This is by far the most interesting tea I received in the bundle. It’s a blue tea due to the blue sweet pea flowers, something I have never heard of but was fascinated to learn more about. It really is blue and if you add lemon it will turn purple, which was quite fun to see. It smells overwhelmingly minty when I first opened the bag. It’s easy to drink unsweetened and it mostly tasted like fennel and mint. Which is actually not a bad taste. Its not my favorite but I didn’t mind it. I’ve had fennel teas before and found them disgusting because of the sweetener added to the tea, this doesn’t have that. I didn’t notice any candy pieces in it as the ingredient says.

Also..you get about one good re-steep and it doesn’t take a lot of tea to make a fairly strong cup.

Flavors: Fennel, Spearmint

I was really excited for this one and the first thing I did was drink it as a latte. And I was very underwhelmed. I guess I imagined the perfect blend of a coffee tea drink…and it just fell short of any distinct flavor. Also there weren’t very many almond pieces in it. Meh.

I can’t find this one on the Etsy site anymore so I’m guessing it’s discontinued. I can see why. It’s so confused it doesn’t know what it’s supposed to be. It doesn’t have a very memorable scent until it’s brewed then it smells kinda nice. The tea as most black tea leaves aren’t very flavorful. It’s like they are using up old stocks of black tea. As for flavor it almost tastes like liquified raisins or prunes and at the same time no distinct taste. Another meh one from the company.

Flavors: Raisins

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

drank Restore Health by Tea Hippie
71 tasting notes

I was very excited because this smells amazing when you open it. Like a tropical fruity heaven. Usually if you like the scent you’ll like the tea. This is just…meh. Not much flavor. Slight cinnamon. Out of about an ounce I got about two cups of tea and forget re-steeping. I don’t recommend it. Cold or hot it’s just underwhelming.

drank Jurassic Chai by Tea Hippie
71 tasting notes

I’ve never really been into the Jurassic Park movies. My sister watched them all last summer and I could barely pay attention. But I was still excited about this tea because I love a nice spicy black tea because of how easy they are to turn into lattes. I’m all about a latte. However this tea was very disappointed. You can see the cardamom most prominently and I love cardamom..however the taste doesn’t come through at all. It just tastes like dirty barely spiced water. The black tea itself are all broken rolled up pieces. I manage to get myself excited each time I brew it, only to be mega disappointed. Blech.

drank Gryffyndor Brew by Tea Hippie
71 tasting notes

A Gryfindoor I would not be. They are brave, and I would be the first one running at a sign of danger. Of course, I was really excited about this Tea… because Harry Potter. It’s an ok Tea. It has a nice orange flavor and is pleasant enough but it’s also highly forgettable. It has rosehip and hibiscus… which means I prefer it cold. There are other herbal teas I would prefer to drink over this and I don’t think I will remember the flavor past another week or so. It was still fun to try but… average.

Flavors: Orange

drank Huckleberry Finn by Tea Hippie
71 tasting notes

I remember reading the novel in high school and hating every second of it because all I could read was the racism. I read it again a couple years ago more carefully now that I’m an adult and actually ended up loving it. I think it’s a great novel…I can’t remember why exactly. I should probably go back and read my GoodReads review. Anyway, this is basically a really boring raspberry teas with an inaccurate ingredient list. I found blue fuzzy stuff in it, and also something that looked quite orange. It doesn’t have a very memorable flavor just bleh. The black tear part of it isn’t very strong either. Idk…just not a great one. I couldn’t find it in the Etsy shop, maybe it’s been discontinued?

I get three steeps and it doesn’t hold up to milk very well. Tastes best slightly chilled.

Black tea is my favorite but I’ll never turn down a green tea. Especially with a name and description like this…. Hobbit picked straight from the shire. It’s Lord of the Rings themed. A book I have always meant to read but never mind, I watched the movies. And I’m a fan. Which is why I was so excited for this. It tastes like your typical green tea. Green and spinach tasting. Nothing really amazing and not as high quality as they make it sound. The leaves are broken etc. it’s just an average green.

drank Hufflepuff Brew by Tea Hippie
71 tasting notes

Another Harry Potter themed tea. If I were a witch, I think I might be in Hufflepuff. Or probably Ravenclaw after a second thought. Anyway, I like That this is low caffeine since it is mostly rooibos, that being said the ingredients seem listed in the wrong order. It tastes like Orange Rooibos. The orange flavor and scent is actually strong leaving me to wonder if there was any sort of flavoring. I liked it though. It uses full leaf black tea. Overall I really liked this one with a touch of honey.

You can get about three good resteeps of the tea too. So that’s good!

I got this in a Tea sample set from my sister for my birthday. I think this particular tea was named for Supernatural- a show I don’t watch. This makes the third cherry Tea I’m reviewing and unfortunately my least favorite. I tried it cold and hot and it just wasn’t very good. Not really reminiscent of cherry pie and smelled a tiny bit medicinal. Couldn’t pick out the spices. Just blah. But I have twelve more teas to try and am sure I will find a winner.

Flavors: Chocolate

Sounds like an overly complicated tea for cherry pie! Too bad it didn’t taste good. I’ve always wanted a really good sour cherry/cherry tea…

It was. I wasn’t a fan :( I have found a really good cherry banana tea from a German Brand called Tea Friends. It’s one of the best cherry teas I’ve tried so far, it made me a cherry believer.
