Day 2 Etsy Tea Advent Calendar

I am not a fan of green tea. It always has a grass clippings edge to me. I almost didn’t brew it. But heck, it’s just one bag; why not try it? I like coconut.

Did not like this one. Glad I tried it, but I am not getting any coconut, only that grass clipping coating on the back of my tongue. Even worse, it is grass clippings that have been rained on and then sat in a very hot sun too long.

Others who like green tea might very well enjoy this one more. It is not for me. Even if a friend served this I wouldn’t drink it. So far my my tea advent calendar is 0 for 2. But we have 22 more days, so surely there will be some I like. Meanwhile, I think I will brew myself a little something I know I like.

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.
