I was in an un-name-able store in order to buy little tea cups so I could have a tea party with my guy friends. Because I couldn’t have tea party without the cups. WELL they had freaking nothing, so I bought four “appetizer bowls” and they work perfectly! They even seem fancy. haha! http://www.webstaurantstore.com/cardinal-r0742-4-oz-spirit-china-deep-appetizer-bowl-24-cs/552R0742.html

I digress, the store also had some Tazo teas! I only go to Starbucks for Pumpkin Spice Lattes, but I thought I would pick some up knowing it’s a decent brand at least!

It’s a nice tea, it’s making me sleepy. It is a little bit like apple pie, but the taste is very mild. After eating a very rich supper of homemade jerk chicken and spinach feta pizza with 13% alcohol honey mead and dark chocolate beer… the mild tea is just what I need to sober up and go to sleepytimes.

It is a bit licorice-y but not too much. Mostly apple and cinnamon, with a lot of woody rooibos. I will try as a latte, and I have vanilla syrup to sweeten so it will be perfect!

My favorite way to sweeten lattes is just drizzle a bit of syrup on top, none inside. This has been such a random note…

I was simply perusing the Tasting Notes, and your comments caught me eye. I hope you don’t mind my jumping in here.

Who says they aren’t? I, for one am male, AND I do not doubt that women are as smart as men. I think my wife is probably smarter than I am, but tell any other men I said that. ; ) I teach and even today I witnessed the brilliance of a young second grader (I would bet she is easily the brightest in her class). I just love seeing children shine!

btw, cool story. I love being resourceful!

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!
