drank Green Goji Berry by Yogi Tea
31 tasting notes

I had a couple bags of this at a friend’s house over the weekend. I’ll admit I was first seduced by the pretty box (sigh, it’s a weakness). The tea inside the pretty box was only “meh” unfortunately. I didn’t find it had a whole lot of flavour even though I left the tea bag in the travel mug the entire time I was drinking it. There was just a hint of berry tang/sweetness over the mild green tea flavour and that’s about it. The fact that I added a bit of table cream (craving creamy drinks all weekend, no idea why!) may have been at least partially responsible for the somewhat bland tea. Thankfully (and surprisingly!) there was no bitterness whatsoever, despite the fact that my friend made it with boiling water and the aforementioned oversteeping.

I’d say this is a tea I would drink, but not bother to buy myself.

For anyone who noticed: Yes, I did say I drank this twice, but I feel I can only base my review on the one occasion as the other was rather affected by adding a generous helping of Amarula Cream Liquor. Though that drink deserves a tongue-sticking-out-smiley rating ;).

In hopes of standardizing my ratings a bit more I’ve devised my own scale:

1 – 19: (F-) Ugh. Given to Mr. Sink Drain to enjoy after a couple sips. Never again. Would only give away with a strong warning (or to someone I didn’t like).

20 – 29: (F) Ick. Managed to finish the cup out of stubbornness, but tasted bad the whole time. Will throw out/give away any I have left.

30 – 49: (F+) Meh. I didn’t warrant an “ugh” or “ick” it but I can’t say I enjoyed it. Will throw out/give away any I have left.

40 – 59: (D) Okay. Not a truly bad tea but just personally not my thing. Will (try) to finish but won’t reorder.

60 – 69: © Decent. Drinkable and getting towards good but just falls a little short. Will finish but won’t reorder.

70 – 79: (B) Good. Enjoyed this tea. Will likely reorder at some point but probably won’t be a tea shelf regular.

80 – 89: (B+) Very good. Would definitely put on my “reorder” list when I run out.

90 – 99: (A) YUM! A favourite. Would go on my “pre-order before I run out list” to keep it on hand.

100! (A+) OMG! Mind blowingly-good. The tried-and-true favourites that I MUST ALWAYS HAVE.

With a palate ruined by years of hot-sauce-on-everything, espresso-based lattes and university student cooking I prefer bold teas and often miss nuances unless they are the gustatory equivalent of a two-by four. I don’t enjoy bitterness and love chais.
