828 Tasting Notes


This is my favorite bedtime tea. Whenever I can get a cup in before bed, this is the one I turn to.

I have a canister of this that I’m working my way through. It’s a nice chai alternative.

Always delicious, and no need for sugar. A nice, decadent, afternoon tea.

I had a cup of this with lunch at a local cafe (Simplyummy). It was a decent cup of tea. For local folks, Simplyummy is one of the best places in town to get a cup of tea. The baristas have been trained on how to make a proper cup and they even use timers!

This tea is the one that introduced me to 52 Teas, and that in itself is enough to make me like it. But it’s also a great cuppa that makes my whole office smell nice.

I made this decaf, as I did with Blueberry Bliss earlier this morning.

I first tried this tea when visiting Maine a few years ago. Now it’s one of my staples. It’s a nice taste of spring in the winter, and the perfect cuppa once the temperatures start rising.

One of my favorites. Right now I have a whole pot of it sitting beside me.

I’ve been into tea, at some level, since college with a first tin of loose tea brought back by my parents from Oxford. My love of tea increased with a visit to Boston and a chance cup at Tealuxe. Since then I’ve only gotten more interested in tea and have developed more of an appreciation for it.

70-79: very good, depending on my mood or the season

60-69: wouldn’t actively try to get this tea, but also wouldn’t avoid it in a tea shop or restaurant

50-59: run-of-the-mill tea for me

40-49: decent, would hit the spot in some moods, but probably wouldn’t purchase it for my cupboard
