When my husband brought this home for me a few months ago, I was completely skeptical. Sometimes I wonder if he’ll ever understand that I like tea, but not every bagged tea is worth bringing home. Luckily, he did a pretty good job getting this one. It is surprisingly light, not bitter, and tasty. The addition of stevia, which I’m usually not a fan of, really helps this tea to be just right without anything else. I didn’t think I would drink it often, but I realized tonight that I’m down to only one more bag. I may just have to restock this – I love easy options after a long day dealing with 6 year-olds.

I’m trying to get enough energy and motivation to finish up my homework sooner rather than later. On a side note, this is great with Dove chocolate!

I started my day with this and it helped me get going for my day.

This tea is seriously helping me get over a severe case of “It is Saturday, but can’t relax because I have homework” blues.

Wow, this is one intense Jasmine! I love Jasmine Pearls and I didn’t expect this to be very strong because I have not typically had good experiences with non-pearl Jasmine Greens. I think I would take this down to a 2 minute steep next time, 3 minutes is verging on a bitter edge for my tastes. Overall, pretty good and I’m looking forward to another infusion at a lower time and possibly lower temp. Thanks to threewhales for my supply of this tea!

Thanks to threewhales I have my own little tin of this beauty. I like it both plain and with milk/sugar – this is one versatile blend! It really did help me to perk up a bit and now I’ll hopefully be able to get something productive done.

I was really wanting an oolong session, but I grabbed this one and unfortunately it just isn’t doing it for me. There is a toasty, honey-like flavor, but it feels like something is missing from the flavor. Mmm.. maybe just a shower and then to bed.

This tastes really great today!

This is the perfect relaxing tea to accompany my leisurely bath while reading P.S. I Love You. I’m looking forward to several cups of this tonight!

I am a former coffee drinker turned tea lover.

Black tea is probably my favorite type of tea, but I rather enjoy most types… I’m even developing a taste for pu-erh.

Rating Scale:
0-10: This tea is either flavorless or just plain undrinkable. I will avoid these teas in the future.

11-20: I was only able to make it through a few sips before pouring the tea out.

21-30: I may have been able to make it through the first cup but the thought of having another has me cringing.

31-40: Teas in this range are not horrible, but nothing I would seek out in the future.

41-60: Would drink if offered, but would not purchase for myself.

61-70: Okay, nothing special

71-80: Enjoyable, but I have to be in the mood for these. Probably would purchase if I found a really great price.

81-90: Pretty good tea, will probably be one of my favorites.

91-95: These teas are really excellent. I wouldn’t necessarily run out and buy more of these (just because there are so many teas out there that I haven’t tried), but I would miss this tea.

96-99: Terrific, very impressive.

100: This special rating is reserved for teas that are absolutely perfect in my opinion. I will only give out a rating of 100 to one tea per category (Earl Grey, unflavored black, dessert tea, Irish Breakfast, etc). These are teas that I really want to have around.

Perfect Teas so Far:

Earl Grey: Saint Isaac’s Blend (Russian Earl Grey) from Upton

Dessert Tea: Marco Polo from Mariage Freres

Unflavored Black: Emperor’s Red from Premium Steap
