On like my third glass of this iced right now. This was a part of the wonderful surprise tea care package that I won from DaisyChubb’s blog summer iced tea swap contest. A quick plug for her blog if you haven’t checked it out yet (DaisyChubb.com), it’s very entertaining, and she posts some really awesome recipes.

I’m going to withhold a ‘real’ review on this one (I know, I’ve been very lax on my reviewings lately). This one came out a little light in the flavor department, but I think we can remedy that if we step up the reactor power input by three more doritos.

However, even with a light flavor, let me say that this thing is delicious. I was hesitant at first because of the apple/carrot beginning… but the flavor comes off as a really, really tasty blend. If I could get juice from my juicer to taste like this, I’d totally go for it. Actually, I might be able to. Hmm… apple carrot watermelon… I think I’m going to try that this weekend.

Another big thank you to Daisy for the tea. I’ll give this a better rating (and a number!) after the next batch.

This one surprised me because of the carrot too. Thought it was going to be a flop but it definitely makes a delicious iced tea!

Bio

My fiancé and I are beginning to enjoy tea infusion, and it’s slowly becoming an interesting hobby that the two of us can share. Maybe not slowly… it’s somewhat amazing how much tea you can buy when everything looks shiny and new.

Tea Rating system:

90 – 100: This is a tea I will always have on hand at work, and at home. I will leave it on altars as offerings of perfection.

80 – 89: This, or one of it’s close cousins, will likely be in my cabinet at home. When this tea runs out, I will buy more. I’ll always wonder if there is something better, but be too afraid to look to stray from home to find it.

70 – 79: Definitely good, but not a clear winner. I enjoy it, I’ll finish it, but I probably won’t buy it again until I’ve exhausted all other versions of this product from any reputable retailer. Though, it may enjoy a resurrection for custom blending.

60 – 69: This tea is okay, but definitely not something I’m going to brew again. I’m going to give what I have left away.

30 – 59: I didn’t finish drinking this tea. I actually poured it out, and went for something else. I’ll still give this tea away, but I’ll do it with a warning and a plead for forgiveness.

0 – 29: This tea is riding securely towards an iceberg at the helm of the failboat. I’ve taken this out of my tea tin, and laid it on a napkin as potpurri. I do not consider it fit for human consumption.
