Sipdown, 145. I had two sample sachets of this one, one that came in the monthly newsletter and one that came with my handy cooler. For some reason I thought this would be a green tea (not paying attention), but no, it was a black. I cold steeped them both in my new handy cooler; two sachets and 500ml of water worked out well.

I think I was never initially interested in this because of the papaya. I am of the opinion that fresh very ripe papaya smells like feet (I’ve had to deal with them lots in East Africa and Madagascar) so I typically avoid papaya anything. But I do like guava, and fortunately this doesn’t taste like feet. It’s actually quite delicious, and I would consider buying more of it for iced tea. The guava is very tasty and the other flavors just make it nicely tropical. Glad I got a sample of this one to try out!

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
