91 tasting notes

Originally I purchased this for a friend who sticks to mostly herbal and decaf teas because it smelled so good. I tried a cup with her thinking I wouldn’t like it because of the hibiscus and raisins in it. Surprisingly, I found it quite enjoyable and definitely channeling the flavour of baked goods. There’s a nice fruitiness from the blueberries and apples that blends into a buttery and cake-like baked flavour. I ended up buying my own pack afterwards and enjoyed it thoroughly during a visit with my folks this past weekend. I’m learning I maybe shouldn’t veto teas just because of hibiscus. But it needs to be hidden well. Really well.

Flavors: Apple, Baked Bread, Blueberry, Butter, Cake

Bio

I’m a mid-thirties tea loving guy on the West Coast of Canada. Only really got into tea in the last 6 years largely because my exposure to tea was always bagged rather than loose before that. It wasn’t long for me to become hooked with loose leaf tea though.

My favourites are fruity black teas, chocolate and dessert teas and fruit/nut blends.

Other interests include films, meditation, reading, writing and computer games.

Working on living healthier and sweet teas are a nice alternative to full desserts and other sugary snacks and drinks for me.

I only rate teas once and use the following spectrum:
100 – Only one tea receive this from me. It’s that good.
95 – Only three teas receive this from me. They are that good.
90-94 – These are top rated teas for me but fall just short of my top 4 or ultimate tier teas.
80-89 – Very pleasant, enjoyable. Would definitely purchase again but wouldn’t necessarily rush out for it.
70-79 – Decent teas. They had their charm while they lasted but I’m undecided about buying them again.
60-69 – Alright teas. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing amazing either. Unless it’s on sale, I won’t buy again.
50-59 – Meh, I can take or leave this. There’s something about it that borders on dislike for me.
40-49 – Sorry this one’s just not for me.
30-39 – Definitely not for me. Wasn’t able to finish it.
0-29 – How dare they call this “tea”.
