drank Magic Aloe by Oxalis
1991 tasting notes

Pulled from TTB 2022, shared by Martin Bednář.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from an aloe tea. James seemed perplexed when he tasted it, but I’m still not quite sure what to make of this one. There is a flavor like lemongrass, but I don’t remember seeing that in the list of ingredients. It has a Pez candy vibe. I don’t drink a lot of fruity herbals, so I don’t see myself reaching for this one very often. It was nice as an after-dinner treat though.

Flavors: Candy, Lemongrass

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Sadly, it seems it is gone forever :/

Oh no! I’ll be passing it along, so hopefully the rest of this bag will find its way to someone who loves it.

I love flavored black teas most of all, always with cream and honey. I enjoy floral and fruity teas, as well as flavored or scented ones. I’m not overly fond of green or white teas, but I’ve found a few that I enjoy.

I’m open to tea swaps and/or just sharing what’s in my tea cabinet! Please reach out if you see something I have that you’d like to try. I do my best to update my cupboard regularly.

Rating Scale

1-20: By far, one of the worst teas I’ve tasted. I most certainly will not finish my cup and will likely “gift” the rest to my sweet husband, James, who almost always enjoys the teas I dislike (and vice versa).

21-49: This tea is not good, but if I mix it with another tea or find another steeping method I might be able to finish it.

50-69: This one is just okay. I might drink it again if someone were to give it to me, but I probably won’t be buying more for myself.

70-79: This is a consistently good tea. It’s reliable but not necessarily special.

80-90: This one is a notch above the rest and I would gladly enjoy a cup of it any day of the week. I’ll likely be keeping this in my cupboard, but it isn’t one of my all-time favorites.

91-95: One small change and this tea would be perfect. I’ll definitely have a stash of this in my kitchen if you come over for tea.

96-100: No words can describe this tea. It’s an experience, an aha moment. Closed eyes, wide smile, encompassing warmth. Absolutely incredible. Perfect.
