D’oh! Sorry for the unfinishable cup :(

yeah, I hate that tea! You got farther than I did. But it’s for those who like Ayruvedic teas.

I think Rabs bought a sample of this tea, and I was pretty sure she wasn’t going to like it, so I also sent her a free sample of a Sleepy Time to compensate.

whew ok i’m not the only one-I figure it was worth a go since i’m always stressed…lemongrass bleh!

Rabs

Ruh roh — this is one I added to round out my order to get free shipping. I waffled about adding it but then there were so many things in it that I’ve never had before (at least as a drink) that curiosity got the better of me. Daniel — thank you so much for the free sample! :)

AmazonV

well Rabs, like thai food?

Rabs

Lol — well, the few times I’ve had thai food it’s been fine, but I don’t think I’ve ever gone out of my way to have any. At least I’ll finally get to do a negative GTC review — I’ll be gentle. ;)

Hehe, I love Thai food. Pad Thai is the best!!

Don’t worry about the reviews. AmazonV is killing me!! haha kidding. The thing about owning a tea company is having variety. I can admit there are many teas I have that I would never personally drink, some like Stress Reliever that I can’t even stand to bag but you never know when you’ll have a customer who loves medicinal herbal-y teas and will just LOVE it. I personally hate Black Currant, then I have customers who ONLY buy my Black Currant telling me it’s the best they’ve had. I think experimenting to find what we like and what we don’t like is half the fun of drinking gourmet tea. The average person goes threw their life eating many different types of food and yet we tend to stick to only a few types of drinks. It’s nice when entering the world of tea to know that there are over 30,000 different types of tea and you could have a different one for every different meal you eat! I love the reviews, they are honest and I take them all to heart.

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).

~~~~~~~~*~
0-25=Bleh! not again if it were free
25-50=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
