I was a bit worried about this tea after reading the reviews and noticing a common theme amongst them: this tea tastes like grape. I love grapes. But, I’m not a fan of grape flavored things, I don’t like grape ice pops or candies or soft drinks, I’m not even crazy about grape juice although I’d prefer grape juice (or wine) over artificial grape flavored things. But I love Darjeeling and that note of muscatel, and I think I’ve even tried a grape flavored tea that I liked from Lupicia and… now that I think about it, even one from Den’s.

And when I opened the pouch, I could definitely smell the grape. Once brewed, yep… grape.

The flavor is indeed grape-like, but, I notice other flavors in there too. I notice an ever-so-faint note of oatmeal, and a brown sugar taste too. Maybe a hint of butter, but, I would like for the butter taste to be a little stronger. It definitely tastes more grape than raisin … which, of course, I realize that raisins are in fact grapes, but, when I bite into a raisin, it has it’s own distinct flavor.

It is a tasty tea, but, it just doesn’t really deliver the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie flavor. It is flavorful, and I will certainly enjoy it while I have it, but this isn’t Frank’s best attempt. I do look forward to trying the Red Hot Cinnamon Chai in the next day or two, though!

As I continue to sip this, I notice the flavors develop a little. It still doesn’t scream out “OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIE” but it has those subtle flavors slowly building in the background. I actually am liking this more as I sip it, so I am going to increase my initial rating slightly.

No, I don’t think that I would ever take a blind taste test of this and think “Oatmeal Raisin Cookie” but, it is very tasty, all the same.

Luckily being forewarned i wasn’t gunning for cookie and ended up thinking it was a good cup of tea, just a grape-y tea :)

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
