drank Tutti Fruity by English Tea Store
4315 tasting notes

I had ordered this for a friend of mine who isn’t too keen on tea, but seems to like fruity tisanes like this one. I didn’t tell her it was a children’s tea. :)

Well, after I gave this to her, she was nice enough to open the pouch and give me enough to brew a cup of it for myself so that I could try it, since this is one I hadn’t yet tried.

I’m not crazy about hibiscus, but I was hopeful that there was enough other ingredients in this to keep the tisane interesting. But after I steeped it for five minutes, it looked like hibiscus … which worried me.

Fortunately, the hibiscus adds a lot of color to this but not a lot of its syrupy texture or tart flavor. Yes, there is some tartness, but, some of the other flavors balance that out a bit, making this a pleasant sweet-yet-tart kind of tisane. It has a candy-like taste to it, reminding me a bit of sweet-tarts. I don’t taste much of the individual fruit… but I am enjoying the way they all sort of meld together. I can also taste the rose which is a nice surprise.

It’s a little tart, a little sweet, a little fruity and a little floral. Overall, an enjoyable cuppa, but not something I’d drink on a regular basis.

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.
