drank Wild Blueberry by Tealish
1196 tasting notes

So I had this while running around Toronto yesterday and I was sad to say I wasn’t impressed. It was tasty at first, but the true test of a rooibos for me is if it can stay in my travel mug and not go weird and this one failed. It tasted a bit like blueberry, but soon enough it was a bit “I’mma let you finish, but hibiscus is the best tea ingredient of all time!” Blegh. Why? Why ruin delicious teas with hibiscus? Ever since the Hibiscus Raspberry coffee cherry mess, hibiscus just makes my stomach turn. I’ll finish out this bag and keep a close eye on the steep time, but I don’t think I’ll restock it.

Boiling

Thanks, QueenofTarts for sending this my way! I enjoy this tea…to a point. The beginning of the sip is amazing, but the end just…ruins it for me. It weirds me out. I don’t think it’s something I’d search out once it’s gone, but it’ll be no hardship to finish what I have! Thanks again!

They were right on this one! It does make an amazing iced tea! Hot, for me, the flavors go “Ooooh, berries…blegh chamomile….mmm mint!” and it leaves you with this amazingly tingly note. Iced, though, it reverses. At first, it tastes like the sun tea mom used to make with a sprig of fresh mint thrown in for flavor. You almost forget about the berries until they surprise you, mixing with the chamomile to create something delicious. It is wonderful, I’m so glad I made a pitcher of it!

Iced

drank Strawberry Fields by Tealish

This is a tasty tea, but it’s just that. It’s not mind blowing, it’s not juicy, it’s not amazing, it’s just tasty. It’s light a refreshing and one I’m glad I’ve tried, but this 50 g needs to do a lot more to impress me before I decide to replace it. I drank about half the mug and got distracted. 15 minutes later I started this review and honestly couldn’t remember what it tasted like. So….tasty, but forgettable.

Had to have another cup. I just had to! When I was a kid, whenever we went on vacation, my Dad would always hunt down an old penny candy store and get fireballs, which were essentially cinnamon jaw breakers. He’d get a pound of them and eat them like they were going out of style. He always shared, and my younger brother and I would each get one and a paper towel. Whoever could keep it in their mouth the longest won…I never won. XD. This tea brings up that memory and I’m grateful for it because it was a memory I had forgotten.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
