I’m actually impressed that they got the taste of huckleberries in this tea. Not only that but they used huckleberries in the ingredients. I always find it strange when a tea company calls a tea something and then doesn’t bother to even use the name in the tea. At least in these cases with fruits and berries. That being said it’s not my cup o tea. It’s good but just not one I would run to every day.

drank Caramel Apple by Market Spice

It’s good but not great. Not the best caramel flavor, I think. Much better cold. I’ll have to drink this one a few more times to be sure.

drank Vanilla Chai Tea by Bigelow

The spices and black tea are there but the vanilla is hiding. Perhaps i steeped too long? Hmmm no. I did just about 4 minutes but the bag says 4. It was much better at 3 minutes. Its not exotic like they claim. I love teas with vanilla usually but this one just isn’t doing it.

drank Hibiscus Punch by Tea Source
341 tasting notes

Received this from a TTB. I’m liking it quite a bit more then I thought I would. In fact, the longer I let it steep the better it is. Maybe it’s just because all the other flavors come out more to settle the hibiscus. Speaking of hibiscus, when I first steeped the tea it was super strong _. But the flavors have now melded into a wild and sour mix. I like! It could also be that I kinda accidentally dumped a table spoon full into the brewer that is bringing out such an intense flavor…

Flavors: Apple, Fruit Punch, Hibiscus

Preparation
145 °F / 62 °C 8 min or more

drank Guava Cadabra by DAVIDsTEA
341 tasting notes

After having the wild colored guava in Hawai’i I had to try this. It would be kinda cool if that pink color would stay so you could see it in the dry pieces. The water is a lovely royal red. My first sip in the first 4 mins was better then the second at 7ish mins. I fear this tea is somewhat ruined by tye hibiscus. I’m going to try to dig it out for the next cup. Minus the hibiscus it’s a lovely tea. I knew I’d like it the moment i opened the bag and smelled guava.

On a side note, I am drinking this while enjoying a Godiva cake truffle chocolate flight. So nummy.

Preparation
8 min or more 1 tsp

Holy bitterness Batman! I barley steeped it for 2 mins and bam! so bitter. xp Drink it with milk indeed. But I have no milk so I shall use lemon. I know I’ve had this tea before and it was fine. But its so bitter this time that I can’t drink it. The lemon did’t help.

What a nice tea! You can really taste caramel. Thought for sure that the rooibos would overpower this one but instead the first flavor to emerge is caramel followed by the smooth rooibos. Wish they were still selling it

Airplane Tea
Not gonna lie; if I wasn’t nursing I wouldn’t be drinking this. Probably would have never looked at it either. It’s a weird mix of things but I think it helps. The spearmint seems to stand out the most w/ a hint of lemon verbena.

Earthy & smooth. Very earthy. Reminds me of a forest in the dead of winter. No snow. Just brown earth and bare trees. Actually, this tastes like the smell of one of those bare trees when you break a branch. ..

What a lovely smell. Almost matches the flavor. Speaking of flavor I did not like this hot. The sencha overpowered everything. But as it cooled off the grape came out nicely.

Preparation

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it flavored. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss, but honeybush is better. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
