I purchased this tea a few weeks back when Teavana had their 25% off friends and family coupon.

To begin, this tea tastes like a tisane. I can’t really make out ANY oolong flavors in the blend. I thought this might be the case from looking at the dry leaf – it is clear that this is mostly fruit chunks / non-tea bits and very LITTLE dry tea leaf.

The odd thing about this tea is that I like the way it tastes alright – its not my favorite but it is enjoyable ONLY if it is in a travel tumbler and I cannot smell it. The tumbler turned into iced tea as I got distracted at work this morning so I opened the lid. When I could SMELL the aroma I really was not interested. The aroma is VERY STRONG FRUITY and artificial smelling.

WITh the lid closed on the tumbler this was a drinkable fruity beverage. I don’t MIND this tea, but it certainly is not my favorite.

Does anyone want to trade for this?

Did this one taste really floral to you too? I had it as a blend the other day and the rose was sooo powerful!

Lala

I found the rose taste was very strong too.

I am not sure if its rose – i smelled again and it is such a strong rose + strawberry + artificial. I WANT to like it but….I can’t!

Lala

Adding rock sugar helps a bit but it is still very artificial tasting.

Awww, and I was gonna go try this one sometime soon, ‘cause it sounded promising. Oh well. I’ll pick a different one.

I like all kinds of tea and am open to new things. I am learning about all kinds of new tea and am working on pushing my palate with new tastes.

Looking for new tea shops/houses/cafes and finding new teas to sample is often part of the adventure!

Bringing varied teas to work makes the day interesting

I live in Framingham, MA with my husband, a cranky orange cat and an oversized chihuahua.

I am open to tea swaps from around the world and tea meetups if anyone is in the Greater Boston/ New England area.

As of 7/6/14 I am working to make every tea I own appear in my cupboard…including things I only have a small amount. Look around! Want to swap?
