I loved Teatoxy’s Calm Me blend, and went through my bag of that so quickly it was unreal. Now that it’s gone, I’m starting to give this one more of a look-in. It’s such a variable tea, it’s actually quite surprising! My last cup was pale pink, with notes of hibiscus, lemongrass, apple and peppermint. This time, the liquor is a deeper red-brown, and the only flavours I can detect are hibiscus and lemongrass, in that order. Strangely, though, I’m not looking on this as a bad thing. For a morning tea, it’s tart freshness is actually quite welcome in a “blow away the cobwebs” kind of way. I guess my experience with this tea varies depending on the exact make up of each scoop of tea. The ingredients are so huge, it can be difficult to get a balanced distribution. In some ways, that just makes it all the more intriguing!

I like lemongrass, so the fresh citrussy burst of flavour here is very welcome. I’m less keen on hibiscus, but it’s not super tart or sour here, so I actually don’t mind it being a part of things. Morning is quickly becoming my second favourite Teatoxy blend. Although their range is small at the moment, I’m quickly beginning to think of their teas as being effective and of reliable quality, in addition to being fairly unique! A company I hope to see more of in future.

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.
