Why oh why does this one have LICORICE in it? Blech! Dumped it in the sink after the first few sips. I only got 12g of this, so I’m not sure whether to return/exchange or to just give away…

Another one bites the dust. TWO FAILS so far. Maybe Spiced Fig won’t disappoint.

return it is my vote, otherwise the company won’t change the blend. i got a very interesting piece of advice from a store manager years ago: money = a vote. withold it or take it back and a company pays attention. i have observed this to be true!

It’ll have to wait til I am back from vacation, at which point, might be too late. I might just offload on a friend, but voice my dislike in person.

JustJames

i am crossing fingers for you!

Amariel

There’s plenty else I’d apply it to, but I also dislike Coffee Cake…it sounds bad to bring both back. Even if there is a small amount.

Amariel

But I’ll see what I can do…unless my friend wants it.

Yikes. I really disliked Spiced Fig myself – it just tasted like water with a touch of flavoring. Having said that, I only got a sample with my order last week, and it really wasn’t enough for a cup.

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.
