drank Earl of Anxi by Verdant Tea
2201 tasting notes

This morning I was feeling a little off, primarily because of some events that just have me really down. It’s one of those things where you start to feel physically bad because you feel emotionally bad. There’s nothing I can really do about it so hopefully I will start feeling better as time passes.

Anyway, I didn’t even really feel like having tea, but this one was next on my chronology and I thought the herby blend might settle my stomach a bit. It actually made me feel a lot better all around. I know a lot of people aren’t fans of the frankinsence in this blend but I enjoy it. This may make for another nice oolong to have when I’m not feeling so hot. Will have to keep that in mind.

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

This is another tea I’d like to distill as a perfume. :)

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.
