I am pretty much impressed finding this tea here. But well, it’s there so I don’t have to add another entry to the database.

It is from huge bags section, so unknown age (but a lot), only a paper bag, no box or anything else. Mixed with other tea bags.

Steeeping should be 2-3 minutes longs so again I did steep on shorter time. I took a sniff before dunking the tea bag and I thought that cranberries are in. False. Apparently it is orange with cloves.

The tea as brewed isn’t bad. But as well nothing fancy. The base was very strong and the orange was there but muted a lot (maybe because the age) and flavour was quite astringent and bitter. I can imagine that orange with cloves being bitter, but this was quite unpleasant. Sad. But it was orange in taste, more-less.

It seems they have a webshop: https://www.teaoflife.nl/index.php/en which is quite funky, but I won’t order anything from them I guess. Paying 20 € for postage of samples is way too steep. And they have only tea bags.

Wow, that does seem steep, especially for bags!

I don’t think it is accurate to be honest. The tea bags are quite small and doesn’t need to be sent in a parcel. And still, 20 € for 100 grams? I don’t think that Dutch post is that pricey!
