I’m don’t like this tea as much as before. It’s probably a different base year than the one I loved so because I don’t feel that the flavoring melds as well with this batch of tea. It’s honey creamy but the flavoring just tastes slightly off and I don’t like the base much. With a weird break between the initial flavor and the tea follow through. Or I don’t care for the flavoring….I don’t know. At 208F. Slightly better at cooler temperature, but I hope to polish it off soon.
I just know I’m disappointed with the tea. Another one where the remembered was better than the actual. And I’m dropping my rating a lot.

Flavors: Bitter, Cream, Honey

Bio

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

I like black, oolong, white, herbals, and raw/ripe pu’erh. I don’t drink green tea often.

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.

My cupboard is mostly up to date.

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.
