I gotta say that I’m kind of disappointed in this tea since it had so many high ratings. There is just this artificially bubble gum sweet smell and taste in it that I usually associate with soy lecithin, which I’ve learned is something I can’t stand in teas. For example Celestial seasons uses it in their lemon zinger. It’s not on the ingredient list, but maybe it’s used as a preservative for this tea? I could smell it as soon as I opened the package, but I was hoping it wouldn’t be in the taste. I’m going to give the rest of the packet to my sister who tried it the other night and liked it.
When it’s hot, I can’t taste much else over the lecithin taste. bleh! As it cools, I start to get some cinnamon in the taste and a little of the raisins as an aftertaste, which is nice but not enough to make me happy. I wish I could get past the bubble gummy aspect of this, but I can’t.

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
