It’s an interesting mash up…I wanted to use the last of the Prairie Berry sample from my pal indigobloom but had, in past, found it to be a little lacking and mild…so I decided to give it a boost by mixing the last of it in with some of the new Organic Berry Good. I used about a tsp of each, though the latter tea was low in pu erh leaf, IMHO.

An interesting mash up…I am definitely getting a tart and juicy feeling on my my tongue, but I am not sure which tea is contributing that. It could be the Saskatoon berries from the Prairie Berry or the hibiscus from the Organic Berry Good. At the same time, there is a smooth tone surrounding that.

I’m not sure I would make this mix again, as this was just a way to use up the Prairie Berry, but it certainly isn’t bad. I’m not sure the various berries merry together perfectly, t be honest, but there are tart elements of both, so they’re not too bad together.

I think the milk and sugar helped contribute to mellow it out a bit.

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are.

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty, and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Uh, guess that’s it.
