This sample was from Zen Tea. Thank you!

Holy berries, Batman! This herbal is berries through and through. The elderberries and black currant seemed to dominate, but every now and then I could taste a bit of blackberry. I could see strawberry bits in the dry tea, but I never tasted them in the infusion. The other berry flavors completely overpowered it. I would have liked to have less elderberry and more strawberry. There is also hibiscus in here, of which I am not a fan. It was not overpowering, but every now and then I would get that jaw clinching tart note. So not my favorite herbal, but still a good one.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
