I picked this blend up in New Zealand. It has been one of my oasis teas at work. I brought the last bag home so I could do a proper review, but instead ended up drinking it all with a yummy caramel/chocolate loaf thing that I brought back from NZ (this: http://www.loaf.co.nz/catalogue/page/browse/all/gooey-caramel). So I don’t have detailed notes, but I do have some great memories. This tea has a great vanilla scent and flavor, even though it’s artificial. A splash of honey or rice milk really takes it over the top. Yet another reason to find a way to get back!
I had high hopes for this tea as I love feijoas. But it’s just a supermarket tea with only 1% feijoas in the ingredients and some “nature identical” flavours. The taste is very artificial to me and not like feijoa at all. Tried mixing it with Healtheries blueberry green tea (1 bag of each in a cup) but no improvement, just a stronger artificial taste. I take a lesson from this to only buy real tea from a tea shop.
I picked this up on sale during the last supermarket run as an impulse purchase and wow! Colour me surprised at the outcome. It’s really really delicious! Whenever hibiscus or rosehips are in a tea, I usually find they overpower everything, but I’m not tasting them very much in this tea at all. Mainly getting Tangerine, Orange, and berry. As with a lot of fruit teas, it smells absolutely amazing. The taste matches the smell too, which have never found when it comes to tisanes. I love that it’s caffeine free as well, as I’ve been missing something to drink before bed.
It says on the box that it’s made using imported ingredients from Germany. I’m wondering if it’s the large German tea manufacturer that a lot of brands (David’s Tea, Adagio, Zen etc) use for a lot of their teas. I’m hoping so, as it would be nice to have something that’s decent quality for less than the usual $16 per small bag here.
I’ll definitely be keeping this in my cupboard and be trialing other flavours!
