I was very excited to find this tea. Temi being one of the first tea estates in Sikkim, was started by an estate from Darjeeling. While being on the border between the two provinces, Temi offers hope to bring prestige to this region.

To be completely honest I was a little disappointed in the tea. It tasted flat, and maybe a little bit stale. One can detect a slight hint of muscatel, which isn’t surprising considering its location in the Himalaya mountains, but it means that either Temi hasn’t quite got their manufacture under control or Palais des Thes needs to move their stock quicker.

blah blah blah, come on people, not every tea can be ranked 80+. Rant, rave; but honestly not every tea you drink can be ranked the same, otherwise you defeat the point of giving the grade!

So as other people have broken down their ranking systems, I am doing the same.

I’ve also decided to update my reviewing system. I’m going to be ranking across a 3 system scale on: taste, accurate representation, and price.

Taste = 0-100 (see old ranking)
Accurate Representation = 75 being average (how true it is to its style of production. So a Darjeeling that tastes like an Assam would rank lower)
Price = Percent difference of what I think the tea is worth


Old Ranking
90-100 = I’m quite happy to buy again
70-89 = Acceptable representation
50-69 = Wouldn’t order again
20-49 = Meh
10-19 = Average tea bag ranking
0-9 = Needed to brush my teeth immediately
