Ermagherd, this tea is blue! Really, really blue! I’m drinking it from my TARDIS mug and it’s damned close in colour.

The dry leaf is really pretty and extremely fluffy. The directions say 2 heaping teaspoons per cup, which sounds like a lot of leaf, but really isn’t that much. There are whole blue and yellow flowers, pink rose petals, big strips of pale green pandan leaves and curls of lemongrass shavings. There’s supposed to be lavender in here too, but I don’t see or smell it.

An 8 minute steep yields a deep blue cup that quite mild tasting. The dominant notes are lemongrass, pandan and rose. It’s pretty herbal tasting, but not in that generic herbal health teas kind of way. The rose remains distinct and builds through the finish and the pandan kind of takes on a pastry-like note.

I don’t really know which ingredients in this are supposed to be energizing, and I don’t buy into the whole idea of detoxing, but this is tasty and pretty and that’s good enough for me.

I grew up drinking jasmine green tea with meals, but really fell in love with tea on a trip to Britain in elementary school. My first great love was Earl Grey, and I still adore it and all its variants.

I discovered the beauty of loose leaf tea much later, when, on impulse, I picked up a few teas that were on clearance at a home store. My introduction to loose leaf teas were Masala Chai and Provence Rooibos by the Metropolitan Tea Co and an unknown brand of kukicha and gyokuro (little did I know what a precious treasure I’d stumbled onto with that.)

At the time I was lucky to live in a place with multiple tea shops and several places to have afternoon tea, which is a delight I still miss.

Tea is part of my daily ritual and a nice, affordable way to appease the collector in me.

I enjoy distinctive whites, greens and oolongs, flavoured blacks, and herbals that are heavy on the citrus, lavender or mint.

Rating rubric, to give myself some consistency:
0-15 Yuck, not even drinkable.
16-30 Disappointing, not really inclined to give it a second try.
31-45 Disappointing, but maybe there’s potential? Worth one more try, prepped differently.
46-60 Mediocre, not terrible but not memorable.
61-75 Not bad. I’ll definitely finish what I have and might buy again.
76-90 Very enjoyable. Tasty, complex, it’ll keep me coming back.
91-100 BEST! I love everything about it and I will drink it forever.

Beyond tea, I’m a sex educator, polyamory activist, and radical queer. I love backwoods camping, abstract painting, baking & cooking, nail polish, cats, ceramic sculpture, and home nesting.
