Received this one as part of the blissful moments tea of the month club.

This is a mix of dried/candied fruit pieces with red and green rooibos. The dry tea smells very much like sweet candy, slightly lemony.

The brewed tea smells and tastes exactly like Teavana’s Strawberry Lemonade, which coincidentally is the other tea that came with this one. The brewed tea is a bit thicker and you can slightly taste the red rooibos underneath the candied strawberry lemonade taste. Very sweet on its own.

A bit disappointed that this one is so similar to the strawberry lemonade, and very disappointed that those two teas came together (considering they are meant to be blended together).

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
