My sample of this arrived in today’s mail, and I couldn’t resist trying it right away. It looked so intriguing and it smells so good! It looks like a dry fruit medley/trail mix, and the smell made my mouth water… I almost reached in and started munching on it!
This tea became very thick and murky in my smart tea maker. It didn’t want to strain, it was so thick. The wet leaf that remains in my smart tea maker after straining isn’t very appetizing to look at, but, the flavor of the strained liquor is delicious, so it was worth the effort to encourage the tea to pass through the strainer.
Mmm… vanilla, dates, strawberries! It is sweet with a little tartness in the finish… and just plain GOOD. Yummy!
Edited to Add: I just noticed on the page for this tea on the Sanctuary T website, it suggests not to strain or use an infuser with this tea, but to enjoy the fruit bits while you sip. I personally am glad that I did strain it, though, because, I found the damp bits to be a bit muddy looking and not like something I’d want to eat.
