My Bird and Blend tea order arrived! I got 50 grams each of Wisktea and Terry Chocolate Orange, as well as my first subscription package. This was one of the samples included and I decided to brew it up right away. It’s quite cool today and rainy, so a warm caffeine free tea sounded perfect for this evening.

I liked this. I didn’t taste much, but the ginger was strong enough for me to feel on my tongue. It’s been a year since my last kenalog shot, so my sense of smell has been gone for about 8 months. In the absence of smell, I taste very little. So knowing that I was drinking something besides warm water was welcome.

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.
