I needed something to wake me up quickly this morning – something to punch me in the face without the usual swollen eye or bloody nose you’d expect … so I turned to this tea. I think I’m lucky in the fact that my pouch doesn’t seem to have a lot of cayenne, but just enough so you know it is there. I probably couldn’t handle more than this anyway. This is quite enjoyable, but I’m starting to wonder if even the small amount of cayenne was smart to have on an empty stomach…..

Haha funny you mention “to wake me up quickly”… I’ve had several pouches of this, but this one seems to have a lot more cayenne than normal- or at least the top since I just opened it. I had it before bed the other nite and it was almost too much cayenne even for me- and that’s saying an awful lot. And it woke me up- like almost on the verge of being hyper. It was funny =D

Yea – now I’m feeling caffeinated without energy so I’m just sort of quietly wired and edgy….

Haha the caffeine never hit me- it was all the cayenne.

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
