As I’m trying to work through this sampler pack, I decided to have a cup of this with breakfast. And you know what? It’s really good! You can completely pick up on darjeeling, assam, and ceylon, with bit of keemun in there. In fact, the keemun might be the ingredient that sets this apart. I think if I didn’t already love Brattle Street as my go to breakfast cup, I’d put this in the running. As it is, I might one day have to order a tin. Right now I have more breakfast blend than I know what to do with. I’m glad for this pleasant surprise.

Your post has awakened me! I have not been into photography for over a year now… haven’t touched my dSLR and now I felt inspired to take photos again :) Thanks!!!

Great minds…great minds…I just ordered a tin of this this very morning since they’re having the nice discount. I opted for this, the Napalese whatchamacallit, and the Caramel Sugar Oolong. :D

@oOTeaOo: fun, I’m so glad… if you happen to take some tea ones and post them here I can’t wait to see. :)

@Rabs: glad it’s not just me! :) I also love the Caramel Sugar Oolong… so now I’m thinking I should try the Napalese watchamacallit next! :)

Rabs

I’ll keep an eye out for your review for the watchamacallit! ;)

@Rabs: somehow my sampler doesn’t appear to have the Napalese watchamacallit in it!!! I’ve looked through my remaining samples, through my photos of the tea I’ve had, and through my reviews and it’s no where to be found. But now I’m tempted enough to need to try it. I only have to decide if I should get a sample or go ahead and get a full tin.

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
