drank Good Night by Yerba Buena Tea Co.
1073 tasting notes

Finally sipped down an entire tin of this nighttime tisane. I bought it for an exorbitant price at the San Francisco Ferry Building. I wonder if the tenants of the stalls at the ferry building, Imperial Tea Court being one of them, will still be there after COVID. Nostalgia of my years in the city tonight.

Thick, floral, and gently herbaceous-sweet. A little tangy from the lemon balm? I don’t know what kava kava and skullcap taste like on their own. The lavender is stronger than the chamomile but the flavors are overall well balanced. Its rather generic ‘herbal tea’ taste has grown on me over the years.

Flavors: Earth, Floral, Hay, Herbaceous, Lavender, Oats, Sweet, Tangy, Thick

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.
