I really enjoyed this sample from JoeCool (Nichole) – mainly because I normally cannot eat Key Lime Pie! I love the company name too. ;)

Immediately from the bag I can smell the deliciousness of key lime, a scent that sticks around after it is brewed. In added a Splenda to this one after the first sip wasn’t very flavorful. This is one of those black teas which is enhanced by sweetener. (TeaEqualsBliss I know you are thinking, “No way!”) But the key lime flavor was much more predominant after the sweetener. Or maybe it’s the power of suggestion. (TeaEqualsBliss nods her head, yes.)

That same flavor stays around long enough for me to finish the cup. And for the most part, I enjoyed it. But there is still an aftertaste that reminds me of A1 steak sauce. Stop laughing; I love A1 so I don’t mean it as an insult necessarily. Not quite sure what to make of this one. I’ll try it again in a little bit.

Hello fellow tea fans!
I’ve been a tea enthusiast for years but just recently started brewing my own. I’ve created some blends, and enjoy researching about new teas. I combined my love of tea and writing to create a tea-devoted blog, Keen Tea Thyme. I have been writing for most of my life and am a former journalist with a degree in Communications and Social Psychology, and a minor in Writing. Journalism is in my blood, so that means I’m inquisitive by nature, will double-check sources and/or get a second opinion as needed, but also fair and balanced in my reviews. If my reviews seem more positive, energetic and have high ratings, it’s because I love tea. :)

If you are a tea company, I’d love to review some your tea! Free samples are always welcome so I can fully enjoy the freshest selections. I’m also open to tea swaps as I always have too many teas on hand to drink & would love to share with other tea enthusiasts! :)

My Simple Rating Scale (as of Feb. 2011)
>50: I’m NOT a fan. I could barely finish the cup, if I even did. I wouldn’t even recommend this to my worst enemy. Not worth my time nor yours.

51-65: Good aroma, good flavor. Just nothing pops to give the tea that special kick. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

66-79: Yes, finally, tea – unique flavor profiles, great aroma & flavor. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

80-99: These are cupboard essentials – delicious, aromatic and perfect everyday teas. Re-steepable (beyond at least one steeping). Highly recommended, fun for all ages.

100: These are my favorites, the ones I would take with me if stranded on a desert island. Beyond Highly Recommended.
