Disclaimer here, I’m not a coffee drinker. At all. The closest I come are iced capps from Tim Hortons, which, they’re more sugar than coffee. A coworker though had told me she got more a caramel flavour than anything else so I decided to give it a go.

Nope, to me it is totally coffee. I got worried when I saw how dark it steeped, it was darker than coffee itself, unless you have a good dark roasted kind. My first sip I tried black, and okay, I didn’t spit it out, but also knew I’d never finish the cup this way. So I added sugar. This brought out the caramel my coworker had told me about, but nope, still not one for me. So I added a small bit of milk. Still too coffee. I added more milk. Finally, when the almost black drink was now more resembling the colour of milk chocolate, I could drink it. And here I was getting vanilla more than caramel, but definitely still coffee.

I think this one is going to a friend or my mom, who is starting to discover that teas really are just as good or better than her daily caffeine provider.

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!
