The last of Bird & Blend’s summer collection. I left this one because I was sure it was the one I’d be least bothered about, but it’s actually really nice. It doesn’t sound exciting – chamomile, apple, rosehip, hibi, valerian, linden, orange peel – just like a run of the mill fruit/herbal blend. The scent is delicious, though, and really reminds me of something – I think maybe it’s Davids Tea Goji Pop, but I can’t remember that one quite clearly enough to say for certain.

The flavour is much, much better than I was expecting. It’s slightly sharp (rather reminiscent of pink grapefruit), slightly tart from the hibiscus, and creamy. It reminds me a little of cream soda, maybe one flavoured with rhubarb or something along those lines. I hesitate to say it’s fruity, but there is a background sour apple kind of thing going on. It’s delicious! I didn’t think I’d want to put this one in lemonade, but I think that’s the next thing I need to try; I have a feeling it might be a beautiful thing!

I love this one, rather unexpectedly. I might even buy more before the summer is over!

I passed over this one too because it seemed pretty basic, but this post has me changing my mind!

Hi :) I’m Sarah, and I live in Norfolk in the UK. My tea obsession began when a friend introduced me to Teapigs a good few years ago now. Since then, I’ve been insatiable. Steepster introduced me to a world of tea I never knew existed, and my goal is now to TRY ALL THE TEAS. Or most of them, anyway.

I still have a deep rooted (and probably life-long) preference for black tea. My all-time favourite is Assam, but Ceylon and Darjeeling also occupy a place in my heart. Flavoured black tea can be a beautiful thing, and I like a good chai latte in the winter.

I also drink a lot of rooibos/honeybush tea, particularly on an evening. Sometimes they’re the best dessert replacements, too. White teas are a staple in summer — their lightness and delicate nature is something I can always appreciate on a hot day.

I’m still warming up to green teas and oolongs. I don’t think they’ll ever be my favourites, with a few rare exceptions, but I don’t hate them anymore. My experience of these teas is still very much a work-in-progress. I’m also beginning to explore pu’erh, both ripened and raw. That’s my latest challenge!

I’m still searching for the perfect fruit tea. One without hibiscus. That actually tastes of fruit.

You’ve probably had enough of me now, so I’m going to shut up. Needless to say, though, I really love tea. Long may the journey continue!

My rating system:

91-100: The Holy Grail. Flawless teas I will never forget.

81-90: Outstanding. Pretty much perfection, and happiness in a cup.

71-80: Amazing. A tea to savour, and one I’ll keep coming back to.

61-70: Very good. The majority of things are as they should be. A pleasing cup.

51-60: Good. Not outstanding, but has merit.

41-50: Average. It’s not horrible, but I’ve definitely had better. There’s probably still something about it I’m not keen on.

31-40: Almost enjoyable, but something about it is not for me.

11-30: Pretty bad. It probably makes me screw my face up when I take a sip, but it’s not completely undrinkable.

0-10: Ugh. No. Never again. To me, undrinkable.
