I received a free sample of this from a trade show a while ago.

First I was a bit disappointed, it was in a nice pyramid sachet. But there was only about 1/2 teaspoon of tea in it. Not a very large sample and not enough for a full cup. My opinion, anyway.

This tea screams hibiscus. I was anticipating that based on the fact it was a “fruit blend” and on the large amount of hibiscus and rose hip in the dry blend. So it is hibiscus tart, there are hints of citrus. Nothing I would describe as orange or pineapple. I can understand the whole point of the use of “cooler” in the name. I bet this one would be not too bad as an iced tea. Brew up and iced, then quite a bit of sugar added, would taste like a sweet and bitter juice drink. Oh well, I definitely didn’t have enough sample for that.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
