Totally stole some of this one from Indigobloom to compare to the one I already had in my cupboard. Despite what the directions on the package said I used a full teaspoon since I had a big cup to fill. In the true style I added some sugar and off I went with my tea to work.

Hot, this tea is nice. The mint is strong but not overpowering, allowing the tea flavour to shine by its side. I found that it was slightly dry, a note that was emphasised the more the cup cooled down. By the time my tea had cooled completely I found that I wasn’t enjoying this quite as much. It is definitely a nice tea, but one that really needs to be enjoyed while still hot.

I so agree, this one loses all appeal for me when it’s cooled. but when hot, it has my heart :P

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!
