drank Detox by Kusmi Tea
2587 tasting notes

I was craving a lemongrass blend this morning and I still have plenty of this in my cupboard. Not only do I have a box of the muslin bags, I even have a small tin of it that I got with the wellness collection by Kusmi.

I like this blend, but I think I would like it a little bit better without the yerba mate, which gives it a slightly bitter after taste. Also mate gets me kind of wired! I happen to like lemongrass a lot, and a couple drops of stevia made this sweeter. Still, I don’t think I will replenish this once the current supply runs out. At the rate I am going, it will go stale before I run out of it anyway!

I need some pep in my step, because I have to finish a paper and I have a grammar mid term this evening. I’ll have to stop goofing around on Steepster for now. Wish me luck!

Have you tried BB Detox? I think I like it more.

Marzipan – not an English major. Just taking an adult education class.

boychik – Haven’t tried the BB yet

It has nice juicy grapefruit notes. Good chilled, nice for summer time

TeaBrat

It does sound nice, but seems like the combination of mate and guarana would be very stimulating!

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
