I have finally moved on to loose leaf tea. I received this tea as a gift and steeped it in my new ForLife Curve teapot.

My first impression right from the package was that it smelled amazing. I mostly smelled the cinnamon but could pick up a bit of nutmeg since I read the ingredients and knew it would be in there. There does appear to be quite a but of sugar in it, but it’s hard for me to tell exactly what is sugar and what are bits of fruit.

Upon taking my first sip I fell in love. I didn’t add any milk or honey, which I customarily do with bagged teas, because I wanted to taste it alone first. It’s a good thing that I like my tea sweet, there is more than enough sugar in this tea! This makes a wonderful dessert tea for me!

Bio

I don’t know a whole lot about tea, but want to explore it more and remember the journey!

I am a 30-something year old wife and stay-at-home-mother of one. When I have time to myself I enjoy tv, classical music, reading, knitting, and math puzzles. But mostly I spend my time playing play doh and dollhouse, coloring, and creating with Legos.

I’m trying to figure out the best system for rating each tea. Unfortunately it’s not easy to pick out an exact number on my iPad (which is what I use most frequently), so my ratings must be in a range.

0-20: This was terrible, my husband can drink the rest.
21-45: This tea was drinkable.
46-70: I enjoyed this but not enough to purchase again.
71-99: I enjoyed this and would buy it again.
100: One of my favorites; it will always be in my cupboard.
