Thank you to Dexter3657 for this sample!! When I smelled this brewed I thought “this is soda” and then I sipped it and it was like hot flat soda…which actually was kind of better than it sounds. This tea has ridiculously awful reviews which is funny because I didn’t hate it. It was weird for sure, but like the note that came with my swap package said “everyone should try it at least once”! It is very cola like, I can’t understand how they get it to taste like that. It isn’t something I would purchase if it ever came back, but I am definitely glad to try it!!

Oh I hated this! I actually bought a big tin of this when I first started buying teas and I ended up begging them to take the tea back once I tried it. The manager said that she would only because it was this specific tea! :-)

lol yeah, this was a baaaaad baaaaad tea for me.. i bought one iced at the store, really liked it, and then bought a bag to bring home.. i never could quite replicate whatever they did in the store to make it taste so much better haha

LOL I’m really glad you were brave enough to try it. I think it’s better cold than hot. I’ve hot brewed then cooled this before, but I have some in the fridge right now cold brewing. I added more cherry tisane to it trying to bring out more cherry less cola. Will post a note on how it turns out.

Blech. I hated this one too, but I was curious. I wish I’d tried the rootbeer instead. Also, I wish I hadn’t bought 100g of it! :O It’s gone now. Finally.

lol i liked the rootbeer better than cherry cola. maybe if i tried either the way they are doing their ‘poptea’ this summer i would have liked them more? it was the flatness i think that got me

Cavocorax

Yeah I can’t wait to try either of those as a poptea! That might make all the difference!

I just bought some rootbeer off of Momo, so I think I’ll try it as a poptea when it arrives!

Aimee Popovacki

i bet it will be just the thing to make it right.. i bet if people like it enough its something they’d consider bringing back.. i mean the idea of it was good

Bio

Born and raised in Connecticut, went to college in Vermont, and moved back to work after a year of service.

I love sweet, decadent, desserty teas the most but I also appreciate a strong refreshing cup of green or white tea. I recently started a matcha smoothie morning, sometimes mate or black tea, then black tea and rooibos throughout the day, and whatever my little heart desires most when I get home from work!

I’m obsessed with Della Terra, DAVIDs, and 52teas because they have the best dessert teas but also have a selection of some more straight things too. Recently tried Simpson and Vail and LOVE them too!!

I don’t have a rating system, I just kind of guess. I think I should make a rating system…

85-100 I want this in my cupboard always
75-85 I like it but I’m not rushing out to buy more immediately
60-75 Probably not going to want more than the sample
40-60 I don’t like this tea, I wouldn’t recommend it, and I won’t drink it again
0-40 This wasn’t even worth the sip.

Ok let’s try that for a bit now.
