Conference tea – bergamot flavor is pretty nice, but thete is no discernable tea flavor underneath. Better tea than the awake though.

Flavors: Bergamot

I do not like this one. Woody, tannic, weird aftertaste – ashes? I think this was a sample. Sipdown.

Flavors: Ash, Tannic, Wood

Fruity, smooth, malty, little sweet. Vanilla? I’m not sure, I had to make-shift a Keurig cup to get my hot water. Different water than at home too.
If I could get it to taste like this all the time – I’d order more.

Flavors: Fruity, Malt, Smooth, Sweet, Vanilla


Ugh. Keurig. Sorry.

A fun tea – magically blue/green. I think I used most of this cold brewing.
Fruity, kind of funky aftertaste (bamboo). Refreshing, grassy.

I noticed as I drank a lot of it that the bamboo flavor kept building and I started to dislike it. I probably wouldn’t get this again.

I liked this one. Flavors are well done, not too overpowering. I wouldn’t mind getting this again.

Sipdown. I put off drinking this tea for a long time because it never looked appetizing. I’m not one for matcha. And matcha, black beans, and genmaicha to promote “healthy living” per the label sound like one of those things for you to do that you do because it’s healthy and not cause you like the taste.

Which is where I’m at with this tea. It’s cooked beans and rice that have been overdone with some added grass clippings thrown in. Yuck. But is gone now so yay!

Flavors: Beany, Grass, Rice

Work sipdown. I had a hard time getting the ratio right on this tea. Sometimes it was a lovely mint chocolate and sometimes it was very out of balance. Decent, probably pretty easy to replicate if I wanted. I still think I’d rather a good Yunnan black though.

Flavors: Chocolate, Mint

I found this in the back of my tea cabinet. Pretty sure I moved with this tea to my current house, so that makes it at least 6 years old, probably older than that. I tried it and surprisingly it doesn’t taste off after so long as it is a flavored tea.

Unintentionally aged flavored darjeeling tea is not that good. It’s drinkable, but pretty flat. There’s also kind of an mouth coating affect that appears after finishing it. I’m sure that’s due to the age of this tea and flavoring. Not a sip down yet, but I should finish this sometime in the next couple of weeks.

I started my tea journey with Stash/Celestial Seasonings tea bags years ago. All loose leaf, unless I’m sick.

I like black, oolong, white, and herbals. Green tea is hit or miss.

I play video games, read, and do pottery. My current favorite tea mug is one I threw and glazed.

I generally review teas twice – initial and final steeps.

I try to keep my cupboard to what I have available. Though I haven’t updated in a while.

85-100 are teas that I loved and want to keep in stock.
71-84 are teas that are good. I may or may not get them again. Source for daily drinkers/work teas.
60-70 are teas that I didn’t like. I’ll finish what I bought.
Anything less than 60…nope.
