Bought this on impulse at Target this weekend as a house-warming gift to myself. Just tried it at work after lunch.

First impression: bag smells great, tropical and can’t detect the jasmine.

As it brews: was surprised at how long the water was clear, its a very yellow green tea.
Also what are the white dots floating in the tea bag?? – not natural looking!

Tasting: Orange is main note I am getting with sweetness being lent from the passionfruit flavor (barely detectable). I get a slightly floral aftertaste but nothing distinctly jasmine. I’m not getting much green tea taste, its tastes like water infused with orange, passionfruit and jasmine as opposed to a green tea with these ingredients.

Overall pleasant experience especially the aroma. I only steeped for 2:15 min. because I read the reviews and some said it gets bitter, may experience with temps/times for this one or try it iced. I had low expectations so I can dig this.

Flavors: Flowers, Orange, Orange Zest, Passion Fruits, Tropical

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Hello!! I’m so happy I found this site!!

I’m Haley and here are three random things about me:
-I took Ancient Greek in college, i’m generally fascinated by words, language and translation

-I bike to work everyday and love physical fitness

-I’m a stony hippie

I’ve recently become obsessed with tea after moving back to my rainy Northwest hometown after a two year stint in the dirty south with my boyfriend.

In the South, I drank exclusively unsweet iced tea. It was survival.

For the past few months I’ve delved back into the world of hot teas and I have so much more exploring to do. I am ashamed that I haven’t tried more loose leaf tea and intend to try anything I can get my hands on! I would love to swap!!

When I’m drinking tea you can expect that it has a small amount of honey in it or nothing at all.

I rarely use dairy but may pour a splash of almond or coconut milk in a chai or dessert tea.

Favorite flavors: cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, peppery, spicy, chai, holiday/fall flavors, grapefruit, citrus, lemongrass, matcha

Can’t stand: star anise, fennel, licorice, overpowering mint, red fruit teas served hot

Want to try/ haven’t found a good one: the green that makes my heart beat faster, chocolate, grapefruit, coconut, berry/fruit, your favorite earl grey, your favorite chocolate

I drink mostly hot green and black tea, have a strange relationship with rooibos and have only tried white tea iced.

<3 Tell me about yourself and your favorite tea!
