157 Tasting Notes
Mmmmm… flower juice. I have no idea why this is so good. I think I was right about staying away from pure chamomile and sticking to blends; it plays a supporting role here and is really pleasant. Some folks have reported not tasting lavender at all, while some have reported applesauce, chamomile, and lavender. I’m led to believe that either they’re still sorting out their formula or the batches are unbalanced because this? This is (lavender) flower juice. I admit to sweetening it slightly, and it’s lurvely.
sob Friends, if you think that berries and hibiscus will be anything like the perfection that is strawberry and rhubarb, you would be mistaken. So… very… mistaken. teapigs say that this tea tastes as good as it smells. This is truth in advertising: it smells awful. My rating for this blend is lemony puckerface. You know the one.
Flavors: Berries, Hibiscus
Like the other teapigs cold brews I’ve tried (rose and lychee, peach and mango), this is a light and refreshing blend. Unlike the others, though, this one is a bit too light. The cucumber is lovely but has to be coaxed out by steeping longer than advised. The apple’s hiding a bit, but pops in to say hullo now and again. This is more of an included-in-a-variety-pack than a solo purchase for me.
Flavors: Apple, Cucumber
Oh, green tea. It’s not you, it’s me. I’ve tried so hard, can’t you see? I think now it’s time I just let you be. Unless you’re hanging out with my buddy jasmine, in which case I’m here for it.
This tastes like smoky rice water.

Y’all, they turned V8 into a tea and I’m not sure how I feel about it. Also V8 has a tomato base and there’s no tomato in this tea so basically this blend is sorcery. There’s a bit of tartness from the hibiscus (whyyyy), but it’s not overwhelming. I dunno, it’s just all a bit confusing.
Flavors: Tart, Vegetables
