This tea is delicious. Fava Tea is 2 for 2!

The tea in the bag is gorgeous: giant chunks of carrot, shredded coconut, whole raisins, cloves, and cardamom pods. The tea in the bag smells like carrot cake. It brews up to a light orange color.

Once brewed, guess what it tastes like? Carrot cake! or maybe it’s a giant carrot muffin. I love it.

I really didn’t think this was going to taste like carrot cake when I ordered it. I expected to be disappointed, but it’s really tasty. It’s actually a nice mid-morning tea since it has that carrot muffin quality to it.

This is another NecessiTEAS, Tea Guys, and Tea Largo Tea. I’m finding the rebranding of teas to be increasingly irritating.

I actually like it because it gives me another source. NecessiTeas doesn’t always have samples of everything I want to try. And sometimes shipping prices vary. So, I feel it works out for me. As long as they keep the pics the same, I can figure it out.

Kristin

Oh, and it also allows me to try things with less shipping… for example, the order I just got had something that seems uniquely Fava Tea (the butternut rooibos), something from Neccesiteas (the carrot cake), and something that appears to be from Rishi (Blueberry rooibos)… with one shipping fee. There are no tea shops anywhere near my house so I have to order online. The shipping costs sometimes stop me. If I only wanted one thing from each, I just wouldn’t order at all.

I have no problem w/ the cross selling, but I think the brand names should be consistant. DEFINITELY agree w/ you on the sample and price points that you make:)
