This tea has a lovely sweet nose. I initially tried drinking it without sugar, and Liked the taste, but was distracted by a slight bitterness. When I added NutraSweet (which I usually use with flavored teas) the bitterness disappeared and the fruit flavor seemed to improve. It now had a soft, fruity flavor, and a nice finish. The more I sipped, the more I liked it. I also thought I detected a hint of caramel.

My ratings will usually be based on multiple tastings. Green and oolong teas are generally 3 grams of tea in 6 oz water for 1 minute. Black teas are 1.5 grams of tea in 6 oz water for 3-4 minutes.

My numerical ratings are all based on how much enjoyment I took from the tea. Since I prefer blacks and oolongs, they will receive higher scores. I also give a couple of extra points to decafs, just because I can drink them in the evening without staying up half the night. I don’t dislike flavored teas, but find that they lack the complexity of finer teas.

90-100 = superior, worth a high price
80-89 = Excellent. Will buy again
70-79 = Good tea, but probably won’t buy
60-69 = Nothing really wrong, but…
Below 60 = Wouldn’t drink again
