Gah, without realizing it, my kettle heated the water too much, so my first cup of this was definitely burnt. Greens, why you so delicate?

Determined since I liked what was under the burnt taste, I tried again. And this time I definitely got the brew right. It’s an interesting tea, and I loved the smell of it as I pulled the infuser and the first sips.

I’m halfway through the glass now, though, and I’m starting to get that feeling in my mouth from chewable vitamins, and that horrid fake orange taste. The tea itself is still nice, but my mouth seems to be rebelling against it. I’m going to rate it based on the tea flavour, but those unsure, beware if you don’t like a dryer mouth!

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!
