More and more I’m becoming a big fan of oolongs. They surprised me since I hadn’t really had many, but the more I try, the more I am definitely willing to try more. If anything, I’m finding I prefer the straight oolongs to the flavoured, something that is extremely rare for me in teas. So long live the oolongs, as they have captured this tea drinker’s heart.

This one was delightful on first sip. I totally could have sat and drank the entire cup without adding anything, but just to try it I tossed in a bit of sugar. It totally changed the flavour, to something equally delightful. Unfortunately, horrible creature that I am, I fell asleep halfway through the cup. Lazy Saturdays are great until they become too lazy!!

I woke up a couple hours later to an extremely cold cup of tea, but instinctively I grabbed and sipped. And wow, even hours later and ice cold it was lovely! Definitely getting more of this one!

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!
