Second sample from Tea Licious. I must admit first and foremost, I am a big sucker for blueberries. Anything with blueberry is awesome for me, like literally. Blueberry pie, Blueberry smoothies, anything goes really. So going for my samples, I figured I haven’t had any white tea in awhile and BLUEBERRY woooosh, sucked right in. The last and only white tea blueberry i had was the one at Tim’s and i can safely say that tasted like crap and completely artificial.

Smelling this one, better than the tangerine white. I’m glad this tea didn’t turn blue or anything on me and that it was only flavouring inside. It’s a rather mild blueberry taste but it’s great it doesn’t completely overpower the tea. However, it’s rather mundane kinda like it’s there but not really there at all. The white tea quality is pretty average too.
Too be fair though, at this price/quality level is to be expected.

One thing that might come out of this, a somewhat increased interest to find an outstanding blueberry white tea!

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.
