So, funny story.

Continuing on my What-Cha streak, I pulled this out to try today. I have never had a tea from The Azores before, and that intrigued me. The leaf had several different colors in it and looked really interesting. The scent was hearty black.

Much to my surprise, there was a really interesting top note to the tea. I am really bad at identifying those so I had my husband taste it and he thought it was berry. After a while I figured out that it is honey dew melon. And the way I know this is that yesterday I had Lupicia’s Golden Honey Dew and apparently didn’t rinse my steeper well enough, so that flavor was with this tea.

But you know what, I absolutely loved it, enough that if I could buy it, I would. In the meantime I will have this again next so I can tell you what the tea itself tastes like.

Mom of two practically grown girls, extremely happily married to a man who is amused by my obsession with tea, and company owner who works from home. Life is good.

Likes/dislikes: I love black teas, especially strong/malty ones. I am ok with flavored teas if the base is strong. I like some whites. I really don’t like any tea that tastes “green” – if I wanted to drink something that tastes like green beans, I would cook some green beans. I am not big on green teas or genmaichas. I am learning to like puerhs.

If we are trading, I have a STRONG aversion to coconut, banana and licorice. I love citrus, vanilla and spice. Not a fan of florals.
