drank Key Lime by DAVIDsTEA
719 tasting notes

I declared today as sipdown day and sipdown day it is! Yes. Three teas sipped down is a success for me hahha
But I am slowly getting rid of my teas! Packing them up into smaller bags to give to friends. I think I’m almost to a 2 digit number! And to think today I started off with like 175 teas wow.

This tea smells good, almost like Midsummer Night’s Dream? Definitely looks like it’d taste much better iced though. It does have a bit of a musty undertone to it, but still bright from the lime.
Tastes of dusty lime haha. I don’t know. It’s the teas that have dried fruit that always have that wet basement/dank undertone to it. No matter how bright the fruit is, it’s like wet basement.

((that wet basement would probably be gone if I iced this though… but I’m just way too lazy))

Whoa, that means almost 75 teas gone in a day to get to double digits?!

I know right??
Well, I sorta cheated haha. I have a bunch of teas that I just have 5-10g of that I’ve already tasted and didn’t really care for. So now I have nearly 100 small baggies of tea samples that I’ll take to work with me on my last day :)

Tea rating guide:
100-95: Best thing to ever touch my mouth and I want more. Restocking is a must
94-80: Love this tea. Restock if I can
79-70: Decent tea. Neither love nor hate.
69-60: I won’t be upset when it runs out. I’ll drink it but won’t restock.
59-30: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea and I’ll finish the cup.
29-10: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea. It may or may not have gone down the sink…
9-below: Let’s not even hide it. This definitely went down the drain.

I love tea.
I drink it.
I log it.
I have a good time.
Lather, rinse, repeat.

I first discovered my love for tea with jasmine teas because that’s all my mother would buy, so for the longest time, I thought that all teas were jasmine! And then in 4th grade, I watched the tea episode of Good Eats and that’s when the education started! I’d like to blame Alton Brown for starting this obsession because now I only like loose leaf tea.
It wasn’t until my second year of college that I actually expanded my tea taste buds. Special shout out to Cara McGee, Tea Queen for her Adagio Fandom blends. Because of Cara, I actually started drinking blacks, herbals and whites and pretty much everything else in between. I still have a special love for my jasmine though :)
I (try to) drink tea daily. Usually just straight up, no sugar or milk. This little obsession started young and just… kept going, I guess.

also I apologize in advance for lazy tasting notes and horrible grammar in everything I write. I was an avid fandom blogger on tumblr and tumblr talk can get in the way of everything kthxbai
