I’ve since amended my ways, but as a six year old fruit loops, particularly the blue variety, were one of my favourite things in the whole wide world. I only encountered them when we stayed in hotels with continental breakfasts- aka, when we stayed overnight at the pit stop, Santa Nella, on our way down to Disneyland.

The smell of this tea brings back memories. Hello fruit loops. Hello Santa Nella. Are we at Disneyland yet? Nope.

The chocolate is a nice touch to the candied blueberry note; I never thought to try fruit loops with chocolate milk! I think there some pop tart undertones here too. Aw.. I haven’t had a pop tart since elementary school.

Quick Summary: the tea has a profile of candied berry fruit, limp chocolate, and malt. Like fruit loops, or pop tarts, there’s something cheap and fun about this tea. It has its own appeal and the ghost candies are cute. This cup is hitting that nostalgic satisfying spot right now.

Thanks for including this as a sample, Della Terra, and also for the speedy delivery! This got here in less than four business days.

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

White teas, roasted/fired green teas, and the not so roasted green oolong varieties are my favourites. I enjoy the odd shu puerh too.

Currently looking for the most buttery and sweet green oolong I can find.

Ingredients/flavours I enjoy (in moderation): anise, butter, caramel, cedar, cream, grapefruit, jasmine, lavender, lemon, lilac, lime, maple, marshmallow leaves, melon, mint, orchid, pine, rice, rose, vanilla.

Ingredients/flavours I tend to dislike: apple, cocoa nibs, licorice, marine, peach, stevia

Subjective Rating System 2.0:

91-100: My absolute favourite tea. Will impulsively buy and hoard like a dragon.

86-90: A favourite tea. May have quality flaws that I choose to ignore.

76-85: A lovely tea, maybe of high quality or masterful blending, but not one I’m likely to order again.

70-75: Enjoyable, but I may have few minor problems with quality, consistency, ingredient chemistry and/or personal preferences.

50-69: Quality, consistency, blending, or personal preference problems are apparent, but I wouldn’t pass up a cup.

11-49: Varying levels of undrinkable tea. I don’t give a lot of these ratings out, since I tend to grab teas I know will appeal to me.

1-10: Nightmare tea from the chaos realms. This is last year’s low-grade bancha mixed with rancid coconut, stale cocoa nibs, over-enthusiastic hibiscus, and stevia sweetener. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t exist.
