Never know what you’ll find if you stick your hand far enough back in the cabinet. Found this little half-ounce treasure in the nether regions. It’s probably older than some of you are. However, since high summer tends to turn my tastebuds toward fruity stuff, I gave it a go.

And whaddya know? It’s still got it. Almost smells like candy, and the fruity-vanilla sweetness is still there—hasn’t gone chemical tasting like some elderly flavored teas do.
Need to start shopping for a contemporary equivalent—I think Tropical Tea Co. is long gone.

Moral of the story—don’t give up on something just ‘cause it’s geezerly.

Steepster “geezer” (been reviewing here for more than a decade); tea barbarian who has no systematic method for storage, preparation, classification, or rating; lover of strong unleaded builders’ tea. Never quite grew up—I cut and glue, play with Legos, design kids’ curriculum, and play with fifth graders every Sunday.
