I selected this to drink whilst watching Star Trek (2009). I love this film and wanted something daring and different to drink (while secretly pretending it is an alien liquid…sshh). Not only does this tea sound awesome but I imagine that it will have an interesting flavour due to the ingredients.

The back of the tea sachet said to steep for 2 minutes with boiling water.

Colour: Watery red, exactly how you would imagine a strawberry tea to look like (I imagine in this case it is down to the elderberry).
Smell: Sweet with tones of honey and fruit.

Taste: All the tea’s I seem to be drinking recently have been sweet and this is no exception. Light and airy like your usual fruit tea but grounded with the black tea. The honey is so delicious and in my opinion is the strongest flavour in this tea. Very nice, I could drink this all day.

So to sum everything up this tea smells and tastes like sweet honey with an after taste of a very subtle berry. Not much notice of the quince but that does not matter to me. You wouldn’t need it.

This was my one and only tea bag of this :( Must make a mental note to try and buy more.

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
