442 tasting notes

I grew up in farm country eating fresh honey, so I was really hopeful for this one. Honey flavoured tea? Without adding any sweetener? That would be nectar from the gods!

Sadly the flavour I got from it wasn’t honey. It is sweet, and I didn’t add anything to the tea, but what I got was almost a fake sweet flavour. Like those cheap dollarstore candies that attempt to taste like honey or caramel but instead are slightly off in an undefinable way and leave a weird powdered dry feeling in your mouth. The tea tasted, and acted, just like that for me. Even my cat when she tried to steal a sip of it didn’t like this one. My search for a honey tea continues.

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!
