So I finished my exam today and on my way home I picked up some samples of tea today as a reward to myself =). Starting with this one, after tons of black tea and coffee the last few days I decided to have a cup of this before bed.

Anyways, I love the colour that it makes like a deep pink-red, it smells amazing too like grapefruit actually. It’s very citrus-y and kind of reminds me of pink lemonade but more like grapefruit lemonade. I was scared when i read the ingredients list: carrot flakes, this ruined the Forbidden Fruit for me so i was concerned that it might to the same for this tea, however I never tasted any of it so all good. It tastes just slighty sour but I guess I don’t mind it being that it really reminds me of a real fruit. It’s hard to pick up all the flavours when it is still hot, and I have to say tastes better when it has cooled down. I am sure it will taste better in summer to have it iced. So yea, this one will be a pickup for me I think I’ll get a tin of it… I haven’t tried the goji pop yet, but this appealed to me more, and for now, it has won me over.

One downside, you gotta use more substance like more than normal tea, Apple chunks and stuff, it’s kinda heavy could be a concern cost-wise.

Boiling 5 min, 15 sec

Stopped drinking water, switched to tea. =)
(ok, this is a lie but still :) )

How I rate teas is pretty simple, different teas have different expectations based on quality and price. I’ll rate a tea based on how good it is for its category/price point. I think i rate pretty fairly, I’m not afraid to give a bad score to a bad tea, and it’s relatively hard to get perfect score (partially because i believe there are only so many that can attain such a title)

I like oolong/green teas the most
black, white, tisanes to a lesser part.

I re-steep EVERYTHING, as that’s how I’ve learned from my parents. Blacks teas normally to a max of two times.

I like it when the tea actually looks of quality (eg. whole unbruised leaves). I hate it when i get a tea, and half of it is cut up stems of the plant… give me leaves!

I drink all my teas black and occasionally with sweetener. I do drink coffee too, and love espressos and cappuccinos. Yup, I do my coffee black too. Guess, it is to say I like strong flavours.
My current way of steeping tea, is my french press which i just got a month ago. I love it (well maybe not my cheapy one; looking to get a bodum one day). I used to just dump leaves at the bottom of my cup..

Ok. Rating meanings…

0-49: Various degrees of suck. Either terrible value or just not good.
50-59: It’s drinkable. I’ll finish my cup.
60-69: Not bad… but not good.
70-79: okay to drink, nothing too special, will not be a re-buy.
80-89: Enjoyable cups.
90-99: Worth holding on to.
100: Um.. I’ll tell you when I get here.
