OMG, this is horrible! Okay, it’s really not that bad. But it tastes EXACTLY like apple cider minus the apple.

All I’m getting is hot cinnamon/ginger water. If I poured this into some hot apple juice, it would probably be a lot more enjoyable. I drank it straight without any milk or sweetener in a bagged version (and I’m confident loose leaf would not have improved this any).

I was intrigued by the name. How can this tea be black AND green??!
The answer is: it can’t.

I didn’t even get any “tea” flavor. Nope. All I get is a blend of spices in my cup, no black tea, and definitely no green tea.

This just has too much going on: black, green, chai, organic, premium. Yuck. This company tried too hard. They should have picked one type of tea and concentrated on making it perfection. Instead, they created an apple cider minus the apple, which I’d rather have added back in.

Don’t be fooled by the name. This is not premium tea, and I for one could not care less if it was Certified USDA Organic or not. Okay, enough ranting.
Moving on!

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!

My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.

I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
