of the world.

I haven’t had much tea in my cupboard as of late. Relying mostly on my Butiki stash and some teas that my mother sent to me from Montana. This is one of them.

It would almost be a perfect tea if it weren’t for the chamomile. Its not strong, but when you don’t like something, it tends to stand out more. The dry leaf smells strong of spearmint and Anise. Its one of my family’s favorites though, that’s why they sent me some.

In other news: I made my first tea order since Butiki’s closing. It’s really easy to stay on a tea budget when you’re too busy to do anything but write papers :p

Also, so excited! I’m going to the tea dinner that is part of the Rocky Mountain Tea festival in July. \(^^)/

Flavors: Anise, Spearmint, Vanilla

My Rating System

100 My happiness absolutely depends on it

95 Will definitely repurchase

85: Might repurchase (teas that depend on my mood)

75 Won’t repurchase (but I would drink it again if offered).

65: meh

45: I reluctantly finished a cup.

15: Couldn’t finish a cup.

I simplified my ratings to single numbers rather than ranges because I can’t precisely compare so many teas with a system more detailed than this.

An unrated tea is most often one that I recognize as having significant notable quality, but that does not suit me personally. Sometimes, I leave teas unrated for other reasons, such as I am undecided or I brewed it wrong, etc.

Note: Boiling temp. barely reaches 200 where I am (and a few times it sticks at 195, I assume due to unexplainable shifts in altitude or the position of the moon. . .aliens?. . .).
