Another board game night tea!
I was assured this tea was different from the previous tea I had tried from Murchie’s, and it did taste much more distinctly floral/jasmine – though still grapey. It’s also a green/black tea hybrid though. I felt bad because my first impression when I saw that my host’s BF had purchased basically three nearly identical teas from Murchie’s was kind of a soft sort of judgement – and then I had that “Wow, fuck you Kelly!” moment where I realized I was being a total dick/snob, because I own 800+ teas, and let me tell you that within those teas is a lot of flavour overlap…
There is NOTHING wrong with liking a particular style of tea.
I really hate that gatekeeper/tea snob mentality that some people have and I really try to actively stay out of that mindset, but when I was getting into “serious tea” initially I internalized a lot of that mentality, and this was just a reminder for me that I still have work to do in unlearning it.
