drank Tangerine by Basilur
2379 tasting notes

Happy, happy, joy, joy … there were two tins of this in my Mother’s Day bonanza, and loose leaf to boot! It’s the same blend as the gift-box tea bags I have enjoyed in the past: black tea, tangerine zest, and a little vanilla, but the black tea base is stronger and the zest a little zestier—no doubt due to better quality leaves. Pastry and citrus.

I opened the tin at “tea party” time at work and blethered in ecstasy because I had expected tea bags rather than leaves, then my work friend (derk, she’s my Kiki) brought me back to earth by whiffing it and chortling, “It smells like men’s cologne.” Hmph. All the more for me.

Each time I’ve tried to share tea with my coworker It’s been a similar response, but yay for more teas for you! XD

She’s one of my besties…we’ve been working together so long, we act like an old married couple and we’ve come a long way—she used to touch nothing but Lipton!
