Where has this tea been my whole life? I shall never be without it again.

The plantain flavor is perfect: just like a fully ripe, baked plantain. The coconut adds a tropical note. There’s a slight, sweet grassy note at the end of a sip. I plan on getting the plain Raw Green Bush since I’ve never had raw rooibos to compare this to.

I brew for 10 minutes.

Boiling 8 min or more

This has berries in it? Are you sure? Smells like vanilla cookies to me…tastes like cookies. Perhaps there’s a hint of apple…no, not really. Just vanilla cookie goodness.

Green tea vanilla cookie sounds good, even if it was supposed to be berries!

Wanted something fruity today, but not overly sweet.

Made a pot of this today. A perfect choice with a dark chocolate cookie and finishing my to-do list.

I was given this tea in loose leaf form and I absolutely love it- I can brew it both strong and weak and it tastes fine either. I haven’t tried it cold yet, but I am sure it will be lovely!

And another one out of the cupboard! I do really enjoy this one, and it generally calms me down. Which is something I really, really need for the next, oh, 40 minutes or so.

Cherry seems to be stronger when brewed at 3 minutes. Shorter steeping time = less time waiting for tea = happy Jaime.

This is okay. I’m not a fan of the artificial peach flavor… and I tasted it in this blend. Not bad but not the best either. I didn’t add any sweetener to it either.

Ah, done with the conference for the day. Back in the room in my pjs (yes, I realize it’s a bit early, but I’m okay with that). Having my last bag of this. Very sad to see this go, but that just means there’s more room in my cupboard!!!
