4th tea from my May Sips By box. I was so excited to see a fruity herbal without any hibiscus in it!
The rosehips sort of give it a meh for me and I’d probably add more ‘leaf’ next time than suggested but it’s quite lemony, which is to be expected since there are 4 lemon ingredients in it. They also list mango on the list twice and I did get a big chunk in my steeper but it’s less present, or possibly I’m just less attuned to it?
I enjoyed it more when I added a bit of german rock sugar to it (or rather, remembered to stir what I had already put in that was just hanging out in the bottom of the cup) and all the flavours got just a little brighter and I’m suddenly enjoying this one a whole lot more. Is it totally unique and worth seeking out? Maybe. I doubt I’ll buy it again but the ingredient list is pretty interesting, even if they have a disclaimer on the package about medical claims and the FDA. Apparently Urbal is a ‘health’ company more than a tea company.
At any rate, I’ll have no troubles drinking up this little ‘starter pack’ from Sips By and it was kinda cute how Urbal included a couple of empty bags in the package of tea for people who don’t have teapots in every single place they spend significant amounts of time (me).
