I’m having a late night cup tonight after finishing up my tea cabinet. I have been meaning to go through everything for a while, to take note of what I have and what I’ve finished. Not too much had changed, but I did have several teas to add and few to take off my list so I’m glad to have finished it.

I mainly chose to have a cup of this green tea because I wanted to snap a picture to add here since I couldn’t find one on Earth Fare’s website. I’ve had this a couple of times before and, as usual, this tea is bitter. I don’t know if it’s something I’m doing or if it’s the tea. Aside from the bitterness, it’s not so bad; it just doesn’t taste at all like the pomegranate it promises. Just as it did in earlier cups, it begins to taste better once it’s started to cool.

I do think this has potential if I could just figure out its secret.

Thanks for the sample of this one. I had the same issue as you!

You’re very welcome though I’m sorry you had trouble with it too. I’ll probably end up cold brewing the rest of mine to see if that helps. It was a pretty big box so I still have quite a few bags left. :)

Bio

Lifetime student. Lover of books and paper and ink. Kitchen dweller. Aspiring herbalist, excessively proud cat lady, and tea fanatic.

I love flavored black teas most of all, always with cream and honey. I prefer to sweeten my tea as it seems to bring out the flavor. I enjoy floral and fruity teas, as well as flavored or scented ones. I’m not overly fond of green or white teas, but I’ve found a few that I enjoy.

Favorites
Any and all black teas, smoky teas, raspberry, strawberry, chocolate, bergamot, chai spices, cinnamon, cream, floral teas, caramel/toffee, jasmine, rose, vanilla, stone fruits, coconut, valerian root

Not a fan
Lime, white teas (someone tell me what I’m doing wrong with these!), most green teas, artificial sweeteners, sarsaparilla, licorice

I’m open to tea swaps! Just reach out if you see something I have that you want to try.

Rating Scale

1-20: By far, one of the worst teas I’ve tasted. I most certainly will not finish my cup and will likely “gift” the rest to my sweet husband who almost always enjoys the teas I dislike (and vice versa).

21-40: This tea is not good but if I mix it with another tea or find another steeping method I might be able to finish it.

41-60: This one is just okay. I might drink it again if someone were to give it to me, but I probably won’t be buying more for myself.

61-75: This is a consistently good tea. It’s reliable but not necessarily special.

76-90: This one is a notch above the rest and I would gladly enjoy a cup of it any day of the week. I’ll likely be keeping this in my cupboard, but it isn’t one of my all-time favorites.

91-95: One small change and this tea would be perfect. I’ll definitely have a stash of this in my kitchen if you come over for tea.

96-100: No words can describe this tea. It’s an experience, an aha moment. Closed eyes, wide smile, encompassing warmth. Absolutely incredible. Perfect.
