Now HERE is a tea I can drink all day long without getting the least bit tired of it. Or at least that’s how I feel right now as I drink my first ever cup. I’m so glad that I discovered Steepster in recent weeks and have started reading reviews before committing to 100g+ of a tea just because it smells nice. I probably would have passed this one up for Cool Cactus, had I not read the reviews and been pointed in the opposite direction.
I’ve always considered myself a green tea kind of gal, but recently I’ve been developing a love affair with flavoured black teas and straight oolongs. Lately I’ve found myself in need of some soothing comfort, rather than the invigorating crispness all my favourite green teas provide. It kind of makes me wonder if my preferences will switch back once summer makes an appearance again. Either way, I’ve enjoyed refining my tastes (not to mention making new discoveries) while working to decrease my absurdly large tea collection.
I’m glad I decided to buy a small sample of this. I came home with 25g , but will be buying more the next time I stop by the store. The base tea is soothing and in no way bitter. I also find that the berries add just enough sweetness to hold my interest without seeming too candy-like to drink in the morning. I don’t usually add anything to my tea, but I feel that this one is particularly well-balanced on its own. This is definitely my kind of blend.
