Recently I was just looking for a place to buy a can of plain roobois so I could try making my own blends. I stumbled across the Persimmon Tree and discovered they offer FREE shipping via first class mail, even on a little dinky order like mine. Yay! So I discovered I could also get these $1 sample packs which are about enough to make 2-3 cups of tea.

I apologize for the low res picture but I could not get a better one from their website.

This tea is weird, man… WEIRD! I do like lemongrass, ginger and verbena but mixed together with the honeybush, which is kind of earthy and sweet this is a bit of a disaster, IMO. I will certainly finish the sample but this is not going on the repeat purchase list. Ew. the other ones I got do look better! =)

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

49 and below Nasty
