I’ve had this unopened pack sitting around for a year but I’ve been afraid to try it.

My first sip? It started off flat, but near the end I started to get some orange-pekoe goodness. Followed by coffee grounds.

My cup smells like coffee. I didn’t clean out everything at the top so I probably had a few grounds sneak in. My machine is a few years old so I don’t know if the new ones still have that issue. Either way, I’m not going to completely clean this just because I’m switching between coffee and tea insta-drinks.

I’ll probably stick with coffee drinks in this, but I just wanted to try it and log it.

And an evil part of me wanted to add it to our Steepster database! Go ahead! ADD it to your cupboard!!!

(And I do like my Tassimo. I just don’t think it’s suitable for tea. And I can’t drink the chai latte’s anymore because the ‘milk’ tastes so artificial and weird. But the Tim Hortons coffeee… gimme!)

No judgement here! Have a Keurig, which is now mostly only used for hot water, but am with you on the Timmy’s k-cups! mmm!

I find both make everything taste like coffee, whether its hot water or tea or hot chocolate etc.

Cavocorax

Oh, the hot chocolate is really awful too. I guess they include it for mocha’s only because on it’s own it’s so weak and watery.

But the coffee is good. I’m not a coffee person so I like hitting a button and… whammo!

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+)
