drank Compassionberry Tea by Snapple
4366 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.

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 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.
