Just got back from having Vietnamese pho, and wanted something fruity but not fussy, so a fruity tea it was! Having this in tea bag form also means I don’t have to clean out my infuser…can you tell I’m feeling pretty lazy at this point in time? My excuse is I did a bunch of chores already today so this is my time to relax before next week’s craziness starts.
This is a raspberry flavoured tea with hibiscus, its interesting to watch this steep in a glass, because you can see the tea steep out due to the red colour of the ingredients. The taste is slightly tart, with a hint of sweetness. Its not the best quality tea imo – the flavour reminds me a bit of cherry / cranberry rather than just raspberry, and the hibiscus floralness confuses things.
Bought after hearing a friend mention it as we were discussing our favorite chai teas. I’d never tried it before, as I was a Tazo chai drinker. But, this tea is really something. Love that I don’t have to add sweetener to it. I think it’s the cinnamon, and the licorice that’s no longer listed on the box. This tea snob will most likely purchase this again.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Licorice
Tea purchased in the grocery store yesterday. I am still having problems sleeping so need to find more decaf options until this crisis is over. :P
I don’t see the point in paying a lot of money for a decaf tea because they aren’t usually that tasty anyway. THis blend is ok though. From the name, you would think its all fruit flavor, but there is also spearmint and lemongrass in the blend. So it’s more of an herbly, minty, fruity kind of flavor. I found it fairly mild and refreshing, Definitely nothing to rave over but it will serve the purpose of helping me sleep better.
I put two of the teabags in the fridge to try cold brewing them. I think this will be a bit better as an iced tea.
This tea does NOT taste like strawberry champagne…it tastes like a strawberry jelly-filled doughnut! The strawberry flavor is quite sweet and slightly artificial and there is a distinct pastry note to the aftertaste. It’s not at all what I was expecting, but it’s actually pretty good! Not sure this is something I would buy, but I’ll happily drink the 3 sachets I have left. Thank you to The Cookie Lady for the awesome swap package…I’ve been sampling the teas she sent me all week and I still have several left to try!
Flavors: Artificial, Pastries, Strawberry
I used to work at a hotel a couple years back and my favorite shifts were the ones that started at 4am. despite the horribly earliness of it all, I really loved how quiet and dark everything was. the bar had been closed for two hours, and the bartender had gone home an hour after that. the only noise from the basement was the sound of Mexican polka music and the laundry room washing machines humming (at times it sounded as if they were humming to the beat of the ranchero) The only other person i would see in the morning was the lone person at the front desk. I would groggily say Hi and grab keys on my way out.
I worked at the little coffeeshop attached to the hotel, across from the bar. Yeah, I had to kick out a hobo that would sleep in the entryway every once in a while, but nothing exciting happened at 4:30 in the morning.
I lived within walking distance, and it was kind of cool walking through a silent ghost town that was that part of downtown. I would maybe see three people, max. Just buzzing street lamps and steaming manhole covers. An errant runner with a dog, a stumbling drunk. In the summer, when the sun would rise earlier and earlier, i would see the tiniest whisp of glow on the horizon.
This was my usual tea i took with me on those mornings. Yeah, my coffeeshop had tea there, but none of it was a good kick in the pants as this was. And i hate coffee.
It was bland, slightly cinnamony black tea that made good use of a small dose of almond milk. It had a nice kick in it that helped me though the walk and through the morning shift.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Dust
I wasn’t too enchanted with this one, since I didn’t discern any chocolate or caramel flavor in my cup…just lots of cinnamon and clove over a mediocre black base. Drinkable, but doesn’t live up to the name.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove
The Country Peach Passion is definitely my favorite in this box. The others are all berry zinger types which have always tasted a bit acidy/harsh to me. I would recommend skipping the sampler and going straight for the Country Peach Passion if possible. Otherwise I can see this being a good box for company to drink from.
