503 Tasting Notes
I received this tea from my friend for my birthday. With a name like “Flower Heaven”, I thought it would be a good night time tea. The flavour is lovely! All lavender and chamomile but lavender is the predominant flavour. It’s very floral without going overboard. It really is a perfect tea for sipping in the evening before bed. I really do love the lavender in here. It dances on the tongue and makes for a delightful cup. A simple tea but I love it!
I have a soft spot for this tea. My Grandmother used to take me to Tim Horton’s and always asked me if I wanted a Honey Lemon Tea or a French Vanilla Cappuccino and a doughnut. So every time I drink this tea, I think about her and our trips to Tim Horton’s. Just for that reason alone, this tea is comforting for me. Even just the thought of it is comforting. It’s all about the memories but I do genuinely like this tea, even if there were no other attachments to it. Lemony, sweet and soothing. A nice herbal option for the evenings when I don’t want to overload on caffeine. My Grandmother passed away in 2011 but I still can’t drink this tea without thinking of her and the times we spent at Tim Horton’s together. I wouldn’t trade those memories for anything.
Flavors: Lemon, Sweet
This is the strangest tea I’ve had, to date. First the good; There are no preservatives, no artificial flavourings, no colouring or other additives and it’s non-GMO. This tea is fairly simple with only two ingredients, organic pineapple and organic ming aralia. Now the not so good; the taste! It’s not that it tastes terrible, it just tastes very odd, courtesy of the ming aralia, which tastes like exactly what it is, a shrub! Off putting. I can taste the pineapple and it does taste natural and sweet but the flavour seems to sit at the bottom of the cup with the bag so it needs a good stirring before you drink it. I got through my first cup and admittedly, did not enjoy it so when I did a re-steep, I added some frozen pineapple chunks I had in my freezer to make the tea more bearable. I’m sure some people would appreciate this tea but it’s definitely not for me and I would never buy it again. Luckily, I have a big bag of frozen pineapple chunks which I will add to this tea every time I drink it so I can get through the box. I’ve rated it a 50 due to the fact that it does have good qualities but if it wasn’t so “natural”, I would have rated it lower.
