NO tasting notes for this one yet? How is that possible? I decided to try this one before the warmer weather hits, this being called ‘Winter Solstice’. (It’s apparently going to be 70 degrees tomorrow.) The steep was a light pink color. The flavor was different than any other tea I’ve tried, but there are many ingredients here I’ve never had in tea. It’s a bit tangy like a creamsicle flavor. Obviously, creamsicle is not something you’d usually associate with winter, but I guess it’s my best description. It has its own flavor! With herbal teas, I think they need a nice base to really bring out a strong flavor, but this tea couldn’t possibly be more crammed with delicious ingredients. Look at the list! Almonds! Rose petals! Even carrots! There was a WHOLE anise star seed in my steep fercrisakes. Those are bigger than a quarter!

Looking at the website (http://www.fusiontearoom.com/), every single tea there has an AMAZING list of ingredients (and picture!). They definitely get points for being inventive and going further than many other tea companies might go. They put their heart into this tea. This is the first I’ve tried from Fusion. I would love to try them all.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
