First time I tried this, I loved it to pieces.

Then, a few weeks ago, I was in San Fran, so I got to try it live and in person at one of their locations. And surprisingly, it was not as good as I remember. But because I loved it so much before, I bought some to take home.

So, I’m trying it this morning. And it’s not quite living up to the hype again, but is better than it was at their location. I think I like it stronger than they tend to serve.

I’m not dropping the score yet, but it I’m not as thrilled with the next few cups, I will.

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
