I like this tea a lot. It’s a nice black tea with blueberry flavor. The blueberry goes very well with the tea and it’s not too strong.

I used to be unsure if I liked plain rooibos but now it has become something I like to keep on hand at all times. I like it because it has a very distinct flavour. It’s really different from the camellia sinensis teas, but still very flavourful. It reminds me a little bit of safflower (american “saffron”). The fact that is has no caffeine makes it my go to choice when I want something more robust than an herbal before bed. You can definitely add sugar and/or milk to rooibos, it complements it very well. But my favorite thing to add to it is about half a teaspoon of honey. I find that it makes the whole cup of tea taste like hot milk… or maybe i’m weird :P

The first time I drank this tea, I steeped it for 5 minutes in a mug with boiled water. I didn’t follow the directions that recommend brewing it in a pot on the stove. Infused this way, the only spice I could taste was the cardamom and it wasn’t as spicy as I would like.

Then I tried brewing it the way the company recommends in half water and half milk for 5 minutes on the stove. It’s still not very spicy. This time I can taste other spices than the cardamom, but I was expecting something stronger. It’s good for people who like very mild chaï.

I am disappointed with this one because the description of this tea doesn’t mention that it has a very strong caramel flavour. It almost tastes like dessert and it’s not fruity at all. It wasn’t what I was expecting but if you like caramel it’s like liquid candy.

I like this camomile tea a lot. It has a little honey taste and it’s relaxing.

drank Earl Grey by MysTea

This tea smells strongly of bergamot and it reminds me of men cologne. It doesn’t taste strong but I don’t like it. I can’t stop thinking that I’m drinking perfume. I need to try more Earl Greys to compare.

This chaï has a strong cardamom flavour. The other spices and the vanilla aren’t as perceptible. It’s not spicy enough for me but it tastes ok. One thing I don’t like about it is that the powdered spices all sink to the bottom of the cup even when infused with a very fine strainer.

This tea smells exactly like dashi (fish stock) but it doesn’t taste like it. I’m not sure if I like it or not. The smell doesn’t bother me that much but it tastes very earthy.

This tea smells very fruity, but it doesn’t taste like what you would expect from the smell. I almost can’t taste the fruit, but it’s still a good black tea.

Bio

I started drinking tea only a few years ago and I enjoy it because there are so many different kinds to try. I love to step out of my comfort zone and taste a wide variety of flavours. I am very curious about the different types of tea and how they are processed. I also appreciate traditional or antique teaware.

This is how I rate teas:
100 : Extraordinary delicious
81-99 : Very good, I enjoy it a lot
66-80 : Good, but not in my favorites
51-65 : Ok, not impressed
36-50 :Disappointing but it isn’t bad
16-35 : I don’t enjoy drinking it
0-15 : Absolutely disgusting, I can’t drink it

In addition to being a tea drinker, I am a foodie, a traveler, an historical junkie, a geek that loves to play video games, a bookworm and a cat lover :)

English isn’t my first language so I hope I’m not butchering it too much!
