A big thank you to Erin for sharing this with me. It was doubly appreciated since it is impossible to get anymore.

Knowing that this tea is older, I knew that some of the notes would taste differently than they would’ve before. Curiously the dry leaf smelled like . . . children’s vitamins. You know, those ones that are supposed to be orange flavoured but actually don’t taste like anything someone would actually ever call food? Yeah, it smelled like those.

I brewed it up as per the directions, giving it a three minute steep, the lower end of the recommended spectrum. Excitedly I took my first sip and got . . . vitamins. It tastes exactly like it smells, complete with that powder taste that I always got after the vitamin. I almost thought that Fred and Barney were sitting in front of me in pink and purple pill form.

I am grateful to Erin for letting me try this one, however even if it was still available, I don’t think that I would buy it.

I miss the Flintstones vitamins!

Tina S.

Don’t they still make them? I know there are chewable ones!

Jessie

They totally do! My mind was blown by seeing them in Walmart a little while ago. But until then, and this note, I had totally forgot about them.

DaisyChubb

They do still make them! They also make gummy ones and sour gummy ones, but the classic are the best. Don’t ask how I know this. >_>

Tina S.

Why don’t they make gummy vitamins for adults? They’d be so much more . . . inviting. hates taking vitamins

Missy

I seen some gummys for adults at costco I believe. If you look around you’ll find them. :D Right here I really feel like I need to say, " If you build it, they will come."

gmathis

Actually, they do… (for adults). I think they’re called Vita-Craves. Not sure about their availability in your part of the world…

Tina S.

I’m in Canada so I may be able to find them. We tend to get most of the things in the States. Except for Cherry 7Up. That I wish we got up here!

Bio

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
