From Carol Who.

When I found this tea I was very, very surprised. A spicy tea? What’s that? :D Being terrified of spiciness, I avoided it for a while. But tonight being another tasting night, I decided to give it a go. With much trepidation, I brewed my cup, sat it on the table and began tasting with my sister. Meanly, I handed this cup to her first. I didn’t warn her. I’m a terrible person.

But her face was priceless.

After she finished beating me, I tried it. It was spicy water with no flavor to me. She got her husband who is the one we nicknamed “Dragon” for reasons not entirely unrelated to his spicy eating habits. He almost liked it. Almost. But to him, the afterburn was just an annoyance. It didn’t provide a nice enough burn on the tongue and there was no good flavor surrounding the burn. We sweetened and cooled it next and he said maybe if it were “Southern-style sweet tea” (read: Iced and way too much sugar) it might be good. But as it was, it was the wrong kind of spicy for him.

And if you want proof that I’m a terrible person… next I let my 7 year old daughter try it.

… I am a terrible, terrible person.

(No children were harmed in the making of this review. She giggled after she finished washing the taste out.)

That said, no. Just no. Not for me. Thank you Carol Who.. .for the most entertaining “NO” I’ve had yet in a tea. :)

I got it in a swap and almost threw it out after I tried it. But I thought maybe someone else might find some redeeming quality that I missed. Sorry :(

Hahahahaha There is absolutely no need to apologize to me ever. This was one of the most entertaining experiences, like I said :)
We were all kinda amazed that this existed as a tea. Much like the time we had the “Fennel Spice” encounter. XD

No please don’t take me wrong, Carol Who. We loved that this tea was a part of our night. We just won’t be drinking it haha. :)

Bio

Loves tea, reading, music, art, video games, roleplaying, and spending time with her wife and daughter. :)

Ask me for a $5 gift cert to Adagio if you’ve never ordered from them!

As for tea, loves flavored black teas, herbals, and good lattes most. Green is hit or miss with me and I haven’t found a white I like yet. I like my tea sweet, no matter how much some tea connoisseurs turn their noses up at me for it. I love trying new teas and I’ll try anything once!

I noticed this elsewhere on the site so I’m going to post a ratings legend as well:

95-100 Favorite; This is one of my favorite teas. I will want to keep this in stock all the time. I will drink a lot of this tea. I’m likely to send samples of this in swaps because I LOVE it and want to SHARE my love of it with you!

90-94 Excellent; Some of the best teas I’ve tried. Delish. I will probably buy more.

80-89 Very Good; I liked it and would like to have it again for sure. I will surely buy it again at some point. Not quite “The best” of any category, but some good stuff to be sure.

70-79 Pretty Good; Maybe it’s just not quite my type of tea or not quite my flavor, but I acknowledge that it’s a good tea. I might drink it again if the mood strikes me. Not very likely to buy it again. May still recommend it to others based on their tastes.

50-69 Okay; I probably won’t buy it again, but will probably finish drinking what I have. It’s not bad. Not good… but not bad. I probably won’t recommend it.

50 or less Meh; I didn’t really enjoy this tea. I won’t buy it again and can’t recommend it.

10-0 I must have really, really hated this tea. It may have killed my puppy or absconded with my cheesecake. I’m pretty sure it killed Professor Xavier.
