drank White Ambrosia by Tea Forte

It appears everyone else either loves it or hates it. I however find it only comme ci comme ça. The predominant flavour is defenitly coconut and the white tea and safflower blend together nicely but are still discernible. I had to leave it to brew for around 8-12 mins as I find it’s a tad weak for my liking, I like it when I’m packed a solid punch! After that wait time the coconut was obviously stronger and I began to enjoy it more and more with every sip. A fairly nice tea.

More, I need more. It’s so good it almost shouldn’t be true! A cinnamon explosion blended with a beautiful black tea. Sigh, life is good.

I stock up on this one! I never add sweetner to my teas so it’s nice to have a staple ‘sweet tea’ in the tea chest. I love a good strong brew and the cinnamon flavour comes out in spades in this tea with a nice undertone of plum. In the winter evenings it’s nice to brew with milk in a saucepan. I feel all warm and festive just thinking about this tea!

Not too bad. I find it’s a fine line with mint chocolate teas as each drinker normally has a very ingrained sense of perfection and anything outside of what they expect is often disliked.

For me this was a nice tea, not an extrordinary tea, not a bad tea, just nice. It didn’t have a strong or overwhelming cacao flavour but that is all the better to enjoy the mint tones. I repetedly thought as I drank it that it was so very smooth. It goes so well with a rainy spring day & a soft blanket!

drank Orchid Vanilla by Tea Forte

It’s Meh! A little let down on this one. As other reviews have already stated, the scent is delicious when dry but once steeped it becomes a mild plain vanilla loosing all but a traceable flavour of coconut as well as the extinct notes of orchid. Meh! sums it up

Loved the zing in this tea from the beautiful combination of raspberry, citrus, and hibiscus. The rich colour made me want to dive right in. I could just wrap myself in the scent. A lovely cup if you love a bit of zip.

What a shame… I really wanted to like this tea! It was very light with a flavour so subtle as to be almost non-existant. I brewed this the first time with 1 sachet to 13oz of water, the second time 2 sachets to 13oz and it was still too quiet for my tastes. Might be nice as a light flavoured water in summer.

2nd Rating: On second thought, don’t bother! I’ve tried this tea on several seperate occasions wondering if my poor rating could be due to changing moods. It’s not. If it’s even possible this tea seems to have less and less flavour with every cup. If scientists are looking for a way to study dissapearing mass, or even invisibility they should look no further… The R of T beat them to it. Fortunately this is a limited time blend, almost as limited as it’s flavour!

Preparation
