Apparently it was Iced Tea Day two days ago (June 10). I didn’t have any iced tea that day, but I blame it on the weather wildly fluctuating between regular hot, California summer day and weird muggy, gloomy colder days. Anyway, I have decided to kick my cold brewing back into gear regardless of what the weather outside is telling me to do. So of course I had to break out this lovely tea. I was actually shocked to see how low I am running on this tea. Fortunately, now that I am back in California, it isn’t quite as difficult to obtain more of it :)

I just wanted to note that it tastes a bit milder than I remember. That may be because this tea is starting to get old, so the flavor is probably getting weaker from that. Also, I think I underleafed a little bit when I threw it in the fridge last night because my usual handy dandy tablespoon was dirty, so I used a regular spoon to measure. Anyway, so glad to have this back in my life. I predict I will be posting a sad sipdown note of this sometime soon :(

I’m a California girl temporarily located in Boston for school (brrr). I only recently got into teas because I’ve never really liked coffee (too bitter), but I have been a daily barley tea drinker since I was little.

Through some timid tastings and exploring, I so far like:
-Japanese green teas (genmaicha, hojicha, sencha, etc)
-Oolongs! (Most kinds except formosa and dan cong so far)
-Straight black teas
-English Breakfast teas
-Fruity teas (peach, apple, strawberry, other berries)

NOT a huge fan of rooibos, matcha, heavily artificial tasting teas, or anything gingery or peppery, but I’m trying to keep an open mind and taste everything that I can!

I’m trying to sample more straight teas and have been having pretty awesome discoveries so far. Thank goodness for sample sizes!

My tentative rating system:
90-100: Woohoo! I’m loving it, and I’m definitely restocking when I get the chance and/or crying when I’m out.

80-90: Yum! I’ll try to restock if it fits in my budget when I run out.

70-80: Probably would not buy again, but it was nice enough to finish the cup.

50-70: Would not choose this tea for myself if given the situation, but would not reject it if someone offered it to me and would gulp down politely.

50 or less: Nope. Don’t care to taste that tea again, sorry!

I’m always down to swap, so send me a message if anything in my cupboard is calling your name!
