Second tea that I had neglected to write notes for on Monday. I remember rather enjoying this one. I agree with the observation that Jillian made a out it being a very dainty old-fashioned tea. It really does seem like that. The rose scent was surprisingly well blended with the bergamot (furthermore, I just realized that I’ve been spelling bergamot wrong every single time for the past year… Just wow…) and wasn’t overpowering. However, I don’t enjoy the very floral note that rose petals typically add to a tea, so I couldn’t love it. Though the rose notes weren’t too strong, they were a very specific type of rose scent that makes me think of those fake dried rose petals (I would sometimes find them in little bowls in bathrooms?) that were scented and typically smelled like old lady perfume. Maybe that’s why this tea seems so old fashioned. Honestly though it wasn’t bad and I didn’t mind drinking it, but again just not for me.

I joined Steepster Nov. 2/’15. I am an aspiring law student, currently studying for the LSAT. Meanwhile, I drink a lot of tea, work as a legal assistant and watch Netflix in my down time.

Ever since joining Steepster, I have tried a whole bunch new tea, met awesome people, and learned quite a lot! I am still expanding my tea horizons, currently working on exploring the oolong and puerh territories. Oolong has been a pleasant journey so far, while puerh is more rocky and uncertain. I shall keep trekking on!

My favourite teas are blacks and greens, both flavoured and unflavoured, and I have a few staples that I drink all the time.

I love to try teas that I would otherwise not have access to, and therefore I am always looking for people to trade samples with. Send me a message if you are interested!

My Wishlist is teas that I would like to restock (as a note to myself). My ratings are mostly arbitrary. Generally, anything above 90 I will likely restock. 70-80 I enjoyed, but will not go out of my way to get again. Anything below 70 was not that great, and the lower the mark the less I enjoyed it.
