I have been wanting to try this one for a while. So I was pleased when Teasenz would send me this to try. It smells like running through a field of wild flowers that is near an orchard. (This here means, I get floral and citrus scents.) The flavour is mild, and refreshing.

Flavors: Flowers

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 15 sec

Tried this in the store. While I did the like the chocolate/ nut/ coconut combo, I didn’t really care for the extra sugar. It would be fine as chocolate nut blend.

Flavors: Chocolate, Coconut

I tried this at the Teavana store. That might have been a bad idea, given how much they like the rock sugar. It did smell nice though. The ginger came across way too much in the flavour (I do like ginger, just not that strong), and none of the others spices really seemed to come forward.

I tried this in the Westfield Center store. It was mildly fruity and delicious. As I was there just to pick up something, I don’t remember much beyond really liking it.

If I am able to visit a store again, hopefully I can get another sample.

I got this as a sample from the Santa Clara location last month. It smells like these muscat gummies I really like. The flavour is sweet, and floral. Too much jasmine though.
Still glad I got to try this one.

I’m not sure I like chamomile, so I had to try the Eastern version. This still has that “I fell into a meadow” scent. It has a sweet, mild flower flavour.

Now I feel very relaxed. But I might not have brewed it long enough.

Flavors: Flowers

drank Wild Jujube by teasenz

This is the most interesting sounding tisane I’ve ever has. It certainly smells like dates, except slightly more baked (date bread maybe). I ate a couple. This is fruit, right? Pretty good too, tasted a little more like berries (of the goji variety).

Brewed- it does smell more like bread now. There is a sweet, fruity flavour.
I have a feeling this would be good iced… or as a snack.

Flavors: Berries, Dates

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

I’m the first person to try this tea… hurray! My package says honey orchid.

It smells so good, sweet and floral. Honey does come out in the flavour, and a little clover (perhaps the orchid too.) Will have to try it again later.

Flavors: Honey, Orchids

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 1 min, 45 sec

It’s pretty good cold too.

Why are the only people who’ve had this tea ones who don’t like rooibos?

I picked this for one of my samples because I like orange flavour in teas, especially in the red bush blends. It has prominent citrus scent (which is really pretty nice). The flavour is a nice blend of orange and vanilla, but more on the orange side. Having this with some orange cranberry bread was really good.

Since it’s nearly summer, I will have to try a cup iced.

Flavors: Orange Zest, Vanilla
