I think I got this from Tamm. Not sure. I’ve been doing so many swaps lately and just tossed all my samples together. I suck.
The looks really pretty. Dark green against bright red. Lovely. I wasn’t expecting much from the taste since that was just too many dried berries in there. I added extra leaf so that I’d taste the tea. This tastes mostly like tart freeze dried raspberry… I think this is one of those teas that Teavana formulated so that it only tastes good sweetened. When it cools, you can detect the floral and slightly vegetal oolong base. It’s a shame about the berries because I think the oolong would be a lot tastier without them. And the berries would be a lot tastier in my cereal.
I may try this cold brewed for my husband. :) I think it would work better that way.

I’m thinking that too. The last cup I had I actually separated from the freeze dried berries because I actually like the tea base, just not the added stuff.

The newer blend of this is sans strawberries btw.

i didn’t even notice the strawberries so I guess it wouldn’t make a difference for me. hehe Sounds like too much work to pick all the berries out. I’ll just have Husband drink it. He’ll like it since he sweetens everything!

Tamm

LOL maybe I’m wrong about what kinds of berries? This is totally expected. lolol My husband didn’t like this one. He likes his to not taste like tea. :p

Mercuryhime

You’re probably not wrong. I just didn’t look too hard, I think. My husband doesn’t mind tea as long as it’s flavored and sweet, which this one will be. He really hates savory teas though, so all my lovely japanese greens are for me only. Thank goodness! It’s bad enough I have to hide my chocolate so that I can eat some before he does. :)

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
