(I was going by my Facebook name which is April but I wanted a more tea-like handle!)
Sheesh, what does a girl write?
I’ve been drinking loose leaf teas for about four years and bagged teas since I could digest it. I live in the southern United States where ice cold sweet tea is called “The Table Wine of the South”. Even though it might not be as refined as some of the more exotic teas that I sample, I love brewing it, drinking it and sharing it.
I am always exploring new teas and new flavors. I have discovered some fun ones over the years, but my location has really prevented me from sampling some of the greater opportunities out there.
So joining this site is a step towards new teas, new friends and new tastes.
Current Tea Shops:
I have experience with very few tea retailers but I hope that this space will soon have more names
Mrs. Rosemarie’s Special Teas (Sadly, a tea house that has closed)
The English Tea Room Teas (http://www.englishtearoom.com/)
This is a fabulous teahouse in Covington, LA.
Tea Forte: They were really nice and sent me some samples to review! I look forward to shopping at their online shop sometime soon!
1-25: Bleck! Never again! See, I have to really, really dislike a tea to give it a rating this low. It has to be gross. I probably won’t even finish the cup.
26-50: Meh. It was not the best. I might drink it down if I bought it, or finish it off, but I won’t purchase it again or recommend it to anyone.
51-75: Pretty Tasty! I would try this one again! I might also buy it. And tell people to try it. And move it around and blend it with other teas because its so good I can’t imagine it being bad!
76-100: GET IN MA BELLY! I own this tea. I will never not have this tea. This tea is my best friend and the companion to my soul
