I was waiting to try this one from the Christmas sampler pack. Sounded good, but no. It smells and tastes like I mixed my black tea with flat Sprite. The aroma is nice, reminds me of pie :-), but the taste is almost non-existent.

Cofftea

This makes me sad- Key lime makes me think of my grandma so I was hoping this’d be good. But then again if it’s too strong it’d be like hot lime juice and that’d burn my throat.

Peggie Bennett

Your poor throat! I was disappointed by this too, I love lime. If it helps any, now I have this limey aftertaste in my throat, not as fun as it sounds.

Peggie Bennett

I just wonder if I’m missing something with this tea…. Well, I still have a few bags left, so we’ll see how it goes.

Cofftea

Maybe it needs a time or temp adjustement?

Peggie Bennett

Maybe. I will experiment and report back, Captain! :-)

Cofftea

Also, weigh your bag. It may be insanely light. I’ve had bags ~1.4g when I like my cuppa 2.25g/6oz water. I never thought about that til someone actually did it and stated the weight in their tasting note.

Peggie Bennett

I will keep that in mind and experiment with that as well, thanks for the tip!

Cofftea

No problem:) Bagged teas are convenient, but even if the tea is very good quality (some aren’t), I still prefer to steep loose or at least fill my own bags because then leaf amount is another parameter I can control.

Peggie Bennett

I’ve been wanting to fill my own bags, and finally there was someone at the coffee shop that told me where they get their bags from so I can order, but then she sold me a tea ball! So I’m going to try that out and see how the mess is. But that tea sampler I got for Christmas was too good a deal to pass up, 12 different flavors, 8 bags each, all for $10. I figure there are some I won’t like and it’s not a complete waste.

Cofftea

Ok where was that sampler from? lol. Adagio sells their’s 100/$3.75.

Peggie Bennett

What? No way! I’ve never seen big sampler packs at Adagio for that price? No wait, the tea sampler pack was $10, American. :-) I thought it was a decent price since I went to the website and they were selling it for $15 there.

Cofftea

Oops, my mistake $3 even not $3.75. Although I wouldn’t suggest making that your entire order- paying more for shipping than your order wouldn’t make sense lol.:)

Cofftea

Again oops, I meant they sell fillable bags for 100/$3, not sampler packs. Although a lot of their individual sample tins are $2.

Peggie Bennett

I did see that, my birthday is coming up and I think I am going to make it a tea birthday! Gifts from Adagio, Lupicia, Teavana (because it’s local) and Zen Tara!

We got the same Christmas present!

Unfortunately until my samples from Teavivre and Teasta and my order from DAVIDsTEA arrive, I’m stuck to coffee and my parent’s somewhat limited and poor tea collection :/

I picked this out of a large sampler pack thingy that they got around Christmastime and I thought that this tea sounded kind of interesting. I haven’t ever had a lime flavored tea before, and I thought that the choice to mix it with black tea instead of green (which makes more sense to me, at least) was kind of interesting.

Another pleasant surprise from my parent’s tea cupboard (I should probably start having more faith in them, lol). The lime wasn’t actually a forefront, though you can definitely smell it. The black tea was just a regular old bagged Orange Peoke flavor, and the lime kind of added a nice acidity to it that I found enjoyable. I won’t be purchasing a larger size of this, but it was a nice treat.
