drank Read my Queen, Mate by Custom
514 tasting notes

I was tired, but I wanted something tasty, picked up Read my Lips and I knew it wouldn’t be strong enough. Looked at Queen Catherine and knew she was bold and threw in a bit of roasted mate for good measure.

I’ll admit, it’s not the tastiest in the world, but man it’s keeping me awake. I’ll have to play with the ratio a bit, but as of right now it was 1 tsp RML, 1 tsp QC and .5 tsp mate

There’s a hint of mint, but a little too much roastiness/sort of woodiness from the mate. Next time I’ll get it right.


lol, gotta love the tea name!

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!
