Ok so the description of this tea and the ingredients list GRAPES. But there are no grapes in here. There are raisins. Raisins are not grapes! Just saying!

This tea has a strange smell. There is a tart blueberry smell but almost like a yeasty, bread-y smell. Very tart smelling.

The tea is super tart. Thanks Hibiscus! I think though it an be controlled with a shorter steep time. After you choke down the initial hibiscus flavour, you can taste the black currant and elderberry. I get raisin but no grape flavour, HA! There is a very faint blueberry taste in the aftertaste. I do not get sangria at all. So I guess that means I get to open a bottle of wine and make some real sangria. Mmmmm!

Right now I am not liking this one too much, but I think it can be fixed up and blended with something to be a bit better.

Ha ha. I know. Raisins are dehydrated grapes, and they do not taste like grapes. I deteste raisins, so to me there is a huge difference between a grape and a raisin.

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.
