This one is interestingly described as an “organic vegi infusion”, but what I love most about it is that it’s the cutest shade of pink. I do love a good pink tea. This one reminds me a little of Bird & Blend’s Beet It, although I think that’s a sweeter blend on the whole (at least as far as I can remember.) I’ll have to renew my acquaintance with that one at some point.

This one is pretty savoury; I get quite a lot of carrot, initially, and then the sweeter earthiness of beetroot. There’s a touch of sage, and just a hint of spiciness. There are a few fruits among the ingredients that I would have expected more sweetness from – blueberry, pineapple, mango – but they don’t really seem to have any impact on the overall flavour. It’s not a sweet/fruity blend, and I don’t think it’s supposed to be.

As to whether I like it…I guess, kinda? I don’t mind savoury tea, and there have been some I’ve really enjoyed, but I suppose it still seems like a bit of an alien concept. This one has a combination of ingredients that work well together, but I think it’d be better suited to autumn/winter drinking. I might revisit this one later in the year, when I can imagine I might have more appreciation for it.

Hi :) I’m Sarah, and I live in Norfolk in the UK. My tea obsession began when a friend introduced me to Teapigs a good few years ago now. Since then, I’ve been insatiable. Steepster introduced me to a world of tea I never knew existed, and my goal is now to TRY ALL THE TEAS. Or most of them, anyway.

I still have a deep rooted (and probably life-long) preference for black tea. My all-time favourite is Assam, but Ceylon and Darjeeling also occupy a place in my heart. Flavoured black tea can be a beautiful thing, and I like a good chai latte in the winter.

I also drink a lot of rooibos/honeybush tea, particularly on an evening. Sometimes they’re the best dessert replacements, too. White teas are a staple in summer — their lightness and delicate nature is something I can always appreciate on a hot day.

I’m still warming up to green teas and oolongs. I don’t think they’ll ever be my favourites, with a few rare exceptions, but I don’t hate them anymore. My experience of these teas is still very much a work-in-progress. I’m also beginning to explore pu’erh, both ripened and raw. That’s my latest challenge!

I’m still searching for the perfect fruit tea. One without hibiscus. That actually tastes of fruit.

You’ve probably had enough of me now, so I’m going to shut up. Needless to say, though, I really love tea. Long may the journey continue!

My rating system:

91-100: The Holy Grail. Flawless teas I will never forget.

81-90: Outstanding. Pretty much perfection, and happiness in a cup.

71-80: Amazing. A tea to savour, and one I’ll keep coming back to.

61-70: Very good. The majority of things are as they should be. A pleasing cup.

51-60: Good. Not outstanding, but has merit.

41-50: Average. It’s not horrible, but I’ve definitely had better. There’s probably still something about it I’m not keen on.

31-40: Almost enjoyable, but something about it is not for me.

11-30: Pretty bad. It probably makes me screw my face up when I take a sip, but it’s not completely undrinkable.

0-10: Ugh. No. Never again. To me, undrinkable.
