Herbal Traveling Tea Box
I’m so glad I tried this one. I was almost about to put it in the “not try” pile since the name suggested fruit punch, but I’m really glad I gave it a whirl, since it’s almost exactly like Davidstea Green & Fruity (which also like the name gives you the wrong idea), but is so good! Also, gotta love the green rooibos. I’m swear I’m getting mango even though it isn’t on the ingredients list and some creaminess from this, though I did add sweetener. Think I may be keeping the remainder of this since it is just so delicious.
Herbal Traveling Tea Box
I received the 2nd round of the Herbal Traveling tea box today which was a nice surprise as it’s been a long week!
Hmm, this is an odd one. I really didn’t taste pumpkin, though it was pleasant and creamy. I think this is my first try of an ESP Emporium tea and (at least) nothing is telling me to run far away from the company!
I intentionally overleafed and added sweetener and still no pumpkin to speak of.
This is the third time I’ve enjoyed a glass of this flavorful tea. Twice I had it hot and once iced. I enjoy the fruity, tropical flavors of a hot cup of this tea. I’ll be honest, the fruit flavors do seem to overpower the oolong a bit but I don’t mind.I made this tea pretty much the same way I’d make black tea. I put two teaspoons of the tea in a strainer and pour almost boiling water over the leaves. I tend to make 2 cups per each strainer of tea, steeping it longer the second time. I add a little sweetener and I’m good to go. (Someday I’ll probably get a gaiwan but for now this will do).
I think the juicy, fruity flavors are perfect for a hot summer day and this tea is wonderful iced.
Flavors: Fruity, Mango, Passion Fruits
I enjoy this iced but actually think I would like it better hot. The basil and lemon are both present, but are mild. The lemon is artificial but because it is more of a background note, it isn’t bad at all. Overall, I’d say nothing to write home about, but a solid choice.
No notes yet. Add one?
Flavors: Flowers, Orange Zest
TTB Tea 6: While looking for a tea for the morning in the giant pile of TTB teas, this one stood out to me, with an odd ingredient called “peach crunchy.” Looking at the other reviews, it looks as though other people were drawn in by it as well.
Dry, it definitely smells fruity. I’ve been really craving fruity teas lately, so yay! However, I’m really not tasting much besides the black tea. Perhaps this is an old batch and it’s losing some flavor? I think I’ll sit this one in the fridge for a cold steep and see if that helps any. It’s not terrible, but right now it’s not impressing me either. I was expecting much more tasty fruit flavors after reading the other reviews!
I made myself a pot of this because I wanted something sweet to help me wake up today. The first glass had a lot of coffee notes to it, and now that its cooled its almost all almondy roobios. I wish the coffee would’ve stuck around longer but I’m not angry with what I have. All in all a good tea I’m glad I have more of.
Holy wow guys. I bought this on a whim because I had seen lots of people rave about watermelon tea. Its something I would have never thought to try otherwise, even if melon in any format is usually one of my favorite things in life. I read its best served chilled so I made a cup and put it in the fridge to cool while I worked out.
This stuff is absurdly good. I am so glad I bought it. Wven at room temp the sweet and tangyness of it is just outstanding. (Why yes, an accidental couch nap did occur, I blame the work out) I will definitely be looking for more melon teas to try out. Recommendations welcome.
Oh my, was this ever good! I made a cup for Mr.K after he got off work. He typically doesn’t choose flavored teas, preferring pu-erh and oolongs but today he chose this so I made up a cup. He asked for it no sugar, as typical and was disappointed when it tasted like “somebody put a dash of coffee in his tea.” I took it back from him, tasted it and decided it would benefit from some sugar. He okayed it, I returned to the kitchen to add the sugar. I tasted first before taking it to him and opined that it would greatly benefit from a splash of milk. Surprisingly, he also agreed to this and allowed it, but reiterated just a splash. Well, that splash made it. This ended up being a delicious, creamy dessert tea. Totally yummy!
