I so want to like this tea.

Dry, it smells wonderful. Steeped, it gives of a great aroma too, and is a very pretty dark pink/purple color. Fruit tastes are refreshing, tropical and exotic. I just can’t get past the heavy aftertaste of what another reviewer called perfume. Usually I don’t mind rose, so maybe its the artificial flavoring. I’ve tried blending this with other teas, but have not found the right match.

Maybe if I steep it at a different temperature I can get the fruit without as much rose/floral.

As much as we’d like to, we can’t like them all now, can we?

That is true. It’s an odd relationship with tea. Sometimes I just want to say, “It’s not you, it’s me”. We just aren’t meant to be.

Bio

A hot pot of tea was always a staple in my childhood. Mom used to get these wonderful herbal teas that were just so comforting.

Leaving home, I would always enjoys the gifts of tea from my mom, but could never find the same satisfying experiences from Celestial Seasoning and similar brands. I lost my way from tea for many years.

Recently a friend introduced me to Teavana loose teas. What a treat and re-awakening of my love for tea. Now I can’t get enough of this new “world of tea”. What a fun journey to embark on!
