107 tasting notes

I cannot comment on how this one tastes as a tea. I’ve actually been warned off this one before. It is a decent latte-to-go, although you should be warned that they put pumpkin-flavoured syrup in it to improve the taste when you get it in-store. (No, seriously. Straight from the mouth of an employee I’m friends with.) Also, the manager I was chatting with today added a few shakes of chai spicing on top (which I agreed with, just for the hell of it). It’s a really tasty, sweet pumpkin-chai thing now, but it bears relatively little resemblance to tea.

Also making a tasting note just to note that my home computer will not boot at the moment. At all. It lights up briefly, makes a whirring noise, and dies. Ugh. So it may be a while before I am around much again, since I can only update at school. And I like to have the tea in my mouth when I rate it. Which is hard when you’re at school. Ah, well.

Bio

I’ve always been a tea drinker – I grew up drinking Tetley’s Orange Pekoe and their Chai, and considered myself to really like tea.

I’ve been working various retail jobs to put myself through higher education. One day at my store, a customer left a newly purchased bag of loose-leaf behind. We waited for three days for said customer to return, but they (likely not realizing where they had left their bag) did not return to claim the would-be brew. Too bad for them; lucky for me! I claimed the bag, took it home, and awkwardly made my first cup of loose-leaf tea with the only strainer we owned which was small enough.

I haven’t bothered with Tetley since. For the most part (and due to convenience), my patronage is limited to David’s Tea and Teavana. I also order from 52teas and Verdant Tea.

My rating system – hah, I don’t have a rating system. I rate teas a lot like Ebert rates movies. Everything’s relative.

I may often forget to mention it, but you can safely assume everything I drink is sweetened in one way or another – most rock sugar, or honey for green and white teas. I have not yet achieved drinking most tea clear. The few teas I drink unsweetened include milk oolong and genmaicha so far.

I currently work for Teavana. But I just work there, and my opinions about any of their teas are entirely my own and not meant to be reflective of the views of the company.
