Now it’s my turn for a cold! Since I can barely taste anything I don’t want to “waste” new teas, so I opted for one of my favorite hot teas to enjoy when sick: Crepe Faire. I always score this after the holidays and get a couple bags to last me until the next year. I love the medley of mint and cinnamon. There’s a slight hint of vanilla, more so if you add sweetener (as I almost always add a packet of Splenda). I’ve also made this with fat-free, calorie-free vanilla syrup and it’s divine as well. Makes this cold a bit more tolerable. At least it’s Friday!

And I went the French route: crepe faire = crepes to make! (I’m hungry.)

@teawing – I don’t think I’m allowed to write it on here, but I’m sure it would involve a good time. :D

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.
