Happy New Year Steepster!

I got this yuzu citron and a cherry blossom by the same vendor (Tea Boutique) in San Francisco’s Japantown. I gave most of these to my BF who wants to drink more green tea but doesn’t want to be bothered with loose leaf.

I brought one of these teabags with me on my trip and thought I’d have it this morning. My first tea of 2015. This steeps up to be a light green color and is vaguely vegetal but the yuzu flavor is very strong. I don’t think I’ve ever had a fresh yuzu before, but the flavor of this reminds me of a lemon-y grapefruit. As such, I imagine this would be a very good cold brewed tea but I’m also enjoying it hot. I probably won’t buy this again since it comes in a paper teabag, but it’s fairly enjoyable on this chilly morning.

Flavors: Grapefruit, Lemon

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
