Another sample from my “this was on sale so it’s okay” order from Caraway.

I almost bought a full 4 oz of this during the sale, but I told myself to just buy a sample .. and I’m glad I did.

First of all, the tea smells ….. weird. Artificial, maybe? I’m not sure what I was expecting since the title could be many things, but certainly not this. I think I was expecting something more creamy. Also, I noticed the mate looked a little more different than normal. More twiggy. At least I think it was the mate I was looking at.

As for the taste? It’s weird too. I don’t know how to describe it. It does have a little bit of a creamy taste, but it’s not quite what I was hoping for. The tea is better colder than hot. The tea isn’t bad – it’s certainly drinkable. I’m just not as crazy about it as I have been with other flavored mates I’ve had.

Maybe I’ll brew a little more, but I think I’m going to save the rest of this for a tea swap since someone might enjoy it more.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a twiggy mate.

I’m wondering what else it could be then? The other ingredients don’t seem to fit the “twig” description.

Hmm. I got a sample of this one too. Wasn’t sure what it would be like.

I remember seeing a twig in one of my teas the other day, too! It might have been this one! I don’t know what it was… something to do with their flavoring?? A tree fell in their tea stock??? This tea has an okay flavor, but it’s a little light for me.

Bio

So the short story is, a few years ago I was VERY MUCH into tea. And then a lot of things happened, and I got out of tea for a while. And now, I’m back.

To me, tea is the missing puzzle piece for my healthy lifestyle. When I drink tea I am encouraged to eat healthy and be active. I drink tea because I simply enjoy the taste, but the health aspects are just an added bonus.

I love all types of teas, although greens and oolongs tend to be my favorite. I also love a good herbal.

Unless otherwise stated, I drink my teas straight. To brew I either use my ingenuiTEA or T-Sac (for teas that don’t expand much). One of these days I might break down and buy a Breville, but I’m trying to resist..

I’m kinda strict when rating my teas. I rarely give a tea above a 95. Teas that I really like I keep in the 95-85 category. I’ve yet to give a tea 100 yet. So, if you see a tea about 95, that means I thought it was an amazing tea!
