Sending the rest of this off in a swap.

So I never did review my real experience with this tea… the first time I thought the bitterness was just an error on my part (water too hot, etc), and that that AMAZING drool worthy black currant smell would come out in a later cup.

MM afraid not, I can’t seem to make this one not be a bitter mess! Yay for double negatives. Butbutbut – because of some of the raving reviews I hear from others, I have hope in passing this one on to a better home. It’s only enough for one cup, so if it fails, the world will go on. :)

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!
