The best thing about the hotel I’m staying at is free made-to-order hot breakfasts. I like starting my day with fresh fried eggs! Also, this tea. I decided to make good use of the tiny cups here and steep a sachet of this one. These sachets are slightly smaller than really works in my travel mug… They do ok, but I have to steep them a while. But the 6oz cup, sure, it worked fine. Perhaps a bit strong (Dammann sachets are probably best for 8oz cups) but still smooth and flavorful. Wish I could easily find Dammann sachets in the states because its great to have a “fancy” tea to indulge in while traveling.

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
