My first review on Steepster! Hopefully first of many…
I initially got this tea because it sounded like one of the more “normal” teas that Samovar offered, and after trying many of their more exotic options, I decided to give this a try as well.
Let’s see how I manage to express my experience with this… They say that this is the perfect ex-coffee drinkers convert tea that helps them wake up in the morning. I’d say I’d have to agree. This is pretty similar (but obviously different, as what would be the point if it tasted like coffee) and it does give a little bit of a kick, but not too much. I drink it black, as I have been doing with pretty much all of the teas I have been trying. I tried adding sugar a few times to some of them but I decided no matter how little I added, the sugar would somehow overpower the taste of the tea. I want to taste the tea, not the sugar.
Anyways, for $12 for a large can, this is a great deal especially because you can re-steep it a few times throughout the day. I think I can usually manage a good 4 steeps out of it before it starts to get thin. It’s a good alternative tea for me in the morning when I feel that I’ve had too much Maiden’s Ecstasy during the week. ;)
