How do we rate teas?

Taste:
1 of 5 leaves –  We don’t recommend this tea.
2 of 5 leaves – This tea is just ok.
3 of 5 leaves  – A decent tasty tea.
4 of 5 leaves – Quite a good cuppa!
5 of 5 leaves – Outstanding! A MUST try.

Steepability;
1 of 5 leaves — this is one fussy tea!
2 of 5  leaves — this tea is high maintenance but worth the effort.
3 of 5 leaves — this tea is a bit delicate.
4 of 5 leaves — this tea requires very little effort.
5 of 5 leaves — this tea is easy to make!

When tasting tea we take the entire experience into account and then give an overall rating. The reviews will detail aroma, flavor, size of leaves, and other details like organic or free trade. Delectable is not just for tea snobs! In an effort to appeal to everyone from tea novices to experts we rate every teas’ “steepability” to let you know how easy, or difficult, it is to make.
