Tasting Notes

Tea Infusiast Review Policy

I have a Tea Infusiast Review Policy because integrity, honesty, and transparency are important to me. I enjoying reviewing teas that I buy, that friends send me, or that are gifted to me by sellers. When sellers are kind enough to offer me free tea to review, I only accept if I think there is a strong chance that I will enjoy the tea,* and they agree to my review policy.

My review terms are:

  • I will not post about or review a tea unless I sincerely enjoyed it.
  • If I do enjoy a tea, I will happily post or review.
  • I will always disclose if I received a tea from a seller for free or with any special discount.

I hope this transparency gives everyone confidence in the sincerity of my reviews and makes them more useful.

If you have any questions, please drop them in the comments. I am more than happy to answer them. If you are a seller interested in discussing the possibility of a tea review, you can message me on Instagram @teainfusiast or send me a comment here. (I check my Instagram more regularly.)

*Note about teas I am likely to enjoy:

I enjoy unflavored teas–straight Camellia sinensis–the most. I don’t disdain flavored teas, but I do not usually enjoy them as much. The main exceptions are Earl Grey and masala chai–these are perennial favorites. Still, I prefer my chai made with real spices rather than natural or artificial “flavoring.”

I really like this, Traci. This is how I approach my tea reviews too but I hadn’t thought to put it out there in writing. I think I will now – thanks to you! πŸ™‚
