I wouldn’t call this a fruit tea, it tastes more like the chestnuts and biscuits to me! Maybe a little bit of floral fruit, but I added cream which can take down flavours like orange blossom.

So delicious.

I would like more, please and thank you.

hearts to Shmiracles for sharing it with me!

Thanks Schmiracles for sending me a sample of this tea!

This was also a miss for me. There was flavour to this one, but not very strong and again I couldn’t tell what flavours were in it. The description lists quite a few flavours but I didn’t really get any of those. I still have enough for one more cup so I will try this one again with milk and agave or honey. Honey makes everything better :)

This tea is.. quite interesting. It doesn’t smell like the tea that I would pick up. It smells very fruity and fruity black teas just.. don’t sit well in my stomach.
Steeping and it still has that weird medicine-y smell that I associate all fruity black blends with.
Oh. Not good. It just tastes like a weak black tea with weak flavours of weak fruits. I decided to re-add my leaves for just a couple more seconds to see if I could pull a bit more flavour, but it’s just starting to go bitter. I’ll probably just use the rest of the leaves as a cold brew or sipdown and share them with my roommates.

I know, I got this tea from shmiracles last month and I loooove trying new teas! But with that, you’ll also try teas that just aren’t for you.
This tea was good enough to finish the cup, but now I have leaves that I’ll just give to friends. At least it’s going to a better home :)

JustJames

true… it is the responsible thing to do, to rehouse an unwanted tea =0)
