Gah! I cannot wait til Dec 1 to start using my 24 days of tea. I’m excited to do a tea review everyday :).
Anywho, today during my lunch break I picked this out of the cupboard at work since I wanted a green tea but there were no other options. I usually don’t care for fruit flavored with green tea, but figured I’ll try it anyways. I made this tea crudely- poured hot water in a cup, mixed with cold water, then steeped the bag for about 30 seconds.
What can I say? Cheaper green tea with artificial fruit flavoring. It’s not bitter, and it is drinkable, but the flavoring could have been left out. Don’t think I’ll be having this one again…
Cold enough that flavor takes a backseat to temperature; I don’t care as long as it’s hot. Thus, a good day to drink this no-name addition to a Hickory Farms gift basket. Nothing to write home about, but it’s not terrible. First adjective that came to mind was “tawny.” I’m not sure I’ve ever had tawny tea before, but if I did, this would be it.
The one thing about being a tea junkie … you turn into the dumping ground (ahem! recipient!) of all kinds of teas that co-workers and non-teaists don’t drink. In this case, some little packets of gift basket teas that evidently were part of a Hickory Farms goodie assortment.
This isn’t bad; the vanilla flavor is strong enough to counter the fact that the tea itself is a meh no-name black tea. A little creamer next time will probably make it palatable for office use.
