Bird & Blend Advent Tea Calendar Day ?? (*Either the 17th or the 18. Opened the teas for both days at the same time this evening and forgot to note which was which. I decided to have this now because it was non caffeinated.

Like just about all rooibos teas this one brewed up very dark. The flavor was pleasant both hot and warm. It’s darned cold in my place tonight so the tea cooled very quickly, When it was cool I tasted the rooibos more strongly. So I enjoyed this one better hot. Not tremendously memorable for me, but a nice cup for before bed. I’d be happy to drink it again, altho I don’t see myself placing an order for it.

I love cats. I love alone time. I love sitting indoors on a cold winter night with a book or my knitting while drinking tea. I don’t have a sense of smell, so many of the more subtle flavors of tea escape me. Two of the things I CAN taste are bitter and sour, so any tea that has even a slightly bitter taste is nasty for me. And what others might perceive as pleasant tartness may be horribly sour for me.

I’m also a writer. I love writing, and a mug of hot tea helps me get through the hours sitting in front of the computer. Although I’m a comparatively new tea drinker, I’m jumping in feet first. Feel free to recommend any teas you think I might enjoy.

100-91 – Wowza! I want to keep this tea in the cupboard all the time.
75-90 – Very nice. It would be good to have this tea on hand from time to time.
60-74 – OK. Wouldn’t keep it in the cupboard, but I would drink it again.
45-59 – If a friend served this I would drink it to be polite, but it’s not really my cuppa.
Lower than 45 – Blech. It was too sour or bitter for my taste. Would not drink it again.
