25 Tasting Notes
This tea came with the flashed chilled double pack of pitchers from Costco. I actually liked this tea a lot. I just cold brewed it overnight in the pitcher in the refrigerator. It was a nice amber color and had just enough mango or tropical flavor without tasting artificial. I added a few drops of stevia to my large glass and it was just right. I will make this again and enjoy it even more when the weather is warmer
I got a double pack of iced chilled tea makers from Costco. LOVE these!The tea infuser is very fine so nothing gets thru the filter and the filter is very long so it goes all the way to the bottom of the pitcher. One of the pitchers comes with the tea infuser the other comes with a fruit infuser which I haven’t tried yet. The size of this pitcher makes it fit perfect on the side of the refrigerator.
So I received my teadrops and my daughter received hers that I sent as a gift. The packaging was great-comes in a little wooden box that holds 8 individual star shaped teas. She loves tea and loves trying all flavors. She is really on the go (teacher at an outdoor science school so spends her whole day outside) She was thrilled with how easy it was to use and just added it to her go cup along with boiling water. She loved the cardamon flavor and wasn’t put off by the sediments at the bottom of the container. I too, thought the packaging was wonderful. I love cardamon so I enjoyed the tea flavor. I added a splash of milk and a drop of stevia. I used a mug so occasionally stirred my tea and did still end up with some sediments but it doesn’t bother me (I drink french press coffee so am use to sediments on the bottom of my cup). This really does make a nice gift for a tea drinking friend or as a sweet gift to yourself. If you are into the whole tea process and meditative steeping this may not be “your cup of tea” but it is a fun, novel approach to tea.
I got my JusTea order from the IndieGogo campaign!! Opened the bag and it came with 3 separate samples. NICE! Opened the 2oz. of tea and the smell was WONDERFUL! Brewed up a cup and was really happy. Smells even better after brewed. A really nice morning cup of tea. Made my son a cup and added a small amount of milk for his cup and he loved it. I was so glad that I bought this tea and helped this small startup company that is helping the farmers in Kenya rise above poverty. On Sept. 16th they are launching another crowdfunding campaign to try to reach their original target. I will be buying more of this as a regular in my cupboard!
