This tastes sweeter and less peachy than what I remember. Hmph.

Not bad for a tea that’s pretty obviously made out of tea dust and fannings. The smell is an interesting mix of apricot and a faint ‘toasty’ smell, which I don’t think is characteristic of white teas. Taste is smooth and there’s no bitterness. The hint of apricot is pleasent and not too artifical-tasting.

drank Wild Raspberry by Stash Tea Company

It wasn’t as sour as I expected it to be – most raspberry teas make me pucker from the tartness. I suspect that a lot of the ‘raspberry’ flavouring was really the hibiscus (which is the first ingredient on the list and has a tart cranberry-ish taste). I’m not a big fan of raspberry-flavoured things in general, but this one isn’t bad at all.

A robust black tea, too strong for me to drink without milk. It’s good for waking me up out of my zombie-like state in the morning. I’m not sure if I like it or not. That verdict will have to wait until after my taste buds wake up a little more.

I like this tea now that I’ve steeped it longer. The fruitiness comes out more and the tart bitterness of the safflower and hibiscus isn’t nearly so pronounced.

drank White Pear by Revolution Tea

I was impressed to see real pear bits in the ingredient list. Most fruit teas just have some mysterious ‘flavouring’ and leave it at that. The tea is nice and smooth and I love the hint of pear which is just strong enough to make itself known without overwhelming the tea.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
