Like being kicked in the face by an Englishman who is not too certain about the validity of his opinions.

This stuff revitalizes me. Slightly smoky and very smooth.

drank Maple Maple by Fairmont

Has a sweet but not overpowering maple sugar aroma and flavor. The tea itself is not as strong as the average black tea. It’s a very soothing tea especially for colder weather, but not a pick-me-up.

Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Malt

185 °F / 85 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Science writer and a cat that learned to type.

I grew up in a tea-loving family, and tea has always been a part of daily life. I’m still astounded by the amount of tea and teaware back home every time I visit! While I’m most familiar with straight Chinese teas, I’m growing to explore and appreciate other types of tea, including blended and flavored ones. A good blend can reflect the thought and creativity that was put into making it, instead of being too sweet or busy in a way that gives the “genre” a bad rap.

-most black teas (even lapsang)
-most oolongs, especially Fujian teas, baozhong and dancong
-straight white teas

Variable (some are great, some not so):
-most green teas
-tie guan yin
-flavored white teas

90-100: definite repurchase if possible, recommended
80-90: enjoyed, possible repurchase
70-80: fair to good
60-70: fair with some shortcomings
50-60: there’s still a chance I’d take this if it were free
under 50: absolutely not
