467 tasting notes

This is a lovely looking tea. I have it in a clear jar (Kept in a nice dark cabinet) and it just plain looks lovely. Aroma is flowery and nice gunpowder tea. Touch of lemon, as well as, the floral scent. Taste is well balanced. I always worry about anything that has rose in it because some times they sneak those tart rose hips in there. Luckily, there is no tartness from the rose. It’s a very comforting tea. No bitterness, no odd notes of flavor you can’t identify. I am enjoying it on another cold (Snowy!) Spring day. I mean really… It’s the middle of April! The temp was 21 degrees this morning. It was 75 degrees two days ago!!!! (Hey, can anybody tell me how to make the degree signs I don’t have to write degree all the time?)
I like this tea but I like fruity teas rather than floral, so this is not one of my favorites. I resteeped and it was still very good. One problem I have with the Breville is that I have to make any tea with a two cup minimum. If resteeped, I suddenly have 4 cups of the same tea. I took a quick sip of the resteep and then put the rest in the refrigerator and I’ll see how it tastes. Not a cold brew, just a chilled tea. I’ll try a cold brew another time. They recommended 1-2 tsp. and I went with 2 tsp/cup.

Retired first grade teacher. I tend to like dessert type/herbal teas as a substitute for sweet treats; flavored black teas and mates to get that energy that I am often lacking ;-p
My husband of 43 years thinks I’m nuts regarding the whole tea thing… but he bought me a Breville for Christmas, so what can I say. :-D
My other interests are reading (books go well with tea :D) and beading. I volunteer at my “old” school teaching reading and I volunteer for the blind. I am trying hard to lose weight ( I have now lost 40 lbs and I’m looking good in my skinny jeans, IMHO) I am now walking about 4.5 miles a day and I am trying to do some core work for about 30 min. 3x a week.

I have been watching Doctor Who for 33years. In case you can’t tell my avatar is two daleks drinking tea! I am always open to swapping Doctor Who books for tea. I have about 120 Doctor Who books that I am eager to send some to a fan. :D Let me know if you would like any books! I love that so many people have begun watching DW!

Also I love swaps, pm me if you’d like to do a swap.

Since I find others’ rating legends helpful, I added my own.

95-100 A once in a lifetime experience; the best there is; will keep this stocked until the cows come home

90-94 First rate; top notch; really terrific; will definitely buy more

80-89 Excellent; likely to become a favorite, will likely buy more

70-79 Very good; would enjoy again, might buy again if in the mood for this particular one or a better, similar version not available or it’s on a really good sale :-)

50-69 Good; wouldn’t pass up if offered, but probably wouldn’t buy again unless craving this particular flavor

Below 50 Meh! Wouldn’t bother drinking it again.
