442 tasting notes

My best-tea friend loathes this tea, so I have avoided it for over a year. But, it’s on the wall so try it I am. And E, much as I love you, you’re wrong on this one, it doesn’t suck horridly.

I like orange flavoured teas, and this is definitely a unique flavour. The earthyness of the pu’erh, however, has me unable to decide if I actually like it, or if I just like the notes in it. Even as I write this review and keep sipping trying to figure it out my mind continues to shift. I love the first flirts of orange flavour, and the last, but that middle part I’m still undecided on. This tea is confusing!

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!
