Backlog:

With my subscription to the Selection Club from Simple Loose Leaf, I have thus far always chose the sampler pack. Hey, I’m a taster, and I find the smaller sizes of five teas to be much nicer for my needs than larger sizes of just one or two teas.

I don’t know that if I were choosing just one or two teas for the month of April, that I would have selected this tea, because generally speaking, herbal tisanes like this (with lots of hibiscus) are not my favorites.

That said, this is a pretty good tisane, and I found that the hibiscus and cranberry seemed to marry much better than some other berries with hibiscus. They are both tarty type of flavors and they meld together in a seamless way.

I liked this better iced than hot. It’s a tasty tisane. Not my favorite, but they can’t all be my favorites, and I liked it enough to not only finish the hot cup when I reviewed it, but also enough to brew a full half-gallon pitcher to enjoy iced the next day.

Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/04/11/cranberry-breeze-herbal-tisane-simple-loose-leaf/

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.
