drank Cherry Tea by Teanzo 1856
296 tasting notes

The last day of Teanzo’s Advent Calendar! I don’t know why they chose this particular blend for the finale of their advent calendar. It did not make me feel particularly Christmas-y. I saw the back of this package and the disappointment set in. If there was any candy flavoring that I hated most as a child, it was cherry. I almost didn’t want to drink this at all. But I had gone this far, so…
I did. And it wasn’t bad.
That being said, I mean not bad as in, ‘it could have been worse.’ It was a subdued flavor of cherry. More like … cherry flavored yogurt. The black tea base was the saving grace, as it was bold and robust. It tried it’s best to hide the medicinal cherry flavor. It did a good job for the most part. Too bad. Maybe if they switched day 1 with day 24, it would have ended more festively.
Thanks Teanzo for the crazy ride!

I dream in tea.

My name is Maddi. I like to take boiling hot showers and meditate in my closet. I think and talk about tea so much that it has become a punchline of sorts with my family and coworkers. Besides my unhealthy obsession with the drink that gives me life, I do yoga frequently, I make green smoothies out of any vegetables and fruit in the nearest vicinity, I am obsessed with Korean Dramas, I run as a form of moving meditation, and play video games with my easygoing and forgiving boyfriend. I used to cook for a living, and I almost always eat at least one waffle a day.

Favorite types of teas:
Aged Oolongs hold my heart. Sneaking their way in are Korean Greens. Roasted oolongs and I are not on speaking terms as of late. Black teas of all types, but especially Fujian and some Yunnan are nice indulgences more often than not. I know and love Japanese greens more than any kind, while Chinese greens bore me. Certain White teas thrill me, but most have me changing the channel. I love using my Yerba Mate gourd, we have become steadfast amigos. Puerh and I are still getting to know each other, and while sheng is playing hard to get, shou is there to hold my hand when no one is looking. I sometimes make my own functional herbal blends, and if there is a hell, it is filled with Rooibos. Above all else, direct – trade tea is my favorite.

LEAST Favorite Flavors/Flavorings
Herbs, if they are out of place (I’m talking to you, thyme)
Strong Bergamot
Chocolate (added flavorings)
Cloves/strong cinnamon

MOST Adored Flavor Profiles
Majority of chai
Stone fruit/melon

“Tea is naught but this:
First you heat the water.
Then you make the tea.
Then you drink it properly.
That is all you need to know.”
