drank Compassionberry Tea by Snapple
4833 tasting notes

My husband and I are fans of The Celebrity Apprentice, and so we caved in and purchased this as well as the Trop A Rocka diet flavored Snapple. Hubby is diabetic, so he is drinking the Trop A Rocka, and I am allergic to aspartame, so I am drinking the Compassionberry (we were both rooting for Bret, though)

I don’t usually drink many RTD teas, because, well, they’re generally way too sweet for my taste and don’t usually taste much like tea.

Unfortunately, that is the case here, as well. I can definitely taste the sweet (very sweet), I can also taste the passionfruit and the strawberry flavorings… but I don’t taste much in the way of green or black teas.

But it is a good cause… and it isn’t horrible tasting, just a bit too sweet for my taste, and a bit more like fruit juice than tea. It would definitely be better than nothing if I were out and about.

I’ll buy almost any tea- even RTD sweet teas for a good cause.

LiberTEAS

Well, that is why we purchased it – and we probably would not have heard about it if it weren’t for the show. I’m a fan of Bret Michaels so I really wish that the Trop A Rocka was available as a non-diet selection – but as his cause is diabetes – I totally understand why he chose to make his tea a diet tea. Unfortunately, aspartame would have me terribly sick within about 15 minutes of ingesting it… UGH.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

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, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
