It’s rare that I have black tea. I used to like it a lot more but tastes change. Sometimes I’m sad that I’m not that fond of black tea anymore. It seems that they come in a larger variety of flavors. Some days I try to convince my taste buds to like black tea again if only because I will have more options. I like options.

Well, today was one of those days. Failure. It was drinkable but I found little pleasure in it. It’s smooth and inoffensive but the flavor was one dimensional. and too…oxidized. let’s not mention the caffeine making me feel kind of yuck. The level of enjoyment doesn’t merit the the trouble I go through. I feel so depressing lately.

I’ll stick to herbals for the rest of the day. I’ll pluck some lemon balm from the garden! That should cheer me up. :D I bought one plant a couple years ago and now it’s popping up everywhere uninvited. Eating it is the only way. :)

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
