I wanted to hate this one. It has so many notes in it I can’t stand, but I got it as a sample with a mail order and so I gave it a go tonight.

Am kind of glad I did. The lemongrass completely dominates this tea, which I’m happy about since that’s one of the few notes I really do like in the blend. There is a hint of pepper or ginger to it, which reminds me of Lime Fizz from The Tea Haus, one of my favourite herbals. As the cup cooled the notes remained consistent, with a strong lemon flavour with just a hint of something more.

I don’t see myself reaching for this one off the teawall, but I also won’t say no if I’m offered a cup!

I wanted to hate this one too, but I was fairly surprised :) This one is quite delicious!

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!
