Last night, I had badly wanted another cup of the Mango Mate, but given the caffeine amount I knew it would be a bad idea. I decided to combine it with the Calypso because I thought it would be a tasty combination. Generally speaking: I enjoy it, gives more mate which strangely seems to be somewhat absent from the Mango Mate, (Or buried, as Teavana seems to prefer doing to most of their teas.) It blunts the curry, which while it didn’t kill my stomach, I think this mixture will work on days where I am more sensitive to spice. Which of course is the downside. If you love spiciness in tea, either don’t get this, or put more Mango Mate then Caribbean Calypso. I’ve yet to try either cold, though with my class starting early in the morning next week for 2 weeks, I think I will be trying both cold, together and separately.

Been a tea lover for most of my life, though it’s only in the past? (5-8 years.) That I’ve been drinking loose leaf tea.

I like mostly blended teas in Black, White, and some Oolong. Sadly not much Green tea that I really like. And of course Herbal.

Rating Guide that I use, though I am not terribly consistent;)

100 Excellent
90-99 Very Good
70-89 Fair
50-69 The only teas that I am interested in in this rating are teas that I can buy locally, such as at a grocery store, fruit market, tea shop, etc. Or is fairly cheap/add on thru a website.
50 and Below No redeeming qualities whatsoever or is too much like a tea that I already have.

Some teas such as Constant Comment by Bigelow I still drink on occasion, it is one of my comfort teas from when I was growing up. Others are Perfect Peach, Mint Medley and Cozy Chamomile.

I am a bookworm, though I also enjoy art journaling/mixed media, making jewelry, spending waaaaaay to much time online…particularly bingeing various tv shows on Netflix and Hulu. Also various forums like this one (On and off.) Quora, Goodreads, Youtube and misc. others. If you see the nicknames Lynxiebrat/Lynxiegrl,Lynxiedove, Zaaron or Sarikcat, then drop me a message:)
