Although I much prefer loose teas now as opposed to pre-baged ones I still like to try a new one every now and then. Usually they’re nothing special, I’ll try it once and that’s usually it other than the black tea bags and maybe a honey lemon that I always have on hand. This one, however, is now a must have in my cupboard.

More of a juice tea for sure, and super cool in it’s pink colour after being steeped. Personally I like to leave the bag in for this one the entire time to strengthen the taste. A little bitter tasting at times but not overwhelmingly so. I think this must come from the blackberries as I find it to be almost identical to when I eat them fresh.

I have to disagree with Indigobloom about the teabags. I find these to be extra sturdy and probably one of the best designs I’ve ever used in terms of not ripping…plus the triangle shape is just plain cool!

Tried this one iced for the first time the other day….steeped two bags in hot water to make sure it didn’t taste too watery and then poured over ice. Delicious!!! Actually probably one of the better iced teas I’ve had.

The only negative thing I would have to say is agreeing with the hibiscus flavour….I find you can only taste it when it’s at that in between point between hot and cold. Still steaming?? Great! Iced?? Great! Cooled off and sitting for a while?? Not so much.

Hey all!

Raised and brought up in a small town in Nova Scotia, grocery store teas were typically all I had to access. After recently undergoing a move to Toronto I’m so excited at all the opportunities to try new teas everyday! I’ve had to dedicate one of my kitchen cupboards to my obsession TEAheehee
