drank Mojito Marmalade by Tea Forte
20 tasting notes

I tried this tea as part of the Tea Forte Herbal Retreat Single Steeps Sampler. The aroma of tea was very spearminty (which I appreciate, I love spearmint, but not a big peppermint fan – weird I know) with a back note of sweet orange. I was enthralled by the aroma!

Upon tasting, the tea was much more minty than I thought it would be – I thought that the orange flavour would come through a bit more after steeping. That being said, as I drank the cup, the tea grew on me more and more and I found myself really enjoying the cup. I would have liked a bit more orange flavour, but overall it was a really good herbal tea – perfect for relaxing after a long day. I’ll most likely purchase this for my tea cupboard in the future but it won’t be a daily tea for me.

I know this is an old review, but I had to comment that I don’t think it’s odd that you like spearmint, but not peppermint. Me too! Peppermint is strong, spicy (thus he “pepper”?), and has a hash bite. Spearmint is mild, smooth, and sweet. What’s not to love?! :)

Bio

I’m Meg, I’ve been a tea drinker most of my life, but for the last 5 years it’s become a hobby and bit of an obsession. I’m a stay-at-home mom with a degree in Anthropological Archaeology and love to cook, bake, read and watch classic movies. I have converted my husband from coffee to tea, though we do have very different tastes.

My tastes in tea tend to be similar to my tastes in books and music – all over the place. I love the classics, like a beautiful darjeeling, but I also love playful, more flavourful teas as well. I drink pretty much anything black, green, rooibos, herbal, plain, flavoured, loose leaf, bagged tea, iced or hot. I’m a new mom, so my ratings tend to be whenever I can get the time to post.

Favourite tea of the moment: Peche Mignon, THE O DOR (beautiful iced or hot)

My rating system (first attempt, so there may be later revisions):


0-25:
 Horrible. Won’t be drinking this again – ever. Dumped out the rest of the cup/pot.

26-50: Definitely not something I’d buy again, but I might finish the stash (unless it’s a large amount or particularly bad). A one or couple of redeeming factors, but overall not a great tea.

51-75:
 A drinkable tea, but unfortunately has one (or more) large flaws that will keep it from being a tea that stays in my cupboard. May need doctoring with (gasp) sugar, lemon or cream. I will finish the amount I have, but not purchase again.

76-85:
 A great everyday tea and will probably stock it in my cupboard for daily drinking if it’s not too expensive.

86-90: Teas that I really enjoy, stock in my cupboard and drink often.

91-100: These are the ones that remind me why I love tea and am proud to be a tea drinker. Reserved for my favourite teas that I always keep stocked and/or teas that I save for special occasions.
