This really is an amazing tea! After a long day, to settle down with this tea is the perfect way to end the day. Great complex tastes and aromas really transform in different brewing methods. This is what a good tea is about!

and the last time….

“I’ve debated a long time about writing this review. I got sent these teas by DCS, because they weren’t to her liking, and I then passed it on as it wasn’t to my liking. This is perhaps the best thing about Steepster. The community.

So, 10 is the grade I would rank for standard tea bag tea. I would rank this tea below that. Probably around a 11. I’m holding off on ranking as I would like to see some more reviews of this tea before I leave such a drastic mark."

I’m just going to copy and paste, as pretty much my review would be the same throughout.

Not worth the price they are charging, this is a perfectly fine FF darjeeling, just lacks really distinction.

Really vegetal…and fishy. I feel like I’m eating the seaweed wraps off of sushi.

blah blah blah, come on people, not every tea can be ranked 80+. Rant, rave; but honestly not every tea you drink can be ranked the same, otherwise you defeat the point of giving the grade!

So as other people have broken down their ranking systems, I am doing the same.

90-100 = I’m quite happy to buy again
70-89 = Acceptable representation
50-69 = Wouldn’t order again
20-49 = Meh
10-19 = Average tea bag ranking
0-9 = Needed to brush my teeth immediately
