Disclaimer: Please excuse me while I have a mini pity party!
I’m broken!!! :(
Or atleast my taste buds are. I thought it was related to something else, but my apparent lack of drive to consume bucket fulls of tea lately is caused by a health problem that I already knew about, but have been working out how to fix.
I have Dysgeusia, partial loss or alteration of taste sensors :(:(:(
Soooo… since I need to fix the problem anyhow, I’ve decided to make a concerted effort to stay away from caffeine. I mean, I claimed to be doing that before, but now… well I don’t really have a choice! my body has made it for me xsighsx
Chocolate, malty teas, roasty toasty teas, delicate teas… they’re all bland!! The horror!
I’ve been distraught over it all day.
I have a few pu-erh samples that I’ll try but once those are rated, I’m banned for six weeks! I’m not sure I can handle it :s
So it looks like I’ll be taking a bit of a break from this place. yeah, I’ll stop in and rate an herbal tea every now and then but it really isn’t the same!!
Oh well, my wallet could use a break anyhow.
So… this tea?
I added no sugar, and yet it was very flavourful. Woodsy almost but not in a biting sour way (how I sometimes find green rooibos). Otherwise, it didn’t make much of an impression on me but don’t let that stop you! I fully admit that I can’t taste much for the moment… so I haven’t got much else to say on the topic
It was interesting but I won’t be running out to buy more anytime soon. Too bad, I’m on the hunt for a tisane to love while I’m on break.
