251 tasting notes

Puling this out of the box yesterday, I knew I remembered this tea but couldn’t have told you where. I looked through my spreadsheet and I didn’t have any on hand, which seemed odd, so I went back here and – ah. I drank it and hated it.

But it smells incredible! Bright and fruity, tart, and a gorgeous purple too. The last time I’d tried it I went iced, so it had to be better hot, right?

Absolutely not. Like, I adjusted my rating down from “I hated this” to “I really hated this”. I get nothing but a cloying and artificial sweetness. I stand by my comment that it’s like someone at the Starbucks went all-in on the added sweetener. No thanks.

Bio

College instructor, mom of 2, and general homebody in California.

Great at buying tea, good at drinking tea, bad at timely reviews. Drawn to fruit, floral, spice, smoke, and flavored teas in general; prefer those that stand well without milk or sweetener. Black is fine, green is better, and red rooibos is trash.

I aim to rate when I finish a package or a complete sipdown, except in advent season.

My ratings are for me, so I don’t accidentally buy something that sounds amazing but I’ve already tried and disliked. I struggle a bit with wanting to be “fair” to a tea that other people would probably like, but then my system won’t work!

90-100 A: loved it; would make this a permanent member of my stash
80-89 B: tasty; would pick it up again
70-79 C: good; could grab with a good deal or to try in a different style
60-69 D: okay; would keep in a set but probably would not repurchase on its own
1-59 F: various shades of bad; would not purchase; closer to 1 means may not even drink again if offered.
