“Ooh, Raspberry Lemonade… sounds delicious. I’m trying it!”

That’s my first reaction to the three tea samples, 6.5g each, that Dollar Tea Club sent me today.

Out of the bag, it smells distinctly like pink bubblegum. Brewed up, it smells more raspberry bubblegum… interesting.

The folks I’m staying with had a cup (this made two, 12oz cups of tea). Their reaction? “It was sweet, nice”. They’re not tea people, but they appreciated it.

I’m a bit more… discerning? lol Or picky.

Hibiscus haters, don’t try this one. It’s as bloody as they come, in all its glory. It’s also surprisingly tart the longer you steep it. Sadly, more sweetener is needed to make it palatable for this gal.

Sweetened, I could drink a whole jug of this at one sitting, especially once it cooled. Yep, this tea’s a keeper.

NOTE: I received this tea for free in exchange for an honest review.

Sil – you should definitely check them out! $1 for 3 samples, including shipping. Mind you they’re based in Thornhill, but they’ll still ship it to you.

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
