Untasted teas remaining: 36

I must have bought this one during the summer to use for cold brewing. But since that’s not something I’m doing anymore since the weather is cooler, I’m trying it hot.

This is quite tart, but that’s actually not a bad thing in this case since there’s so much citrus. There’s also a bit of balancing sweetness somehow. I can taste orange, lemon, and a bit of grapefruit here, and perhaps even a sweeter citrus like a mandarin. Plus obviously, the hibiscus, which I think adds a nice bit of floral. There’s also a bit of more zingy artificial orange flavor, like Tang or vitamin C chewables.

It’s not amazing or anything, but it’s much better than I expected it would be as a hot beverage. Especially since in all fairness, it’s likely meant to be an iced tea.

Flavors: Citrus, Grapefruit, Hibiscus, Lemon, Orange, Sweet, Tart

Hi, I’m Cameron!

I’m a 30-something software engineer currently living in Austin, Texas with my husband and our two pugs, Gobo and Ume. I tend to cycle between my different hobbies, and they include piano, knitting, video games, board games, miniature painting, planners, bento, KBeauty, and – of course – TEA! But really, what I’m best at is “collecting” hobby-related things… ;)

I prefer my tea lukewarm or at room temperature and without milk or sugar. I steep Western style, and fluctuate between using big mugs or small teapots depending on the season.

I am always up for a swap! Just let me know if you’d like to try something in my cupboard.

Tea Preferences:
I enjoy both flavored and unflavored teas in many forms. These days, I drink mostly flavored teas, and I tend to gravitate most toward black, green, oolong, and herbal varieties. I do have a special fondness for straight Japanese green teas, however.

I do not sweeten my teas, and pre-sweetened teas are usually too sweet for me. I also do not enjoy stevia.

I tend to reach for fruitier flavors rather than desserty ones these days, but I do have favorites from both categories. Willing to try anything once! There are a few ingredients/flavors that aren’t generally my jam, such as coconut, rose, lavender, and chocolate flavoring. But I also have teas that I love with some of those things, too! :)

Favorite Companies:
3 Leaf
Bird & Blend
Dammann Frères
Harney & Sons
Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms
Old Barrel Tea Co
Simpson & Vail
Taiwan Tea Crafts

Tea Rating Scale:
90-100: Outstanding! Permanent cupboard resident
80-89: Great – a possible staple
70-79: Good, but I wouldn’t buy it
60-69: It’s decent
50-59: Meh… I may or may not have finished the cup
40-49: Ick. Couldn’t finish it.
00-39: Repulsive, I spat it out

I will sometimes refrain from rating a tea if I feel I’m too biased due to my personal dislikes, or if I suspect the sample has been compromised by age or scent contamination.
