drank Calm Chamomile by Tazo

Nope nope nope. Can’t get the thought of lightly minty, medicinal-tasting chamomile fruit punch out of my head. I mean, I’m drinking it but making a sour face.

During my Master’s year I drank Chamomile tea multiple times every day for several months. Those days are long gone :D

That’s too bad you don’t like this one! I don’t notice a fruit flavor at all – just chamomile and mint, which I feel go nicely together. Differing tastes, I guess!

Togo: so a PhD in theoretical physics is more chill than the Master’s?

AJRimmer: I’m guessing the hibiscus didn’t mix well with the chamomile on my tastebuds. It really did remind me of fruit punch. Glad you like it, though!

Togo

Oh definitely! The Master’s program I did was the most intense year of my life by far :D

That reminds me of how I like mint, and I like hibi, but I couldn’t stand the Bigelow Mint Medley that mixed mint with hibi. Something about those two flavors together on my palate just went “Nope.”

Glad to hear it’s gotten easier for you, Togo :)

Mastress Alita: I thought of your Mint Medley comment while drinking this.

i am tea as you are tea

Some current non-tea explorations include alto sax, powerlifting, rock climbing.

If we ever meet for tea, I will definitely smile.

Always up for a trade. I keep an updated cupboard. Check it out. Don’t be shy — message me if you want to try something! I send international :)

Most enjoyment:

Wuyi and Taiwanese oolong, GABA oolong, sheng and shou puerh, Yunnan and Wuyi blacks, Laoshan green. I also appreciate Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Darjeeling and Nepali teas, bagged tea and herbal teas/tisanes.

I take my teas without milks or sweeteners except sometimes chai and the rare London Fog or matcha latte. I generally steep a tea until it has no more to give.

I’ll try anything once because it helps me learn. Not opposed to well placed herbs, flowers, fruity bits and flavorings. Just nothing cloying especially banana, caramel, coconut, cinnamon or maple. And no added sugars, sweeteners, candy or chocolate.

Preference reference:

100-90: A tea I can lose myself into. Something about it makes me slow down and appreciate not only the tea but all of life or a moment in time. If it’s a bagged or herbal tea, it’s of standout quality in comparison to similar items.
89-80: Fits my profile well enough to buy again. Some could be daily drinker teas.
79-70: Not a preferred tea. I might buy more or try a different harvest. Would gladly have a cup if offered.
69-60: Not necessarily a bad tea but one that I won’t buy again. Would have a cup if offered.
59-1: Lacking several elements, strangely clunky, possess off flavors/aroma/texture or something about it makes me not want to finish.
Unrated: Haven’t made up my mind or some other reason. If it’s puerh, I likely think it needs more age.
