Fun Fact: Every time I see the name of this tea, in combination with the company name, all I can think about is the Body Break theme song…

Anyway, this was my favourite of the three blends I tried by far – I had it iced and it was just so jam packed with dense, sweet cherry flavour. It reminded me a little bit of the cherry flavour that I enjoy so heavily in DT’s Cherry Lucuma and Cherry Berry Punch blends – but kind of tart as well.

I was having it and talking to a coworker, and what I compared it to was the highly pigmented red Slush Puppies you used to be able to get super cheaply in the early 2000s, with a pump of shocker. I remember as a kid, in the summer, we would stay at our Grandma’s house for a few weeks in super small town Eyebrow (population of like 150 mostly senior citizens) and there was an ice cream shop that only opened for the summer. It had a Slush Puppy machine with like a dozen different flavours which seemed like so many as a kid. It was $2.00 for a small slushy and $0.25 for a pump of shocker. We used to get $5.00 a day for snacks, so we’d grab a chocolate bar or a bag of chips for around $1.50 and then a slushy and load it up with as much shocker as we could afford – basically blasting off our taste buds with citric acid. This is not where near that level of sour/tart, but the deep cherry flavour is sending me back to that deep place of nostalgia and that’s why I enjoyed this one the most, ultimately.

I guess the “good for you” ingredient in this one was the garcinia, but I honestly don’t care about that. It’s just nostalgic cherry slushie to me…

For a company that basically just does wellness/detox/beauty blends, cotton candy seems like a really bizarre flavour choice to me – but I suppose the idea is that wellness teas can be fun, sweet and indulgent and still “give you benefits”. What benefits this tea is supposed to be giving you, I don’t know…

In terms of taste alone though, I thought it was pretty good. It’s definitely very strongly cotton candy flavoured but it’s guilty of the same super weird flavour combination that I find DT’s Unicorn Dream has – rich cotton candy coupled with a lot of citrusy lemongrass. It doesn’t totally work for me as a pairing, and it kind of pushes the flavour into more of that Froot Loops territory.

However, it was fine overall.

Someone brought this tea, and two other flavours from the same company, in to the office from Europe – apparently the brand is very big over there. I’ve seen them on instagram before, but I didn’t realize how apparently “massive” they are…

This was an alright mix – visually it looks a big chaotic/busy, and it has that weird popped rice thing that is a super European feeling ingredient when it’s used in anything other than Genmaicha blends. I’ve never understood if it’s meant to serve any purpose other than being a filler ingredient because, if it’s for visuals, then it’s WEIRD.

Taste wise I liked this well enough – it was the softest flavour of the three I tried, and had a bit of a thin mouthfeel but both strawberry and vanilla came through pretty clearly. The strawberry was pretty juicy, and a little artificial and the slight pop of tartness with the strawberry (hibiscus?) didn’t perfectly suit the silky vanilla. So, not my favourite blend overall but not bad. I can see/understand the appeal.

I’ve never heard of them haha, but maybe it’s just big in mainland Europe
