So far, I’m intrigued…and I haven’t even sampled the tea yet! I am just enjoying the citrusy aroma, which contradicts its rosy liquor. The aroma reminds me of oranges and mint, which is, as a favorite character would say, “curiouser and curiouser.”

I’ve steeped it for a good five minutes now, which is the shorter of the times recommended. But I fear the Revenge of Hibiscus, as many herbal samplings offer.

I need not worry! Even though this liquor is hot pink, it tastes orangy, minty and ginger-y all in one cuppa. Yum! And the orange flavor is natural tasting, not like that artificial-cleaning-product smell.

Second sip, I taste a vegetative quality – slightly grassy, but utterly herbally. There’s a sweet aftertaste, which I think may be the tangerine.

Third sip. This is a calming, mellow tea. I wouldn’t wake up with this blend, but it’s relaxing me after a hard day at work.

Definite cupboard contender.

Hello fellow tea fans!
I’ve been a tea enthusiast for years but just recently started brewing my own. I’ve created some blends, and enjoy researching about new teas. I combined my love of tea and writing to create a tea-devoted blog, Keen Tea Thyme. I have been writing for most of my life and am a former journalist with a degree in Communications and Social Psychology, and a minor in Writing. Journalism is in my blood, so that means I’m inquisitive by nature, will double-check sources and/or get a second opinion as needed, but also fair and balanced in my reviews. If my reviews seem more positive, energetic and have high ratings, it’s because I love tea. :)

If you are a tea company, I’d love to review some your tea! Free samples are always welcome so I can fully enjoy the freshest selections. I’m also open to tea swaps as I always have too many teas on hand to drink & would love to share with other tea enthusiasts! :)

My Simple Rating Scale (as of Feb. 2011)
>50: I’m NOT a fan. I could barely finish the cup, if I even did. I wouldn’t even recommend this to my worst enemy. Not worth my time nor yours.

51-65: Good aroma, good flavor. Just nothing pops to give the tea that special kick. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

66-79: Yes, finally, tea – unique flavor profiles, great aroma & flavor. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

80-99: These are cupboard essentials – delicious, aromatic and perfect everyday teas. Re-steepable (beyond at least one steeping). Highly recommended, fun for all ages.

100: These are my favorites, the ones I would take with me if stranded on a desert island. Beyond Highly Recommended.
