had another cup of this today, but am thinking I should try it iced based on the reviews!

drank Cinnamon by Adagio Teas

backlogging. I blended this with their vanilla and caramel and the cinnamon was the most overpowering so I’m logging the blend this way. Not a bad cup. Perhaps if it had been a 40-40-20 split the others might have stood out more….

drank Green Tea by Salada

backlogging. Had three cups of this at my grandma-in-law’s over the weekend. I’m always surprised by this tea when she serves it. I don’t expect much but then really enjoy the cup!


My M-I-L, who is NOT a tea person at all, does a cup of green tea in the mornings, and went on and on about how good this was (stocking stuffer last Christmas … and probably now this Christmas too!)


For bagged tea, I quite enjoy Salada’s offerings.


I’m surprised on how drinkable this is too! Even the decaf version!


I’m glad I’m not alone on this one!! :)

I got this one from the Traveling Tea Box. It was a good basic oolong. I’d say kindof bakey and kindof roasted. Not necessarily something I’d seek out in an oolong, but a good cuppa (or three resteeps :) ).

I had some of this over the weekend with soymilk. There was a bit of pepper or something that really kicked the back of my throat. I actually didn’t enjoy this one too much until I added a few packets of sugar, which isn’t a great sign for me.

And thus I’ve nearly worked my way through the teas available at my neighborhood coffee shop. I think I’m going to mostly stick with the darjeeling.

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
