Another favourite! Just like the doctor, all I needed was a good cup of tea – and Zing Me was the one for me this morning! Wakes you up with a lovely ginger/apricot mix, with the strength of the flavours depending of course on how much tea is used and how long it’s steeped. This tea will definitely be re-bought if I can ever bring myself to use what I have left…I tend to hoard my favourites, rather than gulp them down.

I’m the same way with my favorites, I have a box above my cupboard that I put all my treasured tea in…I really should drink them more!

But if you drink them all, then they’ll be gone! I know that’s the point, but it seems every time I finish a favourite, it’s gone out of stock in my area or altogether.

Me four! If a tea is good, my initial reaction is to hoard it and save it and growl at the wife if she goes near it…and then I can’t bring myself to use it, it’s too good! There never seems to be an occasion worthy of it ;).

Bio

I’ve been drinking loose tea since 2010 and my tastes have changed a lot over those years. For the last few, I’ve been a fan of unflavoured Chinese blacks and shu puerh. I still drink other things, but that’s where I am.

I live in a rural area with my husband, cat, and soon to be firstborn. I love tea, reading, doctor who, knitting, crosswords, board games, the marvel universe, and lots of other things.

I’m not often rating teas numerically any more but I want to leave this to explain my past ratings:
I try to only log teas once or twice because I drink a lot of the same ones repeatedly. My rating is based on my perception of the tea at first tasting and is adjusted if anything notable occurs in subsequent cups. I may also factor in the price and customer service but try to note that when I can.

81 – 100: These are great teas, I love them, regularly stock them or savour them as unique treats.
71 – 80: These are solid. I drink them, I like them, I may or may not keep them on hand regularly. This is still good stuff.
61 – 70: Just okay. I can drink it, but it doesn’t stand out to me. Might be lower quality, not to my taste, or outside my comfort zone.
41 – 60: Not likely to keep drinking…hoping hubby will enjoy!
0 – 40: No thank you, please. Take it away and don’t make me finish the cup.
