Short steeping time – maybe 2 minutes at maximum.

Anyways, I see in the sachet everything that is on the photo, as well written on foil wrapping. In aroma of dry tea – I notice mostly lemongrass and maybe little bit of mint.

Used water of temperature of first bubbles, haven’t measured it today, but it used to be around 80°C.

And when brewed, it wasn’t so aromatic, but yeah, I notice lemon and lemongrass, as well again some spearmint. Sounds quite refreshing.

Well, in taste it is not so great, but certainly so far best from this company (and this collection) I had. It is okay green tea with some warmth by ginger. And then some lemon notes appear. Nothing too strong, but it’s there and, quite enjoyable. It is not sour at all!

Flavors: Ginger, Lemon, Lemongrass, Mint

Another tea with cinnamon today and wasn’t so great either.

I brewed it with boiling water and steeped 3 minutes. Brews another copper colour + maybe bit similar as on the picture. Brown, copper maybe. It turned out indeed quite aromatic, indeed after cinnamon. Taste was mellow, quite okay, but tartness from apples? I do not think so, rather rosehips with hibiscus. Apples were rather on sweet side of spectrum, and not much presented in taste. Taste was bit warming, because of cinnamon; but nothing strong and “wow”.

What happens on New Year’s Day, should happen all the year. I hope it won’t be my case with tea.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Red Apple, Sweet

Does that mean I’m stuck with a mouse in my kitchen until next December?!? :)

Hehe, probably yes. But don’t worry, it is just weird Czech saying :D


I am afraid there may be truth to it. THREE spoiled cats and not a one of ‘em with the gumption to take him down! (Or, in reverse, one gumptious mouse who doesn’t care that the house smells like three spoiled cats.)

“Best brewed at 100° for 2-3 mins until a light cherry pink.”

Hm, no cherry pink. Classical black tea copper colour.
And taste? Although I kept the pyramid sachet in all the time, it was – medicore.

Yeah, it was black tea based on sip, with fruity notes. But pineapple, cherry (only flavouring), raspberry or blueberry? I can not notice single of them. It was just some weird mix all together. Maybe the pineapple was most present, but somehow artificial.

I would rate it later. I wonder what next 3 teas from this company will be. I hope they will be better (Lemon citrus, First Blush and Apple Cinnamon)

Flavors: Artificial, Pineapple, Tea
