drank Apple Pear Tulsi by Fusion Teas
2307 tasting notes

I really liked this blend and I’m finishing off the rest of my sample today. I think it could have used a bit more tulsi, of course I could always add some in. I wish more tea companies would offer free shipping promotions sometimes. I know Fusion Teas shipping cost is $5.95 for me and the costs of shipping do add up over time…. of course I know that it is expensive for the company.

Anyhoo, this is a nice blend to check out!

Free shipping really does make a difference. I don’t think anything of ordering a tea or two with free shipping, but when shipping reaches $6, I usually wait or not order at all.

Me too. Once shipping goes over $5 I am much less likely to order anything; every time Harney and Sons does one of their free shipping with $25 sales I always buy stuff!

I’m definitely more inclined to impulse buy if there’s a free shipping promotion. But I usually care more about the value of the tea than the value of the shipping. If 2 oz. of tea costs $10 and there’s free shipping, and 2 oz. of a similar tea costs $4 and shipping is $6, I’m more likely to buy the cheaper tea. Promotions end, but the cost of the tea hardly ever goes down. I don’t like to fall in love with expensive teas I can’t afford to keep around. :(

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
