Meh! This is ok. Nothing special. Sort of fruity but certainly not as flavorful as 52teas’ blueberry danish or strawberry zaglibione. This is not too tart, not too sweet, maybe best described as “dry”..like “dry” champagne. I am on this quest to eliminate sugar from my diet soo no extra sugar allowed. And this tea w/o sugar is just not that great.

I feel you – part of what motivated my tea explorations was trying to eliminate sugar (so, trying to find teas that taste good plain). If you like cinnamon, definitely try Harney’s Hot Cinnamon Spice – it’s the sweetest un-sweetened black tea I’ve found!

Bio

Just a few months ago the only tea I drank was hot lipton tea at work, an occasional mint tea, and sweet iced tea.. Then my daughter got me some loose leaf teas for Christmas and then, my tea addiction began…..

And what better way to get lots of dessert flavors w/o the calories?

I prefer my tea with a tinge of sugar. Is that cheating? But to me , the combination of sugar and tea is like salt and cooking- both bring out the natural flavors.

My tea drinking has evolved into a set routine: a breakfast blend in the AM, some flavored blacks during the day, late afternoon or evening flavored green/white, herbal (usually spicy, chai inspired) at night.

Not into unflavored greens/whites yet. Just started appreciating unflavored blacks and am thinking that smoky teas may become my favorite…
When I am not drinking tea, I am working as an engineer, reading, watching some of the better TV shows (like Damages and Breaking Bad), practicing my yoga, cooking, gardening, and spoiling my two miniature poodles (Coco and Timmy)…
