504 tasting notes

Help me, lovers of this tea. It has such a high rating but I haaaate it. It tastes like cardboard. I have 50g.

So! any tips? haha

Sil

Hey, that’s no help! jk, haha that’s actually a relief, I thought I might be the only one! Solidarity, Sil. That’s what I get for scanning ratings rather than reading actual reviews ;)

Sil

there are a few ppl in the reviews that didn’t like it haha i picked up a toffee dream from another company here in toronto and it’s a much smoother and nicer blend – what i wished this one was.

Cavocorax

I just a checked my review and phew…. I wasn’t one who gushed over it. :p Good luck – hope you can swap it.

Kittenna

Profile

Bio

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
