I received this tea as a gift and despite my apprehensions about the beets, decided to give it a steep n taste. It was better than I expected. The beet flavour does come through, but not as much as I had feared.
The tartness is nice as well… for a change. Sweet but tangy.
Of course, I find that the “berry” teas tend to taste pretty much the same, the variety of fruits tend to make up a generic flavour with very little variation in range of undertones. Pity… as it smells absolutely amazing. I had hoped that the grapefruit would show up more in the taste but knew that it likely wouldn’t so wasn’t surprised at all when the beets took over everything.
One day I’ll find a tea that actually has the intense grapefruit taste I seek!

On the flip side, this tea would make a great iced drink. I would drink it more as a “juice” than a tea though, and again, you could give me any berry tea, iced or not, and it would taste very much the same but it’s just as good as any of the others. Except for those with mint in them. I <3 those!

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
