Thanks to Teajo for the generous sample!

I don’t normally drink too many black/green tea blends. I’ve found they can be finicky and hard to manage. But, when I got the opportunity to try a tea from Teajo, it jumped out at me so I thought I would give it a go. The tea has a very pleasant smell to it, and you can definitely smell the orange peel.

The brewing parameters are all of over the place for the tea. Apparently you can use anywhere from 180-212 F degree water? That’s a pretty big range. I’ve always been told to brew a blend at the most delicate level – so since greens are more delicate than black, brew it like a green.

Once brewed, this definitely tastes more like a black than a green. I imagine people who are a fan of “breakfast” blends or Assam would be a fan of this as well. It’s not quite as astringent as a breakfast blend would be, which makes it more appealing (I’m such a wimp when it comes to bitterness). The flavors are very light on this.

This is definitely a more unique tea and not bad.

I was like you Rachel I wasn’t very attracted by black/green blends because I found them difficult to brew properly. I found Prince Igor of Mariage Frères and I really changed my mind. I’ll try this one if I can

Hmm.. I’ll have to check that one too. Thanks for the rec.

So the short story is, a few years ago I was VERY MUCH into tea. And then a lot of things happened, and I got out of tea for a while. And now, I’m back.

To me, tea is the missing puzzle piece for my healthy lifestyle. When I drink tea I am encouraged to eat healthy and be active. I drink tea because I simply enjoy the taste, but the health aspects are just an added bonus.

I love all types of teas, although greens and oolongs tend to be my favorite. I also love a good herbal.

Unless otherwise stated, I drink my teas straight. To brew I either use my ingenuiTEA or T-Sac (for teas that don’t expand much). One of these days I might break down and buy a Breville, but I’m trying to resist..

I’m kinda strict when rating my teas. I rarely give a tea above a 95. Teas that I really like I keep in the 95-85 category. I’ve yet to give a tea 100 yet. So, if you see a tea about 95, that means I thought it was an amazing tea!
