I generally do not enjoy fruit teas with a black base. The ones I’ve tried just seem to be at odds between the fruit(s) and the base, but alas, this tea is quite tasty.

I threw this in my order just because. It had melon, which is always so tempting. The melon is right there, beneath the surface, and I’m getting a hint of strawberry. The strawberry and melon work great together. There is a hint of an artificial taste, and usually this would be a deal-breaker, it’s not overly offensive in this tea at all. I am quite happy I threw this one in on a whim. Perhaps there’s hope for black teas with fruit after all.

I love black tea and this is usually what’s in my mug. I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs (unroasted/green and red preferable to roasted), whites, and subtly flavoured greens (mango or pineapple, yum!).

Likes:
Raspberry, strawberry, peach, rhubarb, passionfruit, blackcurrant, redcurrant, fig, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, hay, biscuit, lavender, and cacao/dark chocolate.

I enjoy bergamot when paired with flavours that mellow it (Camellia Sinensis Earl Grey Cream is one of my favourites).

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, rose, jasmine, ginger (except in chai), cinnamon-heavy teas, anything cloying or fake/candy-like.

I’m vegan with an allergy to potatoes, so I avoid any animal products in tea, along with sprinkles as these often have potato starch (I usually just pick them out of blends).
