Damn I wish I’d watched this one brew. Most of my blacks barely unfurl and so I don’t think anything of just stepping away until the timer goes. But this one opened like a green or a white. Definitely going to watch next time.

Scent wise it is fairly standard to me, and when I sipped it black I felt it was a little weak. (I prefer my blacks to be pretty strong). I added a wee bit of sugar, though, and suddenly it had more flavour, and the honey notes were very present. I am really enjoying this, and am wondering how it’ll taste if I blend it with some Kenyan Tinderet next time.

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!
