After two debacles so close in a row (see my comments on CS’ Gingerbread Spice and Bigelow’s Constant Comment decaf), and my patience frayed, I brewed up a cup of this for my tea of the afternoon. And you know what? It tastes normal. Average. And that’s a blessing right now. I wanted to kiss this cup for its averageness instead of its awfulness. The tea doesn’t have a particularly distinct flavor. I might steep this a bit longer next time to draw out more flavor.

This tea is like one of your acquaintances that has a generic face. That person that always gets, “Hey, do I know you from somewhere?” I don’t think I’d be able to pick this tea out from the sea of mediocre teas, but right now, that’s fine.

Boiling 3 min, 15 sec

28-year-old NYC girl just starting out on her tea adventures! I used to hate tea. If you asked me a few years ago what I thought of tea, I’d tell you it tasted like hot, dirty dishwater. Not anymore! I acquired a taste for tea when I started drinking peppermint tea for my upset stomach problems. From there I graduated to teas like chamomile and Lipton. But Lipton wasn’t strong enough!

I’m getting the hang of this loose leaf thing. Black’s my default, but I’ve found that I really love teas that fall into every category. I’m a purist – I always drink my tea neat. I prefer unflavored tea over flavored tea, and really dislike anything flavored with artificial-tasting substances. I’ve grown up a bit in my tea drinking, and I find that novelty appeals to me less and less.

I also am the happy wife of the boy that created the tea randomizer, which can be found here: http://www.jaydeee.net/pickatea.php
