Thank you to VariaTEA for this sample!

While this does oversteep if left for too long (gets too acidic and acrid), I really enjoyed having a unique caffeine free blend that was completely different from anything else in my collection.

There are definite flavours of apple, lime, citrus, hibiscus, goji berry? some sort of berry I can’t identify, fruit, and mint. I also tasted notes of cream, berries, herbs, and lemon. I thought the mint was a bit odd in a fruity blend, but overall it was still nice to try. I would probably brew it cold/iced in the future if I ordered it again.

Flavors: Apple, Berry, Citrus, Cranberry, Cream, Fruity, Goji, Herbs, Hibiscus, Lemon, Lime, Mint, Peppermint, Sour

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 15 sec

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
