You all know I am drowning in tea. And from today, I am on the bottom of the sea of tea.

But they got good internet connection there, so here is another tasting note.

Izzy (https://steepster.com/izzyscorner), who got really nice reviews last year had busy year so she decided to focus only on her blog and not Steepster in same time. She is doing fine though, so I am happy everything is alright in the UK from her part. She decided to send me, as a Christmas gift, a box full of tea bags (for my collection) and of course, most of them are full. There are some samples from a brand that haven’t started yet, some loose leaf samples… just lots of to drink (great, I don’t have any tea in the cupboards… (irony).

Ah, the tea.
I am quite happy to get tea bags, as I don’t have time or want to spend time with loose leaf. Of course, there is the less happy part — the tea bags are usually worse than loose leaf. As always I try to rate differently.

This tea, as a caffeine-free blend was nice today afternoon. Though something was lacking. The aroma was quite good, citrusy and tangerine, but unfortunately, kind of artificial note hits the spot as well. It wasn’t genuine soemhow.

On the other hand, the taste was quite flavourful, summer-y and citrus. Again mostly tangerine, which is probably expected flavour. It was quite juicy, but I was lacking some depth in this cuppa. It was too straightforward for me. I believe this tea would rock if iced!

Flavors: Artificial, Citrusy

Good to hear Izzy is doing well. I actually started doing a tea blog, and then abandoned it to just be on Steepster (so the opposite!)

Drowning in a sea of tea isn’t the worst place to be! :) I can’t wait for my Black Friday haul.
