This morning, I was looking for simplicity since it’s Monday and that usually means errands. So I reached for a teabag, and this is the tea that I grabbed.

As a tea purveyor, I have had a lot of tasting experience with Metropolitan Teas. They were one of the first big wholesale companies I encountered when I first started out. Some of their teas are very good, others, mediocre. I guess it could be argued that it is that way with all tea companies, though, since every tea tastes different to every individual palate, and what is good for me may not be good to you.

Anyways, I received this tea in a swap a while ago. I had tried their ice wine tea years ago, but not one that I wanted to sell since I wasn’t interested in teas flavored by other companies.

It is a good tea. I like the wine-like quality of it, it seems to capture the taste of sweet wine well. It has a nice, fruity flavor to it. The Ceylon black tea base is mild, although that is not uncommon for Ceylon tea.

Even though it tastes good, I find myself missing my usual “breakfast blend” this morning, so I have chosen not to rate this one with a numeric rating today. I don’t think it would be fair.

I’ve enjoyed this one before…I have to swing by the shop that carries this brand and try some of the others ones, too! Thanks for the reminder!

I love, love, love this one! I do most of my tea ordering in the fall in prep for cold weather, and I have never had the self control not to snarf it up immediately … so I’ve never had any during warm season to ice down. But I think the grape-ity-ness would be great cold.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

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.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
