Heyo! The scent of lime when I cut open the package nearly knocked me over. That may have made me a wee bit wary, especially since I’ve been so impressed with Herbal Infusions’ natural, absolutely no artificialness teas.

However, now that’s it’s cooled sufficiently to drink, it’s still got that natural goodness. The lime is quite a bit more toned down now that it’s steeped and the Ceylon base really comes through. I’m really enjoying this one, though I’m not getting much coconut flavour at all. The lime with the black base is really neat though.

I was planning on picking some up tonight (well at midnight). You have made me more confidant in that decision.

I hope you picked some stuff up from HI :) I’ve only positive things to say about them, each tea I try continues to impress me.

VariaTEA

I got 50 g of Cacao tea and about 3-4 samples of different teas including this one. I am excited to try them all!!

Courtney

Yay! That’s awesome. I went through my 50g of Cacao way too fast. I’m already planning my next order, and it will definitely by 100g of Cacao haha.

VariaTEA

haha I definitely jumped on the opportunity to get some Strawberry Cacao tea because that sounds amazing. Usually I would have just gotten a sample size but everyone seems to love the Cacao tea so I took a leap of faith and got 50 g. I am sure I won’t regret it. Worse comes to worse, if I don’t like it, I am sure someone on steepster will offer it a lovely home where it will be loved :P

Courtney

I was checking periodically but I never saw the Strawberry Cacao! Darn. I will have to keep a lookout for any other flavours they offer. I really hope you enjoy all their teas :)

I don’t think it’s actually for sale yet, bit if you order and mention Steepster in the text they’ll add it in.

Profile

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
