I was a bit busy this morning and after my first sip of this forgot about drinking it and it sat for a few hours. The sip or two I had hot was extremely bitter, I probably would have dumped out the cup if I hadn’t forgotten about it. When I got home this afternoon I tried another few sips at room temperature. It wasn’t as bitter as before, but it did have an overwhelming amount of lime flavoring. What was missing was the pie aspect, so I was a little disappointed.

I have an ounce of this so I’m going to play around with a short cold-steep to see if I can cut down on the overwhelming lime flavor.

EDITED This poor cup of tea, it sat undrank and unloved on my table for over 24hrs. I took a sip of it this morning and surprisingly the lime flavor had mellowed even more and I was able to taste some of the cream flavoring.

I am always interested in swapping so if you see anything in my cupboard that you want to try just send me a message. Please keep in mind that I order most of my teas in sample sizes and may not have a lot to swap. I’m also trying to keep my swaps limited to one a month so I don’t break the bank.

My favorite tea companies to order from are American Tea Room, Rishi, TeaVivre, and Single Origin Teas, however I am constantly lured away from my favorites by a good sale.

Ingredients I love in tea
rose, peach, oolong, osmanthus, vanilla, marshmallow root and peppermint

Ingredients I dislike in tea:
spearmint, chocolate, orange, hibiscus, sage and for the most part lemon.

I am a firm believer that sage only belongs in my thanksgiving stuffing/dressing and absolutely not in my tea.

Cinnamon, Chocolate, Burdock Root, and Goji Berries

Rating Guidelines:

100 – 90: Pantry essential and some of my all time favorites that I can’t live without.

89 – 80: You’ll have a pretty good chance of finding this is my pantry on a regular basis, but it isn’t the end of the world if I run out.

79 – 70: I might consider restocking this at some point if the price was right.

69 – 40: Not undrinkable, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again.

39 – 20: What in the world were they thinking? Probably still finished this just because I hate to waste anything.

19 – 0: Wow, that’s so terrible chances are pretty good I dumped it out and gave away the rest.

My current top five favorite teas:

China Black – Rishi Tea
Earl Grey Cream – Zen Tea
Lemoncello – American Tea Room
Nonpareil Anxi Qing Xiang TieGuanYin Oolong – TeaVivre
White Tea Rose Mélange – Rishi Tea
