All of these lovely teas I got from The Green Tea House are from a friend who lives in the local area of the store. She offered to grab me some I was interested in when she sent me a couple of her favourites, so of course I excitedly chose some. Because I’ve had mostly bad experiences with pu’erh, I thought this was a great time to try one from a place that I wouldn’t normally have access to, and that seemed to have good ingredients.

As a pu’erh, this is probably a decent starter tea to try it. I say that because I didn’t notice until after I brewed it, but it’s half green leaves. Because of this I didn’t notice much of any of the usual pu’erh characteristics, good or bad. There was a bit more earthiness and body to the tea than there would have been if it was purely green, but I definitely felt like this fits more into a green family.

Tastewise there are raspberry notes, most definitely, however they seem fairly generic, even once the cup is cold and drank as an iced. Overall it isn’t a bad tea, but there was nothing about it to make it stand out for me, either.

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.


My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
