This was my caffeinated cup of the day. And it was a good cup of tea. I’m looking forward to days where I can have whatever I want. One of my first little projects will be to compare breakfast blends in one sitting. Then I’m going to compare different types of blacks in another sitting. And life will be grand. :) (and it will all be documented on Steepster.)

Cool, I honestly have a hard time telling ‘breakfast’ tea apart unless they happen to be really good or really hideous.

I’ve been into tea, at some level, since college with a first tin of loose tea brought back by my parents from Oxford. My love of tea increased with a visit to Boston and a chance cup at Tealuxe. Since then I’ve only gotten more interested in tea and have developed more of an appreciation for it.

100: a perfect cuppa. these are the teas I’ll keep in my cupboard and tend to be one per type of tea.

90-99: will definitely get more of this tea

80-89: likely to get more and perhaps it will become a favorite with time

70-79: very good, depending on my mood or the season

60-69: wouldn’t actively try to get this tea, but also wouldn’t avoid it in a tea shop or restaurant

50-59: run-of-the-mill tea for me

40-49: decent, would hit the spot in some moods, but probably wouldn’t purchase it for my cupboard

30-39: okay, will try again, maybe

20-29: meh. I’d try this tea again if no other were available

10-19: drinkable, but a forced cup

0-9: didn’t even finish the cup
