I’m very open minded when it comes to food and drink. I ordered this because it was on sale and I was ultra curious.

The smell was not quite what I expected. It really made me go “Heh?” I’ve smelled it quite a few times and I still can’t make up my mind on how I feel about it.

So I brewed it. I iced it and took it in my giant travel mug. Tasted it. Not BAD, but not good either. I added hot sauce because I wanted it savoury. Drinkable but still not yum.

I tried again the next time, this time hot. The first thing I picked up on hot was cinnamon. Cinnamon? Really? And I got the sweetness of the raisins. I dumped it down the sink. I have too many nice teas to waste my time drinking something I’m not in love with.

Tea literally gets me through the day. I start with something caffeinated in the morning, then usually a re-steep or less caffeinated tea mid morning and work my way to a herbal by night.

Green tea and oolong are top in my books. I recently discovered that I LOVE genmaicha – but I get why it’s not for everyone. My favourite flavours right now are lime, lavender and mint. I tend to dislike teas that have raisins or hibiscus, and I’m not fond of weak fruit infusions.

A lot of my teas come from Davidstea. I also have some Teavana and Tealish. When I can, I try to pick up unique teas. My most prized tea is a tea from Ste Anne’s Spa in Grafton, Ont called Cinnamon Glow.
