Choco and nut work very nice here(nut flavor is a little bit more dominant here on my palate),plus the tea taste mild,even when I keep the teabag in the cup for more than 10 minutes,it doesn’t go bitter or too much.So I would like to use the same teabag to make a second or a third brew for some longer time,and it works out quite good.

Since it reminded me of a nice cup of chocolate milk or pecan flavored milk when I was a kid,I tried a splash of milk ,and some honey ——but it turned out this blend is best drink plain I think.
Plus,I know there are Calendula officinalis here,from whose Hydrosol I I used to get a lot of chocolate scents~!So maybe I should buy some of this flower alone to try blending some interesting teas .

drank Ambrosia Plum by Zhena's Gypsy Tea

I like plums,but I don’t like this one.The dry leaf smell like real dried plum(/prune),not too bad ,but somehow it makes me think that it is salty.The tea is astringent and a bit of smoky,which makes my throat not so comfortable,plus the plum aspect taste salty and bitter and astringent and a little bit too much,not my beloved fresh fruitness or sweetness. I suppose I won’t buy it any more.

This one is a wonderful blind buy!I never had Tulsi before,then one day when searching for one more item to meet free-shipping standard,I came across this.As a herb lover(plus I always fancy excellent roses) I bought this , curious about what tulsi would taste like .To my surprise,the very sweet and lovely taste of rose here is better than expected, which tastes and smells like fine Rosewater .Tulsi is light ,crisp,straightfoward , linear yet powerful in a delicate way and not at all ignorable. Truly tulsi is like a queen ,powerful and feminine , like the mother of the land ,with her gentleness and majesty.(Yep it reminds me of Aquaman’s wife,the beautiful、attractive and tough queen Mera~!)

Interestingly, the first time I had this one,I can’t barely bear it ,since tulsi is somehow earthy and fishy ,making me a little dizzy.I don’t know if you guys cook fish and spiral lions(/barnacle) with fresh mint ,but that particular kind of mint and tulsi truely share something in common,with its fishy for instance.People in some other provinces here use basil instead of mint ,so I think Tulsi as a branch of basil is solid to be at some point similiar to the particular kind of fresh mint? Once getting used to tulsi,you will like this energetic herb very much!(I fell in love instantly with this one the second time I tried it ,though the first time I just had a few sips and poured the whole cup away LOL

BTW,this one can be repeatedly brewed for a few times ,maintaining its good quality as the first cup……nice work!

After a few samplers ,I’m growing to like this.The combination of berry tastes are lovely,tart and sweet with a delightful red berries scent .I rate this higher than True Blueberry Tea,partly it may be true I like the red berries better,what’s more I also think this tea is much clearer than Blueberry Tea.Apart from the usual hibiscus(actually I love it even when brewed alone),lovely and tart raspberry 、cranberry、cherry and a hint of blueberry,I can sense the sweetness of strawberries too myself.The tea is so young and lovely in my opinion,well done.

Yes,I definitely got the real blueberry taste here.BUT I’m afraid I would not want to buy this one again,since the taste seems to be in a blur .I understand that many fruit teas have the base with hibiscus and citrus and sth,and surely some of them are pretty good.But this one isn’t so well balanced in my point of view,especially when brewed hot .
To look on the bright side,this is quite a acceptable and yummy choice after my workouts (of course without sugar,or what’s workout aimed to achieve ? XD),and I have finished my tea bags in that way already~

drank Peppermint by Celestial Seasonings

I think the mint here is quite strong and extremely refreshing.A pleasure for those who adore peppermint a lot .The scent somehow reminds me of fine peppermint essential oil——a little piquant/sharp 、green&cooling,while the taste tend to be rounded 、sweet and soothing.I prefer it as the pick-me-up to start my day.

This one is all right ,and it surprises me that it has the exactly same taste of a kind of yogurt from a local brand long ago.My mom and I used to share the peach flavored yogurt in my childhood(and it was almost the only fruit-juice-added yogurt from that brand for a long time). The local stores still sell this yogurt(the brand’s name is " sunshine "when translated into English BTW),I don’t truly appreciate the yogurt any more cause it’s too sweet and candy-like,a little icky and artificial but I think kids and some sweet teeth still love it.
Apart from that,this one sometimes show sth odd——there are some tiny scents that distract me,don’t know what they are,but quite acceptable .The tea will still make a juicy、 tart and sweet pleasure for kids or me sometimes when I really want something sweet 、naughty/childish.

I may have different rating systems as to different kinds of tea,so maybe when you see A is rated higher than B while they are not in the same kind(like they are both black or green or herbs or sth),then it’s possible I like B better personally.
