I should probably try this tea again before I review it, but ah well.

I was not to impressed with the flavor combinations or the base tea chosen for this blend. I feel like if just one thing was swapped out, it would make for a better cup. I had not tried the Kenyan Purple Green tea before this, and uh… I may be more careful about it next time.

Here’s why:

I don’t know if it was because I hadn’t eaten since that afternoon before, or if I was just feeling under the weather, or what. But about an hour after I had drank the tea an began to start my day, I began to trip balls.
Now I have heard of being ‘high off tea’ before, and had felt the most minor of effects on certain puerhs and oolongs before. But nothing really as strong as that. i have had all of those flavorings in some way or another before, so I ruled that out. But the closest thing I could describe it to is a marijuana high, minus the munchies. It’s started by me getting a little dizzy. I realized I hadn’t eaten, so I grabbed a quick bite for breakfast. Nope. Still tripping. Hmm. No one else has experienced this while drinking this tea. What the hell?

So, long story short, I would put this up for auction on the swap thread, but I don’t know if I want members of the steepster community ousting me because I made them trip genitals off of this tea. heh.

I dream in tea.

My name is Maddi. I like to take boiling hot showers and meditate in my closet. I think and talk about tea so much that it has become a punchline of sorts with my family and coworkers. Besides my unhealthy obsession with the drink that gives me life, I do yoga frequently, I make green smoothies out of any vegetables and fruit in the nearest vicinity, I am obsessed with Korean Dramas, I run as a form of moving meditation, and play video games with my easygoing and forgiving boyfriend. I used to cook for a living, and I almost always eat at least one waffle a day.

Favorite types of teas:
Aged Oolongs hold my heart. Sneaking their way in are Korean Greens. Roasted oolongs and I are not on speaking terms as of late. Black teas of all types, but especially Fujian and some Yunnan are nice indulgences more often than not. I know and love Japanese greens more than any kind, while Chinese greens bore me. Certain White teas thrill me, but most have me changing the channel. I love using my Yerba Mate gourd, we have become steadfast amigos. Puerh and I are still getting to know each other, and while sheng is playing hard to get, shou is there to hold my hand when no one is looking. I sometimes make my own functional herbal blends, and if there is a hell, it is filled with Rooibos. Above all else, direct – trade tea is my favorite.

LEAST Favorite Flavors/Flavorings
Herbs, if they are out of place (I’m talking to you, thyme)
Strong Bergamot
Chocolate (added flavorings)
Cloves/strong cinnamon

MOST Adored Flavor Profiles
Majority of chai
Stone fruit/melon

First you heat the water.
Then you make the tea.
Then you drink it properly.
That is all you need to know.”
