drank Honeysuckle White Tea by Inko's
403 tasting notes

I ADORE this tea. It’s like drinking honeysuckle nectar. I can’t say much about the taste of the white tea itself, because I never notice it; the white tea is a vehicle for the honeysuckle. This is deliciously flavored, naturally sweet from the honeysuckle and white tea, with no sugar (and no fake sugar!) added. I love it. I would drink it all the time if it didn’t cost $1.5-2 per bottle.

OK… this sounds like something I would LOVE! I will have to keep an eye out for it.

It looks like Inko’s is New Jersey based, but I’ve found their teas at several stores in NY and MA (Whole Foods, most recently) and it looks like they take requests on their website for distribution/retail locations.

I think I’ve seen it at our local Whole Foods as well. So I will have to keep an eye out for the Honeysuckle. It sounds very tempting to me. I have a great fondness for Honeysuckle anyway, it reminds me of my gramma’s house. The room I would stay in when I visited her, there was a honeysuckle vine just outside the window and so the room always smelled of beautiful honeysuckle.

Some notes on ratings:

I’d have separate rating scales for tea types if that were possible (probably Black, Flavored Black, Darjeeling/Dark Oolong, White/Green/Light Oolong, and Herbal) because the flavors and quality markers are just too different. A flavored black rated 100 isn’t better than every oolong I’ve ever drunk, just delicious for a flavored black.

Ratings are a combination of my enjoyment and the perceived quality – I do often demote teas a few points for artificial flavorings, small quantity of steeps supported, or weakness of flavor (requiring extra leaf).

I pay less attention to the number than the order of my ratings; I don’t necessarily keep a stock of everything rated 80+, but if two breakfast blends are rated 82 and 84 I consistently enjoy the 84 more.

And in case it’s not obvious? I am not an expert. I don’t even know what I like until I taste it sometimes, but I’m ok with that :) I like learning to like new teas, as well as enjoying the comfort of familiar ones.
