Kiki:

What is that, like wintergreen or something? Yeah. No, it’s a mint. Huh, it’s peppermint. It’s got some kinda root in it. Maybe. It’s mellow, it’s very mellow. Does it have spearmint and peppermint? It’s like a linden or chamomile. burp Marigold. No. hahaha But it’s tasty, it’s not too bad. It’s at least a 7.5. Geran- no. Chrysanthemum. Is that it, the chrysanthemum? It tastes kinda soapy, the fragrance of soap, that must be lavender. That’s what it is.

Nope.

hahahaha I’d say a solid 7.5. Huh, soap. Are you sure it’s not rose or something?

Arby nailed this one for me, even down to the undertone of pottery: https://steepster.com/arbutus/posts/409973. I do get orange blossom. It’s pleasant and light, though rather perfumey.

Flavors: Astringent, Clay, Cut Grass, Floral, Jasmine, Mineral, Orange Blossom, Perfume, Spearmint

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.
