Ok, now that the new-tea buzz has faded, I’m not so in I’ve with this tea. It just seemed like it wasn’t spicy or complex enough.

So far cocoberry and pumpkin chai are my favourites, and I think I might prefer Mulberry Magic over Pistachio Cream. So far.

Do you feel as though you need to double up on leaf for pumpkin chai to taste like pumpkin chai? or do you think it’s fine as is?

I agree with you on Mulberry Magic over Pistachio. Pistachio smells amazing, but tastes a bit blah.

Cavocorax

Keychange- I wonder about that. I enjoy it, but wish it were stronger. I might try steeping it with more leaf so that the milk/cream I add doesn’t wash all the flavour away.

The Pistachio DOES smell so good. Too bad it doesn’t deliver.

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)
