From ESP Emporium

Winter solstice, also called midwinter, is the pendant to midsummer and symbolizes hope: it marks the longest night of the year after which the days slowly become longer! The period of the Zodiac signs of Capricorn to Gemini. However, since the four elements of the twelve astrological zodiac signs – air, earth, fire and water – comprise the second half of the year, we are certain that the warm flavors of caramelized pomegranate in combination with the wintry spices are also a real indulgence and bright spot for the signs of Cancer to Sagittarius! The stars are in your favor!

Ingredients: apple pieces, orange peel, hibiscus blossoms, blackberry leaves, almonds, carrot shreds, star aniseed cinnamon, flavoring, silver linden blossoms, freeze-dried cranberry slices, pomegranate arils, rose petals.

Serving Size: 1-2 level tsp./6oz serving

Brew Temp: 203 to 212 F

Brew Time: 8 to 10 Minutes

Really? No one else has logged this? Hm. Well first, thank you to Azzrian for this sample. Whatever i say about this tea, I am always grateful when people share so generously like Azzrian always does. :) At first I had intended to save this for winter because of the name but I really wanted an herbal and this was the only one I had at the office today.

It tastes exactly like vomit. Vomit all mixed up with bile and stomach acids. How does fruit and spice combine into this horrid flavor? I have no idea. I had to dump this.

Such a pretty tea though! It just wasn’t for me.

Azzrian

OMG really??? I don’t think I have even tried it yet but NOW I have to brew some up RIGHT away! I am sniffing it in the bag and it smells really yummy but OMG this sounds horrid! I have had a few taste this way to me from Adagio before so I believe you but dang lol so sorry to do that to you!
Going to steep some now.

Azzrian

Its cooling down a bit now but I smell that same smell that I did in that Adagio tea I hated and described in the same manner – then Kittenna wanted to try it and she felt the same way. This is very similar in smell. Will update after sipped.

Mercuryhime

Azzrian, every tea you’ve ever shared with me has been very tasty. I was beginning to think we had twin taste buds but then I had this tea… Haha. But if you haven’t tried this yet then maybe we are still taste twins after all! We need a yucky tea now and again to remind us how awesome our others teas are so it’s all good! I hope you do end up liking it though since you probably bought a good amount of it. :/

Azzrian

LOL I have about 40 grams of it still but its a heavy tea since it has a lot of “stuff” in it. I think I will suffer though. I was expecting it to be worse sure but I don’t think it will be a re-order. If it were not for that vanilla flavor I am getting I probably would not drink it. Lets just say this is an ODDITEA!
LOL

Wow, I hope I never ever have to write a review describing tea this way. Egads!

Mercuryhime

I’m very curious what the product testers thought this tasted like because if it tasted like vomit or even vanilla-y vomit, they probably would never have tried to sell it. It does smell deceptively fruity and tasty though. Sneaky tea!

I guess I will go ahead and review this one and again Mercuryhime I am so sorry this was so bad for you! I have indeed had very similar flavors before that made me feel exactly the way you do. This one is not bad for me though. There is a saving grace in here and it seems to be much better as it cools.
I get a hint of vanilla somewhere in all of this mix – and there is a LOT in this mix. So much so I had to dig around in the bag to get enough equal amounts of ingredients!
I almost wonder if you got a good mix Mercuryhime I would ask if you want another sample and I will be sure to get all of the varied items in a second sample but I imagine you are DONE with this one lol.

Mercuryhime

I am indeed done with this tea but thanks for offering. Haha I’m glad you liked it more than I did!

Azzrian

LOL yeah I figured so.

Backlog:

I didn’t dislike this quite as much as some of the others who tried it. I liked the touch of spice. I’d rather there not be hibiscus in it, but, I’m glad that it isn’t a heavy amount of hibiscus in this blend. I like the blend of the fruits – I could taste the pomegranate, the orange and the cranberry. I found myself wishing I could taste more star anise.

Overall, it’s an interesting blend. Not my favorite, for sure, but I didn’t hate it.
