This tea is among 4 others from postcrossing. It’s nice to get some random teas with only one condition. You have to send back some as well.

This is decent black tea with lemon flavour.

There is almost none astringency from tea, lemon tastes quite genuine, as well aroma from it is decent. Tea, as well lemon tasted very fresh and overall I was quite happy with this one after few hours of work with scythe and morning exam… (still don’t have results, so probably in Monday)

Flavors: Lemon

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec 10 OZ / 300 ML

Okay, results are out. FAIL!
So, I guess it’s time to don’t think about all the teas, but rather study for last chance, which is in Friday. Yep, 5 days!

tea-sipper

So many tests! Good luck

Martin Bednář

Thank you tea-sipper. I am going slightly mad to be honest. It’s soo stressful!

ashmanra

Oh, Martin! I am sorry you are so stressed. Prayers for good study time and for the exam!

Nattie

Sorry about the exam Martin, and good luck with your re-sit!

Received from postrcossing back in February and forgotten. Along with 4 more tea bags, from Greece. But tea is from Ceylon :)

Upon opening the foil wrapping, a familiar aroma came up. I still haven’t found out what is it, but I know it!

The brewed tea is quite nice. I noticed “fire” made from cinnamon (again!), base tea is quite okay, quite basic. And cardamon. I expected some spicy notes, but there are not any! It is rather mellow, and not fruity at all tea.

Bit above average. I have probably expected bit more.

drank Monk's Blend by MlesnA
728 tasting notes

I have had this tea from foil tea bag. It must be quite old, as it was from huge bags section, but we will see.

Dry aroma was saying that this tea is apparently flavoured, but I could not find any flavours listed. (I found out later, that I am blind and I haven’t saw “Vanilla Grenadine Tea” on backside).

But I put that bag in mug, used boiling water and waited 3-4 minutes. Then I took the bag out. It was somehow aromatic, but I could not found out, what exactly it is. Vanilla? Yeah, some sweet notes, but not vanilla like I think.

After few minutes I took first sip. It was very similar to aroma, with one differencce. The base tea was quite strong and noticeable. When it cools down, the taste profile became more clear and I clearly noticed a pineapple flavour and bit like pomergranate, no vanilla. It wasn’t that overpowered as it could be (and sometimes even is), so I have liked it.

Moreover, this tea is apparently full of caffeine.

Flavors: Grenadine, Pineapple

Ah…in my early tea drinking days, before I realized how long it would take to go through it, I ordered a pound of the same Monk’s Blend! Haven’t had any in a while, but it sounds tasty today.

Martin Bednář

It was certainly nice to drink. The tea base was nicely present and the flavouring was just okay. I usually have troubles with both, base too weak or too much flavouring. This was alright in both.

I tasted this tea in Sri-Lanka and it was absolutely delicious. Served in a small ‘Pepsi shop’ is was piping hot.

The water was boiling, so I was tasked with waiting for it to cool down. The teabag still floating, my tea was getting stronger by the minute. After several minutes passed I was able to take my first sip… it was a delight.

Spicy deliciousness!!

I tried this tea – I have stage 4 breast cancer – and my mom tried it as well – she has diabetes.
We read lots of good things about graviola and were very encouraged.
1) Tea tastes awful. Like dirt or grass. It’s positively disgusting. (I drank it au naturel, no sweeteners).
2) I had itchy skin, severe headaches, very low blood pressure causing extreme exhaustion (no energy to even stand). I’ve been on it for a week.
3) My mom had a strong allergic reaction, hives and severe itching up and down her arm, exhaustion, no energy. She took benedryl to feel better. She’s been on it for a week too.
Because of this, we are discontinuing the use of this tea. I hope others had a more beneficial effect from taking this tea. For me, not so much. For my mom, not so much. Best of luck in your future treatments.

A good solid tea.
For a few reasons I just wasn’t in the mood to deal with much loose tea (I made two cups at once). This really hit the spot.
I had to add an entire teaspoon of sugar to suss out any peachy flavour and even then it was super mild. I prefer not to add anything at all, or if I must just a quarter/half of a teaspoon so this won’t be one I’ll purchase again.
Also, like the tea I had yesterday, this wouldn’t do so well iced.
I’m on the hunt for a tea that I adore iced, besides Darjeeling. Trouble is, I tend to prefer most teas hot and I hate to “waste” it trying out all the iced tea making methods…

Worse than the vanilla tea. No noticeable maple aroma or flavour, just a vague sweetness. Just as bitter/astringent as vanilla, but no redeeming other flavours.

Bought a single tea bag of this tea at a tea shop just for curiosity. It wasn’t bad, though it was more astringent than I’d like despite a 2 or 2.5 minute infusion. Vanilla flavour was noticeable, but not incredibly decadent or anything. Worth a try, but not a tea I need to have again.

I bought this for camping. It’s nice and compact, reusable and washes out easily. It’s white cotton which permanently stains pretty quickly but with a good wash it looks decent. I do like that it’s all fabric, so it’s great for steeping extremely fine teas and even dust.

TeaNecromancer

tea while camping sounds like one of the best ideas ever!

Anlina

My partner and I went back woods camping at the end of August and camped in a site that at the end of three lakes and three portages. And it rained quite a lot. It was an amazing trip but dear god, did I ever need a good cup of tea after that paddling and being out in the rain.

I grabbed this because I couldn’t find any of the fillable paper tea sacks for a reasonable price, and I wasn’t going to limit myself to dust tea bags.

OMGsrsly

Oh, that sounds awesome! I totally understand needing tea after being out in the rain. :) I’ve packed up a pot and my wee stove, so I can take it on rainy day dayhikes. Yeah, I spoil myself.

Picked a tin of this up in Sri Lanka.Brewed strong with a dash of milk it reminded me of the tea my grandma used to make in the 70’s.Flavoursome but without the weight and body of modern UK brand blends.The BOPF in this is close to dust but for an afternoon cuppa with milk and no navel gazing it hits the mark.Very refreshing and quite crisp.Brews quickly (2/3 mins) gets tannic if left longer.
