I received this sample with my catalogue in the mail today. I figured I may as well try it for my afternoon tea.

The bag smells nice, very inviting. It has a good balance between the orange and cranberry. I boiled my water and let it steep for 4 minutes. I can still smell the cranberry and orange but it now smells medicinal, like warm cough syrup. I added my customary splash of milk. It tastes alright but does have a bit of medicinal taste.

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.
