I really liked the ginger berry crisp! It has hibiscus in it, but I think Deb only added it to give it a beautiful, bright colour as opposed to tartness. I do not really taste the hibiscus (which is a good thing for me since I prefer my teas to be sweeter than tart)

It smells like berries and ginger. I steeped this with boiling water, and after sipping it, I think it also tastes a bold ginger with some berries added into it. I tried this with honey, and it really amplified the flavour.

I think this is a tea I could definitely see myself repurchasing. It is very warm and soothing.

Having the last of this sample sent by VariaTEA! This smells berry like and delicious! The flavor in the sip is tart and light, but at the end and in the finish the flavors brighten significantly. The berry flavor is strong, full, crisp and sweet, but there is something baked in there too. The ginger is pretty mellow and plays a supporting role to the berry. The hibiscus is pretty tame in this cup and is only in the sip. I don’t recall what I thought of this the first time I had it, but I’m digging it tonight! It’s very well blended.

This was one of the ones I packaged before knowing of your hibiscus aversion so I am glad that you enjoyed it anyways.

I’m always impressed when people know how to properly use hibiscus in blends, proper being in moderation IMHO!

VariaTEA

I used to hate it and then I realized some teas need it, but I agree that moderation is key.

I’m almost through my pouch of this, from my group order with VariaTEA and Sil, already – it’s quickly become an Autumn favourite of mine, in particular for later in the evening when I want something rich and cozy but also sweet and spicy with that kind of warmth that you feel deep in your chest that softens you from the inside out. It’s rare that I fall for a ginger tea so hard, but the mild maple notes and mixed red berry flavours with that tickle-y ginger really have captured me.

I’ve had mixed success with Dessert By Deb so far, though I did just order a bag of each of the new teas from her most recent “Fall-ish” collection. This is the only one I’ve found so far though that I’d order again – and in fact, I did order it again. Can’t wait for my new bag of it to arrive!

Those new blends do look pretty tasty.

My anxiety has been really bad lately. And with my bad anxiety, my blood pressure has been pretty bad. So, I am currently in the process of monitoring my blood pressure to let my doctor know what’s up. However, the high readings are freaking me out even more and so my anxieties are going a bit insane. That means my brain just won’t shut off.

However, living in Canada, there is something available to me to help with this situation temporarily…weed. Yay! My brother-in-law went to a dispensary to pick some stuff up for me to try. While there, they recommended a dissolvable powder that is a mix of both CBD and THC. So he picked that up and told me I could just put it in my tea. That’s where we are at.

I made this and was shocked by how odorless the powder is. Then I took a tiny sip and I could taste the weed. However, when I am actually drinking this, it smells like the tea and tastes like the tea and then there is just a weed flavor in the aftertaste. It is quite odd. So I get ginger and I get berries and then I get weed and all of that is pretty sweet thanks to the crisp element.

I struggle with anxiety too and it is no joke. I hope this can help!

VariaTEA

Update: it definitely had a calming effect but I was also still able to get through a lecture. I then slept well, which was nice. Alas I woke up and I was hit with all my anxiety and stress again. The stuff helped but I feel like I shouldn’t be waking up and drinking it so useful tool but not the solution. Though, when anxieties get really bad, I do recommend this.

Dustin

There is a tea shop (cafe style) in Tucson, Arizona that has the option of a CBD/THC add in for your drink! Only time I’ve ever seen that!
