I certainly paid enough to get this online, since I can’t find it anywhere near me. Not even in Netcost which has a full range of Ahmad teas.

It smells faintly of pear, with another odd, almost musty scent that’s not cinnamon. It’s not like it stinks, but on the other hand it isn’t particularly nice. Flavor-wise it’s mostly pear, a little bit of cinnamon, and some sort of funky undertone that I don’t quite care for. It might be the base tea itself, I don’t know. When the tea’s warm it’s not so bad, but when it cools that taste becomes a lot more noticeable.

Definitely overpriced for what it is at $7 a box for 15 sachets, and doesn’t live up to all the glowing reviews I’ve seen for it. I’ll finish what I have, but I won’t seek it out again.

Even though my profile picture’s the worgen crest, rest assured my heart belongs to the Horde.

I’m a gamer girl who drinks a lot of tea. My tastes tend heavily towards black tea, though I won’t turn down a nice green or white either.

I stay away from most herbals because far too many of them have hibiscus. I find hibiscus disgusting. Nor am I a fan of rooibos; the taste has to be pretty heavily masked for me to drink it. Usually if I’m drinking a tisane it’s something purely floral like lavender, or rose buds, or chrysanthemum.

I’ll almost always put sugar in my tea, unless it’s something that really doesn’t work well with it (I will never ever add sugar to lapsang souchong again) or something that honestly doesn’t need it or would be ruined by it, like most unflavored greens or whites.
