So, apparently I am allergic to something I ate/drank last night. Half of my chin has swollen up and it hurts so much worse than I ever thought a rash could. ;~; I didn’t have anything strange or unusual, so I think it might have been the 3 root tea, since it had 3 ingredients I’d never tried before. I could always taste it again to find out but… I’m really not about to potentially put myself in so much pain again!

To make myself feel better since I can’t eat or even talk much without searing pain, I decided to make some fancy tea. And what’s fancier than champagne? As I think I’ve mentioned before I love the non-alcohol part of many alcoholic drinks, but not the actual alcohol part since it just makes me sleepy and that’s no fun at all at a party. Have one drink, curl up on the couch and fall asleep (except for sake, for some reason). So teas like Pink Sonoma are my best friend!

As other notes have mentioned, this reminds me a LOT of Buddha’s Blend. Very strong peach and jasmine, and there’s a hint of pineapple there too but it’s not very strong. I get some champagne taste but it’s hard to picture it as champagne in my head because of the lack of, well, carbonation! I have enough of my sample from ne14t to mix some with something fizzy though!

I’ve always wondered what iced tea would be like if you carbonated it in a soda stream? (You have those in the states, right?). This seems like the perfect one to try it with.

Eek! Allergies are no fun! I hope whatever ingredient it was is quite rare (which it does sound like). Feel better!

@TassieTeaGirl I am dying to get a soda stream, pretty sure once I do I will carbonate any iced tea I can get my hands on!

@Kittena: Thanks! ^^ At least I know to stay away from it in the future. It’s a shame, since it’s a tasty blend too.

Oh jeez, that sounds awful! You poor thing. I hope it heals up quickly. :(

MissLena

Hope your allergy goes away asap! And Yay, i found someone else who drinks sake! No one that I know likes it, they think I’m strange for drinking it lol :)

Well thankfully or hopefully in the long run it wasn’t the tea I sent! I felt the same way about this blend, the lack of carbonation made it a bit different, but I had similar issues with Davids whisky blends as well. Soda Stream is the best idea ever too, I watched a YouTube video of them a few weeks back and have wanted one ever since, but it would cut into the tea fund :O

Oh I think I’ll have to do that too! We’ll have to swap soda stream tea reviews!

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
