I won an Instagram giveaway by Tickled Tea and it arrived today. When adding the teas to my steepster cupboard, I noticed how low I rated this (30) and was curious if I still felt the same way. Tbh, I highly considered just putting this right into my swap box (or the bag for Sil which has taken the place of my swap box while I wait for her to come get her teas), but I decided to give it another try.
Honestly, this tea is still not great. But it also isn’t “30” bad. It’s mostly just flat and muddied generic spice blend. I think they may have reworked the ingredients b/c I recall this having stevia in it but when I checked the site just now the ingredients contain turbinado sugar and maple flakes instead. That could definitely explain the improvement. However, while it is certainly better than it was, so many companies know how to do this flavor profile so much better. Glad I gave it another try though.
