ETA Courtney Courtney Courtney!! thanks!!! :)
Oh lawdy, I can’t remember who sent me this but I will go back and check. So many samples lately!

Funny, I’m definitely losing my mind. Not sure how I even remembered this much but…. I had cold brewed this the other day, for a long time. It was tasty. But I’ve been cold brewing tons of teas to try and get through a lot of my stash, and as caffeine free options to drink iced now that it’s so warm outside.

I drank this and liked it but for the life of me couldn’t remember what the hell it was! Until I saw the sample bag on the counter and it all came back to me. Oy.

To summarize. It was fruity and potent and delicious as a cold tea. I didn’t use a ton of it, maybe 1.5 tsp in a biggish jar, but left it for like, days, haha. So that worked out.

I will be all set once I can properly thank the lovely swapper who sent it to me!!

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.
