I got this as a sample to try and… it’s just not my thing. A light, herby green tea by taste. The brewing instructions speak to the magic – a change in color – but…. I just prefer my tea to taste stronger.

A fairly straightforward and simple breakfast tea – which is fine with me: it does its job early in the morning to wake me up and ease me into the day.

A perfect choice today while I played my board game: Ceylon (about the beginning of the tea plantations there).

Adequate – it was robust enough and flavorful, but not special or outstanding.

A bit thin, I had to overbrew it to even really taste the leaves. Nothing offputting, but nothing really to the taste either. A bit disappointing.

Most Enjoys:
A strong black tea, preferably from Sri Lanka or India. I tend to steep it a little over to get just a touch of bitterness, which I enjoy.

My Ratings:
100-90: One of my favorites, a tea that stopped me from doing whatever I was doing, to just enjoy its flavor.
89-80: I would buy again, I enjoy, but one that I can have while rushing around or reading or internet browsing – my standard breakfast teas probably fall in this range. I very much enjoy them.
79-70: An good tea. It’s pleasing in some way and I may buy it again but I wouldn’t go out of my way to make sure I have it in stock.
69-60: A tea I enjoyed, but nothing really stood out to me.
59-50: Better than average, but nothing that delighted or pleased me. It was fine.
49-1: Varying degrees of I didn’t enjoy this tea. The lower the rating goes, the more there was at least one element that I actively did not like.
