Add me to the list of reviewers who were underwhelmed with this one. Sorry Davids, but it didn’t make me love it. And I tried, I did! Like the tea addict I am, I ran to the store the day they came out and this was actually the first one I brewed. I wasn’t turned off by the smell at all, in fact after the brewing I was still excited to try it. I love fig newtons and this was my first fig tea.

Black, yeah, not for me. So I added some brown sugar. It made a big difference and I settled in with my cup to watch some tv. I loved my first third of the cup or so, but as I got in that far I realized that I’d stopped loving it. By halfway through I was actually disliking it. So down the rest went, and the tea was gifted away. Sorry Apres-Ski, but you are so very much not for me, at the chalet or at home.

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!
