Thank you Josie Jade for another awesome sample!!

I made this one at work this morning, got distracted while it was steeping and had a very strong cuppa 10 minutes later, haha.

I ended up adding milk to tone it down a bit, which was fine because I’d been thinking I felt like having a plain black tea with milk!

I have enough left to make another cup properly later, as it was I liked that the black base wasn’t weak, (i know, nothing is weak after steeping for 10 min!!) but I could still taste the blueberries. This time around I didn’t get any maple but I suspect that was more due to my screwup than the actual tea :)

I used boiling water as I had no directions but figured that would work for black.

Looking forward to round 2! Withholding my rating for now.

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
