My blend arrived today! Yippeeeeee! Of course, I had to try it immediatley, even though our own LiberTEAS suggests waiting three weeks for full potency. I will just have to review it again later! I did not get my order into the website on time for a free custom blend, but I was able to find a free shipping code by liking their facebook page.
I definitely get the honey and vanilla. The black base is smooth and pleasing, which is usually where I sometimes have issue with flavored teas. The presentation is lovely with large coconut pieces, the jasmine flowers and the orange safflower petals. The caramel looks slightly sticky as it is hot outside in my mailbox! It did not at all affect the blend. In three weeks, I expect the flavors to slightly intensify, but if not, this is a winner in my cupboard. I am quite pleased, overall, and am planning my next order as I type this. Truly a fun experiment, and I will definitley drink all of this. I like the options Ovation has to enhance the teas beyond just flavoring. I also feel the amount of tea in the pouch is a good amount for the price I paid. I did also get a few coupons in my order for my next purchase. Thank you, Ovation Teas!
