This was not the best tea for me. I really only bought it because I wanted to add something to my order when I did the $1 matchacinno sample and the shipping was $8. I figure I’d get something else to help justify the shipping and that I could share this with the baby. I didn’t realize how strong the hibiscus would be though. We drank some of it iced, but, I just can’t bring myself to finish it.

I had enough left to make 3 cups but I… accidently… threw it out.

I have enough tea to make me happy – I don’t need this one, and the hibiscus makes it unlikely anyone would have swapped for it anyway.

Will do. I don’t mind it in small amounts but this was just tart and awful, and I don’t want to think about it.

But, I’ll keep you in mind if I end up with something else that’s awful.

I actually think hibiscus gives certain teas the right quality. Definitely don’t mind the tartness from it.

OMGsrsly

I’ve done that. :) Cheers to accidentally throwing out teas you don’t like!

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
