One of my favorite teas. I think it was this tea. Good Earth has changed things up a few times over the years. I was first introduced to this tea in January of 1998, before I completely lost my sense of smell. I drove from North Dakota to Minneapolis during some horridly bad weather. I arrived 3 hours late, exhausted from white knuckled driving and my hostess made a pot of this tea. I remember the great burst of delicious cinnamon that scented the air. Drinking it was like drinking liquid red hots. I’ve loved it ever since. Even now, when my sense of smell is completely gone, I can remember how lovely it smelled and I still enjoy it.

I love cats. I love alone time. I love sitting indoors on a cold winter night with a book or my knitting while drinking tea. I don’t have a sense of smell, so many of the more subtle flavors of tea escape me. Two of the things I CAN taste are bitter and sour, so any tea that has even a slightly bitter taste is nasty for me. And what others might perceive as pleasant tartness may be horribly sour for me.

I’m also a writer. I love writing, and a mug of hot tea helps me get through the hours sitting in front of the computer. Although I’m a comparatively new tea drinker, I’m jumping in feet first. Feel free to recommend any teas you think I might enjoy.

100-91 – Wowza! I want to keep this tea in the cupboard all the time.
75-90 – Very nice. It would be good to have this tea on hand from time to time.
60-74 – OK. Wouldn’t keep it in the cupboard, but I would drink it again.
45-59 – If a friend served this I would drink it to be polite, but it’s not really my cuppa.
Lower than 45 – Blech. It was too sour or bitter for my taste. Would not drink it again.
