From Zen Tea

Who does not remember grandma’s colorful, tempting garden? The large rhubarb leaves on pink, thick stalks unfolding in summer. Delicious strawberries, secretly plucked from the bush and immediately eaten. The juicy, ripe blackberries, which left colored teeth after having been secretly stolen from the bush. All these aromatic treasures of sweet and delicious fruits and berries on a colorful and appetizing fruit tea blend let the dreams of childhood live again!

Ingredients: elderberries, hibiscus blossoms, apple pieces, black currant, flavouring, freeze-dried blackberries, freeze-dried strawberry and raspberry pieces, wild strawberry leaves

Price: $10 / 100g

I got this tea awhile back.. maybe 2 oz? And I just sipped it down, didn’t last long! I’ve only made this tea iced, and tonight I needed a long steeping tea (10 minute steep uggg) while I load the dishwasher at a snail pace. It’s jiujitsu thursday and I’m super tired, got to the point where my opponent would grab me to take me down, and I’d just crumple to the floor.

Very berry – so berry, its hard to figure out whats going on, plus hibiscus thrown in there. This round? kinda blackberry mostly with a hint of raisiny notes. Hmmm, this tea is okay, a little flat but lots of berryness going on so that makes up for it a bit.

This sample was from Zen Tea. Thank you!

Holy berries, Batman! This herbal is berries through and through. The elderberries and black currant seemed to dominate, but every now and then I could taste a bit of blackberry. I could see strawberry bits in the dry tea, but I never tasted them in the infusion. The other berry flavors completely overpowered it. I would have liked to have less elderberry and more strawberry. There is also hibiscus in here, of which I am not a fan. It was not overpowering, but every now and then I would get that jaw clinching tart note. So not my favorite herbal, but still a good one.

My 3rd and final sample from Zen Tea. I had to get this as a sample. Not only was it a fruit tea, but the name was just so cute. Grandma’s Garden, aawww.

I had this while I making breakfast (at 3). When I opened the packaged I was smacked in the face with so many deep berry flavors I simply couldn’t wait to try it out!

It steeped into a mauve color and smelled just as great as the leaves did. This is tea has a more prominent dark berry taste than it does sweet berries, but you can definitely taste a bit of everything in there. This is a tea that would probably be really great with some honey or agave.

This is what all of those dusty sort-of fruit teas from Celestial Seasonings wish they were. This blend does everything better: a widely varied medley of real dried fruit and hibiscus as a supporting role, not the main character. The taste is tart berry jam through and through. I’d be interested in sipping this next to a cup of that Buttered Toast tea 52Teas makes. My only complaint would be that most of the flavor dominates up front but doesn’t give much of an aftertaste. Still, I can say without hesitation that this is one of the best herbal fruit infusions I’ve had the pleasure of tasting.

This fruit has a lovely fruity and flowery aroma from the berries within. It’s the kind of scent that I could be content to just breathe in for quite a while. The taste has a splash of goodness, and a creamy sweetness to it, with a hint of tartness. I wish the taste lingered longer, though I do enjoy it while it lasts. I wouldn’t say that it’s my favourite fruit tea, but it’s certain one I’d enjoy having again (and again).

I found a small plastic bag with one pot’s worth of something labeled “Grandma’s Garden” in one of the cupboards in my parents’ house. In a Christmas themed tin, of all places. If I recall correctly, we got it from a little tea shop in Urbana-Champaign when we visited my sister, so that must have been at /least/ three years ago…

It’s obviously not the freshest, but it still tasted all right — like those Celestial Seasonings fruit zingers, but better, with a better balance of the acidity and sweetness. Not my favorite, but take that with a grain of salt, since I’m not even /entirely/ sure this is the same tea we’re talking about… =P

While I can’t say I loved this tea, I won’t say it was bad. It has a heavy taste and no one flavor or fruit shines through. Maybe the problem is that there are too many good things in the blend and they have to fight for attention.
Nonetheless, I am grateful I got this sampler from Zen Tea and for such a good price. (I can’t recall exactly, but it was under $2, I think.) A sampler from Zen gives you enough to taste a few cups and then decide and that’s what it’s all about – finding what you like. (For future reference to myself, don’t be in a hurry to re-order.)

Had a teapot of this lovely tea at “The Gilted Lily” tea house in Greensburg, IN. What a great taste. The waitress didn’t know which brand it was, and here I found it on this site! How do I get other samples? ….Tea Lover Maddie
