I love the smell of this tea. The first time I opened the bag I felt like just dumping the leaves into my mouth and chowing down because it smelled like a bag of the dessert itself. I rushed home from work that night to brew and . . . was mildly disappointed. Brewed as is, I find the tea is slightly lacking as other reviewers have said.

Blended however with just a hint of another stronger berry tea? This tea sparkles and shines. I used a “Very Berry” blend I got from McNulty’s in NYC, with just a third of a teaspoon, along with half a teaspoon of sugar after steeping.

Man was I surprised to discover that now it tasted exactly how it smelled, crumble and all. And as it cooled, the flavour just kept getting better. Now I’m eager for my next cup!

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.


My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
