I actually forgot I had this until this morning while looking around in my tea cabinets. I know that isn’t exactly a ringing endorsement of this tea but I do have a lot of stuff!

This is kind of a curious blend. It contains aloe for digestion and inulin – I had to look that up. The inulin is a polysaccharide which is slightly sweet and is also supposed to increase bacterial flora.

So anyway, this is obviously meant to be a theraputic-esque tea but it doesn’t taste too bad either. The chinese green tea is mild (I believe it may be a dragonwell) and I don’t mind the taste of aloe. If you’ve never had it before you might find it a bit weird. There is a nice touch of sweetness here and the rose petals are not too numerous, just enough to add a touch of floral. I rather like this. I might have to try it iced.

As for the other ingredients: natural flavoring, who knows what that means and there is sugar in here as well.

I saw this on their Web site and was curious…how does the Aloe taste? I can’t get past the whole, aloe-is-in-lotions; you’re-not-supposed-to-eat-lotion effect.

Have you ever had aloe juice? It’s really fairly benign in my opinion. Reminds me a bit of cucumber.

ooh, sounds good. I’ll have to start there and work my way up to aloe tea! ;) Thanks for the suggestion!

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
