I’m moving through my little pile of SerendipiTea samples. I’m not sure if I’m super eager to, though, because the past blends haven’t been all that tasty. I feel like most of the blends that have fruit in them end up tasting the same… and it gives me the unpleasant image of all of the tea being kept together in the same big barrel in some warehouse.. not really, I know, but the thought lingers!

The dry leaf smells promising in the little pouch. It’s sweet with a bit of orange and a little something that reminds me of Christmas. Once water has been added, I’m getting a very tart orange liquid Motrin scent… eh.

I’m not getting anything creamy, really. It tastes like warm hibiscus and oranges. I wish that this would be more complex, but this is simply a tart tea with a nasty scent. I wonder if I’m just making bad choices with SerendipiTea samples or if my tastes have changed since trying this brand.
