Backlog:

I don’t know if this is the entry for the box of large tea bags/filters or if it’s the entry for the black iced tea you might get at a Starbucks (I very seldom go to Starbucks). Anyway … I’m writing this tasting note for the box of large tea bags/filters.

The best thing I can say about this tea is that I’m glad I didn’t buy it. It was a box that was sent to me as a gift. I would have been very disappointed if I bought this.

I tried brewing this several different ways. I cold brewed the tea filters overnight. The result was a flat and dull tasting black tea. Maybe I’m spoiled because I’ve been drinking so much of the SBT as of late, but, this is definitely lacking.

I also tried hot brewing the filters … I also resteeped via hot brew the tea filters that I cold-brewed. Nothing that I did produced a pitcher of iced tea that I was happy with, and I just realized that the problem is not with the brewing method but the tea itself.

Put simply, it’s just a very sad, sad tea. This is the kind of tea that gives tea a bad rep.

As I mention in my review of this tea, I realized as I was drinking it why some people don’t like tea. I wouldn’t like tea either if this was what I was drinking. Tazo/Starbucks/Teavana should be ashamed of themselves.

People always tell me they don’t like tea, yet whenever I insist they taste some that I’ve brewed I only hear their surprise. There’s too much icky tea out there that people can get ahold of. :p

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

http://52teas.com

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
