I have been holding onto the last bag of this tea for quite awhile now and while I wish I still had more, I realize that bags don’t last forever so I’m having this to make myself feel better after my White Rose fatiliTEA I experienced a few minutes ago. I brewed this tea up strong in order to add a splash of milk which makes it take like Thin Mint cookies. I really have enjoyed this tea, I’m a bit confused as to why Stash thought an oolong would work in a bag, not even a pyramid bag either. I also don’t get any of the notes that I have come to admire in dark oolongs, it just tastes like a plain black tea base. But that is okay, the tea base is only there to compliment the chocolate mint flavor anyway. Overall, great for a bagged tea. I don’t know if I will buy more, the only place I have seen this variety was at a specialty store and it was 20 bags for $5….a bit pricey for my tastes when you can buy other Stash teas at Walmart for less than $3 per 20 bags. It was good while it lasted though.

Bio

Formally known as mrawlins2

I am a former coffee drinker turned tea lover.

Black tea is probably my favorite type of tea, but I rather enjoy most types… I’m even developing a taste for pu-erh.

Rating Scale:
0-10: This tea is either flavorless or just plain undrinkable. I will avoid these teas in the future.

11-20: I was only able to make it through a few sips before pouring the tea out.

21-30: I may have been able to make it through the first cup but the thought of having another has me cringing.

31-40: Teas in this range are not horrible, but nothing I would seek out in the future.

41-60: Would drink if offered, but would not purchase for myself.

61-70: Okay, nothing special

71-80: Enjoyable, but I have to be in the mood for these. Probably would purchase if I found a really great price.

81-90: Pretty good tea, will probably be one of my favorites.

91-95: These teas are really excellent. I wouldn’t necessarily run out and buy more of these (just because there are so many teas out there that I haven’t tried), but I would miss this tea.

96-99: Terrific, very impressive.

100: This special rating is reserved for teas that are absolutely perfect in my opinion. I will only give out a rating of 100 to one tea per category (Earl Grey, unflavored black, dessert tea, Irish Breakfast, etc). These are teas that I really want to have around.

Perfect Teas so Far:

Earl Grey: Saint Isaac’s Blend (Russian Earl Grey) from Upton

Dessert Tea: Marco Polo from Mariage Freres

Unflavored Black: Emperor’s Red from Premium Steap
