This is a tisane that makes for an experience — a coming together of wonderful fragrance, pitch-perfect flavor note blending and a little positive energy lift. This is a comfort-food of tisanes. Smooth and interesting. I’m not a fan of mint, generally, but the combo with vanilla is great. Not getting any lavender. It’s like bumping into an old friend on the street, instant feel-goodness.

Second steep just barely worth it, and mostly mint.

Got this in a nice little swap with CK, happy to have the opportunity to try it, might make its way to an order. Meanwhile, it gave me a lift to keep searching online for a used car to replace the dead one in my driveway :(

Strong preference for exploring teas au naturel, and unflavored (except for unprocessed ingredients, e.g., cocoa shells/nibs, vanilla beans, flowers, fruits…). Favorites lean in the direction of rich caramelly, malty blacks, any puerh, fresh floral oolongs and whites that have some dimension.

I am always up for swaps.

Beyond the experience of tea, I’m interested in exploring its medicinal aspects. Other interests … yoga, creative veggie cooking, environmental issues, animal welfare, music/guitar, lefty politics, preventive health/nutrition, biking, swimming, foosball, photography.

Here’s how I rate ’em:

95+: euphoria-inducing, le petite mort
91-94: extraordinary, exhilarating
85-90: delicious
81-84: definitely enjoyable
75-80: good, solid stuff
65-74: I’ll drink it, but without enthusiasm
45-64: something redeeming about it, but not much
31-44: just barely drinkable
< 30: tidy stream into the spit bucket
