Fruit flavoured green tea sounds like a winner for this morning. But first aroma noticed was rather herbal! What is wrong? Ah, apparently chamomile, hibiscus is in. Citric acid? Why? Anyway – to the tea. I brewed about 80 °C (+) water, it is green tea after all! It doesn´t want to steep at all! It does not change colour much, right now it is some weak red, rather orange. I will keep it there for bit more than suggested 5 minutes.

Aroma – as I said, herbal, now getting some arficial notes of pomergranate, oranges and raspberrries. But it is so artificial I am getting a headache from it. Chamomile in backgroud, and still really strong.

In taste it is metallic, with little fruit notes. No green tea! It is in even? Tart, but not from pomergranate. Everything so weak. Raspberries? Where? Maybe one for whole batch? Matcha? Nonewhere! Even liquor is clear! This iis queer. Chamomile and hibiscus so dominating, fruit notes almost nonewhere and no green tea. I wonder if it is even in.

Not a winner, just plain NAH! Bit better than Arizona I had two months ago, as this was not so sweet. By derk. Thank you experience of good and worse teas. This is unfortunately second group.

Ha, I might have sent this off to you before I tried it for myself, otherwise I wouldn’t have included it! Btw, I haven’t been able to access my messages, but I received your package. Thank you so much! I like that you included your own herbal tea.

Derk: it is completely okay that you included it. It’s new for collection at least.
I am as well super happy that you receive my package! I Hope you gonna enjoy all teas. Please let me know how are they!

This is one of the worst bagged teas, by far. The flavor is just so bad.

I do like Arizona iced green tea with honey, though. I used to buy the big jugs it back in the day, when I was slowly weaning off pop. Now I just brew my own iced tea, but it made for a great “gateway” during that transition period between pop-drinking and tea-drinking.

Mastress Alita: I usually don’t mind bagged tea. I expect lower quality. And sometimes it is pleasant surprise. But as I had the experience with US tea bags they tend to be sweet.

And I make difference between tea bag and loose leaf in ratings.
