Let us know if you find out – that sounds nummy! :D

SoccerMom

Yes let us know I will need teabags for summer travels.

Rabs

Thank you so much! It’s been added to my list :)

AmazonV

There should be some here….soon? just placed the order, would you both like a sample before you jump all in on a box?

Rabs

That would be beyond amazing! I’ve never had an “instant” tea like that before and I sort of balked at how big the box looked. Let me know if you’d like to swap for something of mine :)

AmazonV

UPDATE: my credit card was stolen, after using that site…..anyway the tea arrived and i hope to be sending it out soon to a few people – so look elsewhere not there!

Rabs

Thank you so much for the update! I made a note on the bookmarked page and moved it to my “NO” folder for teas. Sorry you had the bad experience :(

A HUGE thank you to AmazonV for sending me samples of these teas!!!!!

I had just arrived home from a few errands including donating mah blood (O neg woot!) when I checked my mailbox and found a package awaiting me. Squeee!!! I went inside and opened it up and almost fainted from a combination of both AmazonV’s generosity and the blood loss. ;) There was also a funny handwritten note on a beautiful butterfly postcard (I loves butterflies!).

With much contained excitement I opened this tea and gave it a wiff. Here’s where AmazonV may be able to attest to the fact that I have the oddest scent associations: I smelled graham crackers. Like, if you took a honey graham cracker and schmeared it with some generic fruit spread. Color me even more intrigued!

I boiled water and used my large 16 oz mug to mix up this very fragrant concoction. Wow — the smell is even more intensly sugary-sweet/graham crackery! Then the first sip: woah! That’s some sweet stuff! It’s been years since I’ve had full-out sugary Kool-Aid (is that even still available?), but that’s the closest thing that I can liken this tea to. I wonder if it’s possible to ice this sort of tea? It doesn’t taste graham-crackery, but that smell still lingers. I can’t say that I’ve had a straight-up date before, so I can’t say how datey this is.

Then a taste-assosciation occurs to me and it sticks in my mind for the rest of the cup: envelope paste. Like when envelope manufacturers changed from the bitter yuck to the sweeter taste in the paste. Only much much sweeter with a bit of fruit thrown in. I’m in this limbo land of “sweet yum” and “errrr…”

Ultimately I’m very grateful to have gotten a chance to try this tea before buying a large box of it. I would eventually drink it all, but it’d take me a long while. I’d have to be really really craving something uber-sweet. Oh — and it was great in helping me feel better post donation: all those vitamins and stuff giving me a recovery boost! :D NE

Aha! Miss Jacqueline — I always suspected we were similar types ::badoom ching!::

And I totally agree AmazonV: afternoon or later in the day in the summertime.

Yay! High roller last night. Must have needed the boost after my two 11 hour shifts. This tea was quite a curiousity. I’ve never had dates or date tea. Also it looked quite different from other instant teas i’ve tried. It isn’t a powdered instant tea it’s a crystalized instant tea. After brewing it smelled of honey and fruit and a little bit of black tea. I took just a few sips of this brewed as it is sooo sugary I just couldn’t drink it. I passed along to my husband who ha it gone in a few sips. If he weren’t diabetic I’d find where we could get more. He liked it so much it would be great to get it for him as he hardly enjoys my teas. I’m not sure how to rate this one yet.

Thanks Rabs for the chance to roll the dice and play the game.

Rabs

This was courtesy of the very generous AmazonV who sent me extra packets to be part of the Geek packages :D She’s the bestest!

AmazonV

aww thanks Rabs

Too bad this was too sweet for you – how much water did you use? I had to use about 16+ ounces to drink it and i love sugar!

Meghann M

I used 16oz as well. It had a good flavor, and maybe I’ll let it cool more next time. I usually use 4-5 small rock sugar crystals in my 16oz mug. Just enough to bring out some flavored teas fruity goodness. I’m more fond of sugar when it’s in my baked goods than in beverages. I think it’s because I grew up with diet pop my sugar taste buds have been harmed:(
