Backlog from yesterday:

So very glad to have a second chance at this tea! Thanks DeleriumsFrog for including this in the package you sent me. I’ve had this one before, but I used the whole sample, and it was too bitter and strong. I gaged that there were about 4 rounded teaspoons in the bag, so if I had used the full tablespoon as directed, I would, once again, run the risk of having too much for one steep—and not enough for the second. It is possible I may have mis-measured, as I woke up still feeling a bit sick, but I scoured the reviews here and decided to go with 2 tsp for my steep…and I am glad I did!

This time the tea was more mellow, and while the espresso was the dominant note, the cantaloupe was lightly present, in more of a lingering juicy taste. I made two steeps of this hot, and a third cold steeped, but I think I’d steeped all the flavour out by then.

I am grateful for the chance to try this one again. I do like the flavours very much!

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are…

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty (except rose), and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

Yes, I do trades…usually on request though. See something you want to try in my cupboard? Just shoot me a message and I’ll see what I can do!

Uh, guess that’s it.
