Here’s Hoping Traveling Teabox – Round #5 – Tea #23
This one is from another Etsy shop and the ingredients list is intriguing: Flaked coconut, curry leaf, galangal and kaffir lime. I GUESS there is black tea here, but I can’t tell by the description or that most of the listed ingredients compose most of this sample anyway. If there is black tea here, the resulting brew is very very light. It isn’t too spicy from the curry leaf. And the coconut really smooths it out while also not tasting much like coconut. It’s more of a texture than a taste. I had to look up ‘galangal’ and it’s ginger. I’m not a fan of ginger but the flavor didn’t seem too gingery. Something leaves the brew with more of a vegetal flavor than anything. This one is okay, but there isn’t enough to make it special. A tea with the awesome name “Chailand Curry” should really be as awesome!

Too bad. It sounds like it should be a fine tea.

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

I’m always in search of: Hattialli, Qu Hao black, Jin Jun Mei, teas using marshmallow root.

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer… I have a dumb phone so can’t access internet on that. As of 12/20/21 my wifi might start getting unreliable.)

Happy sipping!
