I was looking through my tasting notes and noticed I never entered a rating nor a new note on this one. I have been taking the little packages of this tea to work and it brews beautifully in my libre travel mug. I throw a very small amount of leaves into the bottom of my travel mug and fill with hot water (yes I leave the leaves there for a couple of hours and it’s fine) Brewed this way, it tastes like a nice fragrant dark oolong, probably doesn’t do this tea justice but it works really well for me at work!!

So so good. Throat is getting much better, nose is still a little stuffed but I wanted something other than strong black tea. Went for a big pot of this tea…wow I can actually taste and sort of smell the “roasted” oolong notes. Although my tealog doesn’t show it this is a teas that I drink all the time. I bumped the rating up because of the three wuyi rock teas I have tried so far this is the most fragrant and is my favourite (although all three are very nice).

drank Decaf Orange Spice by Tea Time

Made a pot of this orange cinnamon decaf black so that I can add honey and almond milk to it for my throat. I probably added too much honey in it (I usually only add a bit of milk) cause the honey is overpowering the tea or it could be that I can’t taste things as well due to the cold/cough. Nevertheless great to have around!

Ok I didn’t realize I had never written a tasting note for this. Since I have none of this tea left that I had purchased a small bag of, I figured this was the best time as any to write about it. The dry leaf the tea smells kind of like bubblegum! I am assuming it is because of the grenadine flavoring. The tea was a bit sweet for me. It reminded me of fruity flavoured kids cough syrup with a medium black base and although I didn’t dislike it…it wasn’t something I would regularly stock either. My coworker was telling me how much her mom loved it so I gave the rest of my bag to a better home:)

Ok I wanted something different from English Breakfast so I brewed a cup of this haha :)
Funny thing is with this sore throat the teas don’t taste that different even though I know they really are a bit different. Of course I added honey and almond milk to this too. If anything at least I will be hydrated. This is a really finely cut Irish breakfast tea so you need a very fine mesh filter or even a paper tea sac filter. This is nice strong and dark tea.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec

This is a good basic English breakfast tea. I have been drinking tea non stop and have been comsuming anything that I could add honey to because of my sore throat :( Anyways I made a small pot of this delicious black tea after I got off work at 3pm. Bonus is there is no caffeine (or almost none). This tea is always stocked in my tea cupboard!

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 45 sec

I am pretty new to trying different types of loose leaf teas. Growing up we only ever had Chinese restaurant tea or bagged orange pekoe. Later on I tried genmai cha at the Japanese restaurants and added that permanently to my tea cupboard.

So far, I like oolongs and black. Most often I drink straight teas but I do like some flavoured ones as long as they don’t taste fakey or chemically. I would like to try more greens, whites and more Rooibos’ as well as anything that doesn’t have caffeine in it to add to my cupboard.

An attempt at a rating system:
90-100 worthy of being permanently stocked in my cupboard
80-89 great tea would love to have in my tea cupboard but probably in smaller quantities
70-79 very nice tea but I don’t necessarily have to have it
60-69 will drink it but not choose to stock it
50-59 prefer not to drink it unless it is all I have
<50 total miss for my tastes
