I found that this smells a lot like Davidstea Raspberry Mojito. I wasn’t a huge fan of that one, so I am a little skeptical of trying this one out. I prepared it iced and I did not like it at all! The mint is overpowering the berry taste in a really bad way. This one is going for a trip down the kitchen drain.
Has a nice chocolate/vanilla flavor and the rooibos taste is just perfect in this blend. I like this tea! I got a cute set of 3 tins of 25g each at marshalls on clearance and decided, why not try em? They sound delish. Super Berries and Green Tea Pomegranate were the other two teas in the set.
I’m continuing with my challenge (or trying to…) while I’m away, which means I’m writing these up as and when I can. I simplified things for myself as much as I could by buying a Varieteas box before I left – they’re a curated selection of 30 different teas, but all of them bagged. Not my usual thing, but useful in this particular set of circumstances.
My first pick was English Tea Shop’s Comfort Me. I felt in need of comfort this evening, after a long, trying day of travelling. It’s a blend of chamomile, spearmint, ginger, basil, vanilla, marjoram, amalaki and guduchi. No idea about the last two, but otherwise I’m on board.
It’s surprisingly heavy on the vanilla, with an edge of spiciness, and a background of chamomile. There’s just a touch of spearmint, which works really nicely with the vanilla to create a kind of butter mint effect. If butter mints were spicy, that is. I don’t immediately recognise the spiciness as ginger, although I suppose that’s what it is. I feel like I’m particularly sensitive to ginger and it doesn’t really bother me here, so that’s a bonus.
I’m intrigued by this one. I like it more than I thought I would, although I’m going to have to research amalaki and guduchi a little to find out what they are. Not tonight, though! Otherwise, glad to have tried this one.

The smell of this tea as it steeps is delightful. A lovely, fresh, juicy peach aroma. The flavour is of delicious peaches with a background of ginger. Really nice. A satisfying, soothing tea that I’m sure would taste just as good iced as it does hot. I drank mine black but I bet this would be really good with a touch of honey added as well.
