Yay! Now that the spring teas are out, it’s getting ever closer to summer teas, which just might bring us closer to…more mojito! I really hope it comes back, or at least a very similarly delicious cousin does. The spring focus on coconut was a big turn-off for me, and I hope they leave that behind for this year’s summer blends.

I’m enjoying a nice steaming mug of mojito (with my standard extra dash of spearmint)…in my new perfect tea mug! The beau caught on! : ) He got me the blue spring one with the pretty birds on it, and it adds a lovely dash of style and convenience to my tea drinking habits. Who doesn’t love to drink the taste of summer out of the beauty of spring? David’s Tea, you really know the way to this girl’s heart! I think my current favourite aspect of this mug, style aside, is that it holds nearly as much as my travel mug, but allows for very precise steeping…and soon enough, re-steeping!

As for the tea: there’s nothing new to say. Creamy limey vanillay minty flavour, super delicious. Never gets bitter, never needs sweetener and always lives up to my expectations.

Bio

I am a lover of many things, but my passions include my records, tea and books (not necessarily in that order!) I embrace local food and good cooking as much as I can, and place great value on time with family and enjoying the bounty of nature. As of January 2014 my husband and I finally moved to the country to be closer to family and continue our journey in a family home. We have been wanting to do this for a couple years, so we are very excited to follow our hearts. We also have a wonderful kitty named Emma that is the princess of the house.

I am drawn toward good Chinese blacks, enjoy some herbals and the odd roasted oolong. Greens and whites can make me nauseous, but I will have flavoured ones on occasion. While I don’t yet adore puerh, I am giving it my best effort. Chamomile and coconut are the devil though, I wish they didn’t exist. Mint has been a particular favourite of mine since childhood, and I enjoy both flavoured and pure teas though unflavoured blacks are tops for me.

As for 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: WOW. This is the cream of the crop.
71 – 80: This is a solid tea. I enjoy it, and would recommend it to others, but may not repurchase.
61 – 70: Just okay. I can drink it, but it doesn’t stand out to me. May try again to improve.
41 – 60: Bleh. Might finish it, but it’s not to my taste OR just doesn’t impress me at all.
0 – 40: No thank you, please. Take it away and don’t make me finish the cup.
