Wow. So… I really want to write a good thorough review of this tea.

But I can’t. The first drink made me cringe. I tried a couple more sips so I could at least give it some attempt at a review. It tastes like artificially flavored powdered grape beverage, thrown in a blender with a stick of cherry lip balm and a pot of tea.

If I can say one good thing about this cup, it’s that they did not skimp on the flavorings for this brew. Unfortunately, those flavorings are terrible. Oh man would I avoid this if at all possible. I can only vaguely imagine a brew tasting worse.

That sounds pretty brutal. I do like that you managed to find a silver lining though. Well played sir, well played.

LOL wow I didn’t mind it – was no where near as good as the one from Design a Tea though. I am sorry I feel bad I thought you would like it. LOL Wait was this a sample I sent you? Haha maybe I didn’t but I do have that as well and sent you samples recently – anyway – still feel bad either way – I think I rated it pretty good. Maybe it is due to not having real wine in over 4 almost 5 years now hummm I do miss wine … gotta get SOMETHING like it so I have to settle for this stuff. :)

Nah, Azz, this one wasn’t one you had sent us a sample of. TropicalTeaCo actually sent it to us as a sample with our last order (in it’s own fairly useful in, interestingly enough). I’m glad you like it, I’ll check with Missy to see how much we have left of that sample. If there’s enough left to send to you, we may just do that, since we took a grand total of about 3 drinks between the two of us, and dumped out the pot.

fairly useful TIN. Bah, too early, I’m uncaffeinated.

Missy

uhh ummm. I apologize Azz. We used the last of the sample to make the pot we dumped out. I do like the tiny tin. I think it will be handy for sample and/or taking tea on the go.

Oh its okay I am actually searching for a far better Iced Wine. I know we can find one! :) Thanks for thinking of me though! :)

My fiancé and I are beginning to enjoy tea infusion, and it’s slowly becoming an interesting hobby that the two of us can share. Maybe not slowly… it’s somewhat amazing how much tea you can buy when everything looks shiny and new.

Tea Rating system:

90 – 100: This is a tea I will always have on hand at work, and at home. I will leave it on altars as offerings of perfection.

80 – 89: This, or one of it’s close cousins, will likely be in my cabinet at home. When this tea runs out, I will buy more. I’ll always wonder if there is something better, but be too afraid to look to stray from home to find it.

70 – 79: Definitely good, but not a clear winner. I enjoy it, I’ll finish it, but I probably won’t buy it again until I’ve exhausted all other versions of this product from any reputable retailer. Though, it may enjoy a resurrection for custom blending.

60 – 69: This tea is okay, but definitely not something I’m going to brew again. I’m going to give what I have left away.

30 – 59: I didn’t finish drinking this tea. I actually poured it out, and went for something else. I’ll still give this tea away, but I’ll do it with a warning and a plead for forgiveness.

0 – 29: This tea is riding securely towards an iceberg at the helm of the failboat. I’ve taken this out of my tea tin, and laid it on a napkin as potpurri. I do not consider it fit for human consumption.
