Steep Information:
Prepared after the official tasting, during the Steepster meetup and tea tasting

Tasting Notes:
Smell: Sweet pineapple, apricot
Medium body
Taste: Smooth, fruit juice
After taste: mint/menthol

Sorry my notes are so short and cryptic but we were having fun chatting it up. (Thanks again to everyone from Steepster for hosting this.)

Rating: I am intentionally not rating these teas as I didn’t really have a chance to sit there and sip on them and think whether I would by them again, like to play with them more, although none were awful (1 leaf) or fabulous (4 leaves)

But did you like this tea? Was the flavor good?

AmazonV

I enjoyed it, it was a very fruit-juice kind of beverage, but it wasn’t a new favorite and I don’t think i’ll buy some / get it again next time i make it to NYC

Stephanie less than a minute ago Got it! Thanks for elaborating. :) I’m looking for good fruity teas and tisanes (and I discovered that honeybush is a great vehicle for fruity flavors!)
AmazonV

tried the hibiscus pineapple lychee republic of tea?

Stephanie

Oops sorry about my correction above!
No I haven’t tried that one—sounds so tropical! If you think it’s good, then I will have to try it! :)

AmazonV

it’s delicious! not really re-steep friendly but sweet and fruity and a nice night time tea

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).

0-25=Bleh! not again if it were free
25-50=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
