The Tea Set sent me a FREE SAMPLE for my birthday. When they first emailed me about it they told me they were sending me one of their Organic Sexy Samples. When I got it in the mail yesterday there was a small designer tin in the shade of a light mustard yellow…very cute! There was no name/flavor on it but on their website the teas are in color coded tins…so my Yellow Tin MEANS Herbal. I then matched up the loose leaf in the tin with the blends on the site and the Secret Elixir For Wellness Tea was the closest match. So…here goes!

I’m totally jazzed about the FREE BIRTHDAY SAMPLE, btw…awesome idea for a tea company!!! Kudos to TTS!

The dry blend smells mostly herbal with slight fruit undertones. The coloring after infused is a purplish-pinkish-red. The liquid after infusion smells fruity.

Based on the color and scent after infusion I was afraid…Hibiscus??? Oye! I think that’s Hibiscus! Eeeek! But it’s actually not bad…yes, it’s a fruity herbally tarty type but it’s not too much to handle. I’m drinking it HOT right now but I think it would be brilliant ICED.

As for the after taste I’m getting an apple likeness…actually, it reminds me of cutting up apples and putting lemon juice on the slices so the “apple-meat” doesn’t darken…

This is pretty good…and this is coming from someone who usually doesn’t like fruity/tarty/herbals…I think it’s because it’s not over the top! Thank The Tea Gods!!!!!

Happy Birthday (early or belated). My best friends and I have a rule that gifts and wishes three weeks either way still count. Very liberating not to have to remember the exact date.

I’m all for starting the celebrating 3 weeks early or continuing 3 weeks later- but remembering the exact date is always nice:) Today is my someone special’s mom’s birthday and the 15th was my moms. At least now we know what people do in June lol.

I like how the tins are color coded too- makes it easy for just grabbing when you can’t make up your mind what you want. Some times I know I want a green or white but can’t decide what exactly.

I’m the same way! Almost every morning I start with a BLACK or FLAVORED Black and then change it up after that as the day goes on. Sometimes I say to myself…GOODNESS!!!! I am really craving a WHITE or a flavored GREEN…so yeah, I can totally relate…
