No sir. I don’t like it. Well….I don’t hate it. It’s alright, but I think it is a bit floral for me. I’m having a little deja vu with The Earl’s Garden, though not as much with this tea. I could conceivable finish my 15g bag, but I won’t be re-steeping unless I am making an iced tea. I might swap it with something else. I am gonna see how the Cranberry Pear is and decide. I might mix the two. I think I will like that better. I tried this black, but then added milk and sugar, and that is a help.

AH, now that you mention a slight resemblance with Earl’s Garden I can definitely see it. I have to say though – Cranbeyy Pear is absolutely delicious, by far my favourite of the three new additions! Hope you enjoy it!

I admit I’m a bit dubious about the Cranberry Pear, as I’m not fond of cranberry, but I did get a small amount to try as well. Maybe I’ll give that one a go today.

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.
