Pretty good for a bagged tea. This one has a ton of flavor, and is a good pick-me-up in the evenings on long days (it’s decaf). This stuff was definitely a craving while I was taking my previous class, TOTALLY stressed out the whole time (in my nursing program, we go through one class at a time, obsessively in-depth), I ended up needing this sweet boost some evenings.

Now, this is my daughter’s favorite. When she goes to my tea cupboard and insists “tea, tea!” this is what she wants. I brew this for her for about 6 minutes, but like many tisanes, it doesn’t hurt to be forgotten for a few minutes.

The bags are good for an 8 oz. cup, and a little sugar goes a long way.

First and foremost, I’m a Mommy to my one-and-only daughter. After that, I’m a full-time student-nurse working on degree number two. Then, I’m a wife, a voracious reader, and a newly minted lover of loose-tea.

All my life I’ve enjoyed herbal teas, but am ready and willing to explore other flavors and concepts.

Being a full-time mom and student, the ritual of brewing and enjoying the subtlety of tea is extremely appealing.

I tend to like strong teas: original chais (not boring “masala chai”) are a big deal for me, and I’m hunting for new ones that can accompany my breakfast. I love EGs, especially EGCs, and I hope to find the perfect one some day. Not a huge fan of tisanes or overly fruity teas. I’m starting to love greens and whites, but only if they’re generous enough in the flavor department: no wimps. I’ve got to say, though, I really do not understand pu-erh (yet?).

Outta the park: delicious, amazing, a cupboard staple.

Good tea: not a staple, but would brew and/or buy again if in the mood.

Fair to good: nothing wrong with the tea, but not particularly interesting or not flavored highly enough.

Not good: can probably finish the cup, but may not brew again.

Down the drain.
