drank Kiwi Lime Ginger by Tea Forte

smelled great out of the package, loved the vibrant lime. After steeping, even the smell was off putting, and it tasted just like it. The lime only comes thru slightly at the end, and it’s overwhelming with ginger (not a huge fan of ginger), overall I’m not sure If I’ll be able to finish the cup and defiantly won’t be re-purchasing.

drank Blueberry Merlot by Tea Forte
7 tasting notes

I meant to steep this for the recommended 5 min, but I accidentally steeped it for 7 min. This tea smelled wonderful out of the bag, like sweet blueberries and just a hint of earthy sage. After brewing for 7 min, I was surprised how dark this brewed. I have never seen a tea brew this dark luscious red color, it was beautiful and made me want to drink it right away. At first sip you definitely taste the blueberries and maybe a bit of cherry and then later you catch a bit of sage and rosemary. I like the flavor combinations a lot, but I didn’t like the tart taste at the end. About half way thru the cup I decided to put a little sugar in it and wow, that made a big difference. It took the tea from a 5 to a 8 right away. This has a nice thick mouth feel, I really enjoyed it.

After trying it with some sugar I think I will probably buy it someday. I love the deep dark red color and can’t help but think it is chalked full of anti-oxidents from the berries.

First smell after brewing this tea, it’s a very pale yellow/ green color and it smells very earthy like grass and artichokes. The taste is very smooth, the mouth feel is very nice. Tastes sweet and just like artichokes to me with a bit of an acidic aftertaste.

It has a very authentic cherry flavor and the dried honey adds just the right bit of sweetness and flavor. You can defiantly taste the chamomile and it blends with the cherry flavor quite nice. The box says it has toasted almonds, I can smell a hit of almonds but I can’t really taste it. Overall it’s a nice tea, easy to drink I might buy it again.

I loved this tea from the minute I opened the box. I drink this tea with a hint of cream and a tsp of sugar and it is so comforting and enjoyable. The first couple of days I had this I was craving all day long and had about 2-3 cups per day.

I really enjoyed this tea. I love peppermint teas but they are a bit sharp to me sometime. This one has a beautiful soft vanilla finish which tames the tea and balances the flavors out

I have always enjoyed tea, but not all the time and only ones I’d find at the grocery store, I never even knew there was a whole tea world out there beyond Albertsons :) I recently discovered Teavana and I went a little crazy, ever since I’ve been a little obsessed and drinking tea everyday with wanting to try more teas and learning about them, I’m so glad I found Steepster, now I have someone to talk about tea with :)
