I’ve been finishing up a lot of my tea lately in preparation for some new stock. Unfortunately this means that I am out of black teas which I prefer in the morning. I have mate, but I like it with milk which I am out of. So white pineapple coconut it is. Pretty good, but I wish I had something with a bit more of a kick. Perhaps I will break down and have the mate without milk.

Got coffee creamer? That works!:)

Nope I’m out…I have pretty much given up coffee for some reason. It just doesn’t seem appealing to me anymore. And to think that I used to need my coffee to even begin to function in the mornings….tea is just so much more exciting.

I agree… don’t get me wrong, I love my starbucks and fancy creamers but I just need one cup a day then I’m on to tea. I was never an all day coffee drinker, even before tea though. I actually flavor my chais w/ flavored coffee creamer:)

If you end up needing the mate without milk, I suggest trying it iced. The flavor seems to really come out in some mate’s iced, flavors I didn’t enjoy hot. I suppose it depends on the mate though! Hope your new teas come soon!

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
