Had this one this morning to kick me in the pants. I was groggy and out of it and knew that a standard tea cup wasn’t going to do it. So, mate to the rescue! The high did the trick, and lasted until about 3:30, when I was stuck in a meeting of dooooooom. Flavour wise it isn’t anything extraordinary, but I do enjoy it, and it does the trick when I need a kick!

I’m sitting sipping a creme brulee that I added cocoa powder to right now! I love mixing and blending and trying out new things!

Bio

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
