Actually had this earlier today as well as having it as my last work cup. Sweet, light, and fruity. Delish!

This bag is back to normal. Not sure why/how that last cup ended up tasting so different from all the other times I’ve had it, but this is back to the way it’s supposed to taste!

Okay, today I’m tasting the nettle, and I’m not so sure I’m enjoying it as much. Seems more herbal and supplement-like. Perhaps this bag is off/has a different concentration of herbs than the other did?

So I’m not completely out of this tea…I have a few bags here at work. I accidentally ended up brewing it for about 12 minutes. I know better than to not set an alarm. This doesn’t suffer from overbrewing, though.

When I got this out to make a small pot tonight, I went to pull out two bags. There were only 3 left. So having a slightly bigger pot, and have one less tea in my cupboard.

I love the key lime paired with the hibiscus. It’s sweet and not too tart. I’ll probably end up getting some more, but may end up getting the Vanilla Apple version first (since it’s the only one that I haven’t had).

Mental note: Don’t take sip immediately after eating apple cinnamon graham crackers. It’s not at all pleasant.

Lively and tart; you can definitely taste the lime. Republic of Tea has done a great job with this line. After the tangerine, this one’s my favorite. I brew for 10 minutes.

I love blood oranges. I especially love sharing them with people who have never had them before. The comments on the appearance or on the name are priceless, but everyone loves the taste.

This tea has the distinct citrus taste of blood oranges; coupled with the cinnamon, it makes for a crisp, sweet cup that’s perfect for a fall morning.

I just wish it were fall already.

Went out to get some fresh air and it started snowing like crazy. Ended up slipping and bumping my knees, so I headed back before I really got started. On the plus side, took a travel mug of this with me and it kept me warm and toasty.

I really love this tea. Good black tea with a sweet peach taste.

I decided to leave some of the loose leaves in my cup today and have a little spontaneous tea-leaf reading. (What you’re doing while sipping the tea really effects the meaning of the reading – like this one focused a bit on the emails I had been typing while drinking the cup.) The overall reading was unexpected, but not surprising after the last couple of years. A pleasant experience, all together.

Mixed with half a Fresca iced. Tangerine + grapefruit = not so good. Going to have the rest of the pot hot and neat.
