drank Acai Berry by Zhena's Gypsy Tea
902 tasting notes

I am very excited to try this. Thanks, LiberTEAS, for sending me this bag!

Whilst Zhena’s regular teas can be hit or miss for me (Earl Grey Raspberry being the prime example), I’ve been fairly satisfied with her herbal blends. Reading the ingredients, I like everything listed (and, my, that is a lot of ingredients and flavorings). The primary flavors I taste are the hibiscus and rooibos, with a hint of vanilla, citrus, and blueberry. I’m not sure about the hibiscus/rooibos combination, though. The rooibos tones down the tartness of the hibiscus, and the hibiscus covers a bit of the woodsy, earthiness of the rooibos. The more I sip, the more I think I really like it. I brewed for 10 minutes (like I usually do for hibiscus- or rooibos-based tisanes).

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
