Yay! High roller last night. Must have needed the boost after my two 11 hour shifts. This tea was quite a curiousity. I’ve never had dates or date tea. Also it looked quite different from other instant teas i’ve tried. It isn’t a powdered instant tea it’s a crystalized instant tea. After brewing it smelled of honey and fruit and a little bit of black tea. I took just a few sips of this brewed as it is sooo sugary I just couldn’t drink it. I passed along to my husband who ha it gone in a few sips. If he weren’t diabetic I’d find where we could get more. He liked it so much it would be great to get it for him as he hardly enjoys my teas. I’m not sure how to rate this one yet.

Thanks Rabs for the chance to roll the dice and play the game.

Too bad this was too sweet for you – how much water did you use? I had to use about 16+ ounces to drink it and i love sugar!

I used 16oz as well. It had a good flavor, and maybe I’ll let it cool more next time. I usually use 4-5 small rock sugar crystals in my 16oz mug. Just enough to bring out some flavored teas fruity goodness. I’m more fond of sugar when it’s in my baked goods than in beverages. I think it’s because I grew up with diet pop my sugar taste buds have been harmed:(

Bio

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
