drank Blueberry Green by Tetley
31 tasting notes

Another bagged, flavoured green I picked up at work. Compared to the Mint Green from Tetley that I really liked this one was a bit of a disappointment. The blueberry flavour didn’t seem to meld well with the green tea, you got this hit of very sweet (and slightly fake) tasting blueberry and then the flavour of the green tea and even though it was from the same sip it just seemed…disjointed somehow? If the blueberry had tasted more like actual blueberries rather then sugary-sweet blueberry candy it probably would have been a good combination, as it was it was meh.

Ending on a good note the green tea didn’t turn bitter even though it was probably overcooked and oversteeped which is handy in a bagged tea which I at least tend to drink it non-optimum tea conditions.

Bio

In hopes of standardizing my ratings a bit more I’ve devised my own scale:

1 – 19: (F-) Ugh. Given to Mr. Sink Drain to enjoy after a couple sips. Never again. Would only give away with a strong warning (or to someone I didn’t like).

20 – 29: (F) Ick. Managed to finish the cup out of stubbornness, but tasted bad the whole time. Will throw out/give away any I have left.

30 – 49: (F+) Meh. I didn’t warrant an “ugh” or “ick” it but I can’t say I enjoyed it. Will throw out/give away any I have left.

40 – 59: (D) Okay. Not a truly bad tea but just personally not my thing. Will (try) to finish but won’t reorder.

60 – 69: © Decent. Drinkable and getting towards good but just falls a little short. Will finish but won’t reorder.

70 – 79: (B) Good. Enjoyed this tea. Will likely reorder at some point but probably won’t be a tea shelf regular.

80 – 89: (B+) Very good. Would definitely put on my “reorder” list when I run out.

90 – 99: (A) YUM! A favourite. Would go on my “pre-order before I run out list” to keep it on hand.

100! (A+) OMG! Mind blowingly-good. The tried-and-true favourites that I MUST ALWAYS HAVE.

I am an acknowledged book addict, intrepid snowboarder, amateur teaite, crafter-creator, eager debater, ICU nurse, reluctant runner, animal lover, tree hugger + future world traveler.

With a palate ruined by years of hot-sauce-on-everything, espresso-based lattes and university student cooking I prefer bold teas and often miss nuances unless they are the gustatory equivalent of a two-by four. I don’t enjoy bitterness and love chais.
