Oh, wow! Another pick from Chapel Hill: this has been on my shopping list since I started seeing the great reviews on this site for it. I also picked up Marco Polo, so it’ll be interesting to see how they compare since so many have noted it.

I wasn’t sure I would love this one. I am not a huge vanilla-in-my-tea fan, and fruitiness depends on the season or flavoring. However, this was the perfect blend. It’s definitely about the tea, but it’s about the lovely flavoring, too. I had it with breakfast, and now I’m looking forward to having a cup on it’s own… it might be too good to have with food!

I’ve been into tea, at some level, since college with a first tin of loose tea brought back by my parents from Oxford. My love of tea increased with a visit to Boston and a chance cup at Tealuxe. Since then I’ve only gotten more interested in tea and have developed more of an appreciation for it.

100: a perfect cuppa. these are the teas I’ll keep in my cupboard and tend to be one per type of tea.

90-99: will definitely get more of this tea

80-89: likely to get more and perhaps it will become a favorite with time

70-79: very good, depending on my mood or the season

60-69: wouldn’t actively try to get this tea, but also wouldn’t avoid it in a tea shop or restaurant

50-59: run-of-the-mill tea for me

40-49: decent, would hit the spot in some moods, but probably wouldn’t purchase it for my cupboard

30-39: okay, will try again, maybe

20-29: meh. I’d try this tea again if no other were available

10-19: drinkable, but a forced cup

0-9: didn’t even finish the cup
