This was a gift from Melody over at StarbucksMelody.com. She runs an informative, friendly fan site about Starbucks, if you enjoy Starbucks or coffee it is very much worth checking out!

It turned out more of a medium bodied tea, it really is amazing how time and temperature affect leaves!

It’s no a clean enough finish to earn 4 leaves, but is a very enjoyable and not grassy vegetal tea.

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
