Lone teabag from the kitchen clean-out. Sipping now. There is no info on the envelope as to the contents in this bag, nor can I find any information about the tea online besides some fraud alerts about the company or something.

The bag smelled strongly of honey with some lemon. The brew, though, is very nettle-like, very herbal, a little earthy like yerba maté. It’s smooth and rather plain with citric lemon aftertaste in the back of the mouth and absolutely no honey flavor (thank glob) which only comes through in the aroma. Pretty boring but the fact that I can’t taste honey is a plus.

Flavors: Herbaceous, Pleasantly Sour

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 10 OZ / 295 ML

Always open to gifting or swapping teas. I do send international when feasible. Please follow and send a message if you see a tea in my notes or cupboard that piques your interest.

Tea became a hobby and my daily drink of choice some time late in the last decade. My introduction to loose leaf came in the form of dumpster-dived Wuyi oolong packets that somebody left upon moving out of an apartment building. From there, my palate expanded to teas from across China and the world. I used to focus more on taste and still harbor the habit, but after trying sheng puer, I tend to focus more on how a tea feels in my body. Does it complement my constitution? Does it change my mood or does it enhance my current mindstate? Flavored teas are not a favorite but I do drink them intermittently.

In terms of who I am, you could consider me a jill of all trades. Specialty is not my strength, as can be seen in the spread of my tea notes. I might have attention issues. One thing I will always love is riding a bicycle.
