After lunch, I took this as a hot tea and Monkey Chop as an iced latte back to the office with me…and by that I mean to the desk upstairs. It was nice and even as it cooled I enjoyed it. It was peachy and fruity and just a nice afternoon tea as I listened to did video training.
so we often joke around here that my child is feral. She managed to use her teeth and popped a can of soda when she was like 8 months, she always wants to chew on dog toys and such. So it should come as no surprise that she got ahold of this tea, managed to suck/chew through the package to then stuff the teabag in her mouth. I’m not sure if she was hoping for eternal life or just like the taste but as a result id din’t actually get to try this tea. Which isn’t a huge deal for me as the smell of the jasmine was enough to make me think i wouldn’t like it much. But thanks for entertaining my kid VariaTEA lol
Thank you Roswell Strange for the share but this tastes like DAVIDsTEA’s Sleigh Ride and given I didn’t love that, I’m not a huge fan of this. There’s a quality that Forever Nuts and other blends like it have that I enjoyed once and then for some reason just turned against it and even the smell was off putting. Sleigh Ride and similarly, this tea, fall into that category so while it’s fun to try new things, this was more like revisiting a tea I didn’t enjoy.
haha i was ok with this tea because i don’t mind hibiscus. That said, for a tea advertised as vanilla cinnamon, it’s mostly just sorta vanilla hibiscus. I really like these tea bags because i can make tea without focusing too much on it. While i didn’t mind the tea – i don’t feel like it’s very true to what it’s trying to be.
This came to me via Roswell Strange as all these Floragold teas do. Thank you for sharing!
This is meant to be raspberry apricot and like Roswell, I got absolutely no apricot. I did get raspberry though, sorta, but mostly it was hibiscus/berry. No chalky taste like Roswell got at least. It was okay but nothing special.
this one fell somewhere in the middle of malty with a little bit of astringency. basically neither roswell strange nor variaTEA’s experience – just midpoint. I enjoyed it as a result. I am never a huge fab of tea bags…hate the environmental impact even when they’re biodegradable . But this was a nice change from the 3 teas i’ve had to drink haha
Roswell Strange and I had very different experiences with this tea. She got malt and breadiness and I am getting a lot of mineral and astringency. It’s a big NO for me and thankfully a sipdown. Nevertheless, thank you Roswell Strange for sharing and giving me the chance to try something new…even if it didn’t quite work out with this cup :P
taking a break from not working (no my ID still isn’t set up) and entering tea in to my cupboard to have more tea. I have a few of these tea bags so figured i might as well dive in. This is a relatively smooth, slightly astringen black. But i’m ok with it because it’s different! yay! My cupboard started at 13 before VariaTEA’s samples….i’m currently sitting at 50 and still have many, many, many more to add lol let’s see where we end up!
I had 2 teabags of this, this one with a best before date of January 2020 and another with a best before date of September 2020. When deciding where to put them (since one was past best before and thus should be in my focus box and the other wasn’t and thus could be in the regular caffeine free drawer) it made life much easier to drink this one and put the last teabag into the sipdown box. So that’s what I did.
This tea is a little muted. Tbh I don’t know what tulsi should taste like but I haven’t loved any blends that had it so I guess I’m not a fan. This blend is no exception. I’m not loving the flavour and while I’m not entirely sure if it’s the tulsi, the one thing I am sure of is the kick of ginger. Also, there isn’t much orange. It’s not the worst blend but not really a favourite either. Still, it’s always fun to try something new so thank you Roswell Strange for sharing!
