The description of this tea seemed like it would be one I would love… well how wrong was I. This tea.. tastes terrible. So disappointed. Tangerines I believed should taste like oranges right? Well it is supposed to taste of tangerines, orange peel, and lemongrass like which is all citrus. I doesn’t taste anything like it, something more of lemon, but herbal and bitter? and gingery? I can’t describe it, but it tastes like medicine. I think those berries inside taste really funky too. Anyways I’m pretty sure this isn’t the best hangover cure, I certainly wouldn’t use it as such! (Drink water and eat some vitamins I would advise, works best I find)

now that you mention it… it does smell a bit like fruit loops, just more herbal. Maybe it’s just me, I’ll try this again another day!

Stopped drinking water, switched to tea. =)
(ok, this is a lie but still :) )

How I rate teas is pretty simple, different teas have different expectations based on quality and price. I’ll rate a tea based on how good it is for its category/price point. I think i rate pretty fairly, I’m not afraid to give a bad score to a bad tea, and it’s relatively hard to get perfect score (partially because i believe there are only so many that can attain such a title)

I like oolong/green teas the most
black, white, tisanes to a lesser part.

I re-steep EVERYTHING, as that’s how I’ve learned from my parents. Blacks teas normally to a max of two times.

I like it when the tea actually looks of quality (eg. whole unbruised leaves). I hate it when i get a tea, and half of it is cut up stems of the plant… give me leaves!

I drink all my teas black and occasionally with sweetener. I do drink coffee too, and love espressos and cappuccinos. Yup, I do my coffee black too. Guess, it is to say I like strong flavours.
My current way of steeping tea, is my french press which i just got a month ago. I love it (well maybe not my cheapy one; looking to get a bodum one day). I used to just dump leaves at the bottom of my cup..

Ok. Rating meanings…

0-49: Various degrees of suck. Either terrible value or just not good.
50-59: It’s drinkable. I’ll finish my cup.
60-69: Not bad… but not good.
70-79: okay to drink, nothing too special, will not be a re-buy.
80-89: Enjoyable cups.
90-99: Worth holding on to.
100: Um.. I’ll tell you when I get here.
