I’m not feeling this one and it’s my second time trying it. Any tea that has a description of “smelling of crab” should have thrown up the good ole warning flag. And I get it…there is a faint crab…err, krab smell.

There is a natural sweetness to this tea, but the sharp veggie dryness kills it. I’m glad this tea was part of a free sample pack…I would never re-order it. As a matter of fact, this tin will probably go into the drawer of misfit teas and wait until it can be swapped.

Any takers for the krab tea?

Not to deter people from taking the sample off your hands, but that sounds disgusting.

Seriously, this sounds so odd. If you are really looking for someone to relieve you of it, I’d love to try it. Seafood and tea, all rolled into one. Hehe.

it just wan’t my cup of tea…you guys might love it.

aug3zimm, I think I can send a sample to TX. :) Just email me your home address and I’ll send it out. No stalking I promise. Although I did look at your kitty pics. My 2 cats love a good box to play in too! Do you have any teas that you might swap with me?
