This tea is pretty light in colour and the flavour is mild as well, but with each sip, you can still catch that amazing dry smell as well. It is kinda messy in my steeper so I think I will follow the advice o a fellow Steepsterite and sac it. It wasn’t too bad in the steeper but I can see how it might make it hard to clean in some infusers.

I think that I might get the special tin of this. It’s not amazing, but it is pretty good, and also (and this is important) is a nice comforting and cozy yet caffeine free tea that I can drink later in the evenings without fear of being kept awake potentially. Right now I have amaretto and orange blossom as my hot caffeine free teas, and some tof the herbals that I find are better iced as well…so this really does have a place in that evening comfort hot tea realm.

Wondering what the reusability of the steeped fruits is say in yogurt or oatmeal.

Can’t wait to see more reviews on this and see what people think.

ohh this review has intrigued me! I like the idea of using a Tsac and just letting it sit in the cup as you sip. I’ll have to try it ASAP

For green rooibos, I always let the bag steep for the length of the cup – using a filter bag with loose tea, I mean. I love doing that with chais too, so the last couple sips are spicy city!

I think that it is the dates that got a bit mushy. It’s not too hard to clean the steeper, but the bags are easier for this, I think.

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are.

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty, and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Uh, guess that’s it.
