When I first smelled this at DAVIDsTEA I wasn’t sure about buying this or not, just because I didn’t like the scent (green tea + fruit makes me think of flavoured medicine)
Well I needed some more green tea for the house so I bought it anyways. Of course this also has black tea and green rooibos in it, but it’s in the green tea section of the store so it must have a larger amount of green tea.

There are so many ingredients in this one that I can’t even really pin point what I like most about it. But it works together really well, and it tastes great. I also think it has a wonderful cost to price ratio. It’s also a good resteeper; during a party with friends, I resteeped it four times and no one seemed to notice a drop in flavour.

I’ve tasted better blends, but this tea exceeded my expectations so I’m happy with it.

Preparation

Feel free to add me on Steepster, I’ll probably add you back. :)

I don’t log tea every time I drink it. Tasting notes tend to be about either one style of brewing or a new experience. It is helpful for me to look back on my notes and see what a tea tasted like or which steeping parameter worked best for me. I try to mostly short steep tea unless it only tastes better with a long steep. I’d rather experience what a tea tastes like over 3 or 12 steeps than just 1 to 3 long steeps.

When I write “tsp”, the measurement I use is a regular western teaspoon. Not a tea scoop

What my tea ratings mean:

99-100: Teas that blow my mind! An unforgettable experience. Savoured to the last drop. I felt privileged to drink this.

90-98: Extraordinary, highly recommended, try it and you won’t be disappointed (and if you are, mail me the tea!)

85-89: Wonderful, couldn’t expect more but not a favourite.

80-84: Excellent, a treasured experience but not a favourite.

70-79: Good but could be better. Above average.

60-69: Average, unexceptional, not something I would buy again. Slightly disappointed. I’d rather drink water.

50-0: Varying degrees of sadness

No rating: Mixed feelings, can’t decide whether I like it or not, not enough experience with that sort of tea to rate it. A dramatic change of heart.
