Yay! More mulberries. This came to me as a sample from KittyLovesTea, and fits perfectly with my current mulberry adoration. This is a herbal blend, containing mulberry leaves and macadamia nuts. As per the recommended parameters, I used 1.5tsp of leaf, and gave it about 4 minutes in boiling water. The resulting liquor is yellow-green (pretty perfect considering that this is a Halloween themed tea!), and smells deliciously sweet and creamy.

To taste, it’s just as wonderful as I’d hoped. There’s the initial taste of sweet, rich caramel that I’ve come to expect from mulberry teas, which is perfectly augmented by the creamy nuttiness of the macadamia nuts. It’s one of those rare teas that tastes as good as it smells, and in this case that’s very good indeed.

I’d happily drink this for the rest of my life, but I had just a one cup sample that’s now gone. On the strength of those I’ve tried so far, Mulberry teas are definitely something I’ll seek out in the future. Absolutely delicious!

Hi :) I’m Sarah, and I live in Norfolk in the UK. My tea obsession began when a friend introduced me to Teapigs a good few years ago now. Since then, I’ve been insatiable. Steepster introduced me to a world of tea I never knew existed, and my goal is now to TRY ALL THE TEAS. Or most of them, anyway.

I still have a deep rooted (and probably life-long) preference for black tea. My all-time favourite is Assam, but Ceylon and Darjeeling also occupy a place in my heart. Flavoured black tea can be a beautiful thing, and I like a good chai latte in the winter.

I also drink a lot of rooibos/honeybush tea, particularly on an evening. Sometimes they’re the best dessert replacements, too. White teas are a staple in summer — their lightness and delicate nature is something I can always appreciate on a hot day.

I’m still warming up to green teas and oolongs. I don’t think they’ll ever be my favourites, with a few rare exceptions, but I don’t hate them anymore. My experience of these teas is still very much a work-in-progress. I’m also beginning to explore pu’erh, both ripened and raw. That’s my latest challenge!

I’m still searching for the perfect fruit tea. One without hibiscus. That actually tastes of fruit.

You’ve probably had enough of me now, so I’m going to shut up. Needless to say, though, I really love tea. Long may the journey continue!

My rating system:

91-100: The Holy Grail. Flawless teas I will never forget.

81-90: Outstanding. Pretty much perfection, and happiness in a cup.

71-80: Amazing. A tea to savour, and one I’ll keep coming back to.

61-70: Very good. The majority of things are as they should be. A pleasing cup.

51-60: Good. Not outstanding, but has merit.

41-50: Average. It’s not horrible, but I’ve definitely had better. There’s probably still something about it I’m not keen on.

31-40: Almost enjoyable, but something about it is not for me.

11-30: Pretty bad. It probably makes me screw my face up when I take a sip, but it’s not completely undrinkable.

0-10: Ugh. No. Never again. To me, undrinkable.
