I think I suffered the same problem today with this tea as I did yesterday…I did rinse out my Timolino more, but I still got a very minor flavour with this. It was sweet, but that’s as much as I could perceive. I can’t really describe what I tasted aside from sweet. I know that it has been reformulated, but I don’t know which batch my sample came from. I think this is another one I will have to try again to drink out of my mug instead of Timolino.

This one is from CrowKettle, from our recent tea crawl and swap.

This one is from after Christmas but it has suffered some exposure and isn’t the strongest tea to begin with. It was the last of my bag!

Amariel

Ok, I will try it again, because I want to catch that flavour.

Kittenna

Reformulated?

Amariel

Yeah, I’m not sure where I read it, but somewhere it said this tea had been reformulated…I thought.

Kittenna

Hmm, possible. I have a pouch that should have been from the original batch, and also half a pouch from the Christmas re-blend. I should check.

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.
