My staple. It’s my first day back at work after being out for surgery and there is too much BS going on… thank goodness for this spicy wonder… and my painkillers. (Please see other tasting notes.)

The Purrfect Cup

Hope you are feeling better! As I said in one of my comments on an earlier logging of yours I got a sample of this with an order today…if the BS continues here today I might dig into it!

Do you sweeten it? Friend gave me some along with some rock sugar, but I’m drinking mine straight up this morning.

@Wifey_Woman: thank you, I am!! I definitely recommend it – it’s a great antidote to BS. :)
@gmathis: I usually do sweeten with Splenda, although I have brewed up a whole pot with rock sugar and enjoyed it. But today it was straight up, like you. :) YUM! I love all the spices!

I’m not much of a chai lover, but this one is definitely nice.

Bio

Hello fellow tea fans!
I’ve been a tea enthusiast for years but just recently started brewing my own. I’ve created some blends, and enjoy researching about new teas. I combined my love of tea and writing to create a tea-devoted blog, Keen Tea Thyme. I have been writing for most of my life and am a former journalist with a degree in Communications and Social Psychology, and a minor in Writing. Journalism is in my blood, so that means I’m inquisitive by nature, will double-check sources and/or get a second opinion as needed, but also fair and balanced in my reviews. If my reviews seem more positive, energetic and have high ratings, it’s because I love tea. :)

If you are a tea company, I’d love to review some your tea! Free samples are always welcome so I can fully enjoy the freshest selections. I’m also open to tea swaps as I always have too many teas on hand to drink & would love to share with other tea enthusiasts! :)

My Simple Rating Scale (as of Feb. 2011)
>50: I’m NOT a fan. I could barely finish the cup, if I even did. I wouldn’t even recommend this to my worst enemy. Not worth my time nor yours.

51-65: Good aroma, good flavor. Just nothing pops to give the tea that special kick. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

66-79: Yes, finally, tea – unique flavor profiles, great aroma & flavor. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

80-99: These are cupboard essentials – delicious, aromatic and perfect everyday teas. Re-steepable (beyond at least one steeping). Highly recommended, fun for all ages.

100: These are my favorites, the ones I would take with me if stranded on a desert island. Beyond Highly Recommended.
