Bird & Blend Tea Advent Calendar Day 1:

Yay!! Tea Advent Calendar season has begun!!! In the past I’ve gotten the David’s Tea calendar and the Dammann Freres tea advent calendar, and this year I decided to try this one. It is such a fun thing to do: open the door and find out which tea is for today. I’m like a kid that way.

I was such a good girl. I got this over a month ago and very carefully kept it tucked away in the closet until yesterday. I peeled back the door this afternoon to find this tea. I already have this tea , but since I really like it, I went ahead and brewed the sachet up. It was just as good as the loose leaf. Mild, not cloyingly sweet, and smooth. A delicious treat.

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.
