Sipdown!
This is a mint chocolate rooibos. If you’ve had any of them, you have probably tasted this one. I put a ton of oat milk in it to drown out the potential rooibos and highlight the mint chocolate and it’s easily drinkable this way. It’s not great, but it’s not bad and it wasn’t what I was hoping for when I ordered it.

Another mango tea!  No one else has ever written a note for this one? I bought this a looonnngg time ago, never wrote a note.  It just falls into that “generic fruit” flavor for me rather than mango.  It would have been more acceptable if this was “Extreme Fruits” rather than proclaiming to be very mango.  I do enjoy that a few fruits are represented here: mango, pineapple, strawberry, orange and tangerine.  There is an earthy quality and then there is a very sweet quality that my mind wants to think is stevia, but it might just be the sugars on the fruit cubes.  I AM always looking for nice yerba mate blends, but this one is never fantastic to me.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug // 21 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 //  15 minutes after boiling // 3 min

drank Blue Eyes Hibiscus by Fusion Teas
2387 tasting notes

Sample from getanzt! I’m pretty sure I’ve had this tea from English Tea Store, and it was okay, but I’m happy to give it another try! The berry flavor is there, but it’s definitely quite fake. This is a very average berry tea. Some sips I enjoy more than others. There are just plenty of better options.

I taste a lot of peach flavoring. It’s a little tart and artificial. Like most fruity teas, it’s refreshing cold, but it’s just too fake tasting for me. I appreciate getanzt for sharing so many teas, but I’m learning that Fusion’s fruity herbals are not for me.

Refreshing pear and cinnamon tea.

The peach flavor is a little fake, so I wouldn’t really want this often, but it is rather pleasant cold. I can’t taste the honeybush very much, really just the fake, though refreshing peach. Thanks for sharing, getanzt!

drank Pear Cinnamon by Fusion Teas

Thanks to getanzt for this one! The pear smells so ripe and juicy and authentic. The flavor matches the scent! The pear comes through so realistically and deliciously. I taste a touch of cinnamon also, but the main thing is that great pear. This is the first tea from Fusion that I would totally buy for myself. It’s such a refreshing cold tea, and the resteep is great too.

drank Pina Colada by Fusion Teas
2387 tasting notes

Thanks for this sample, getanzt! This one definitely tastes tropical, though I wouldn’t guess pina colada specifically. I taste coconut and some other fruit that I suppose could be pineapple. There’s also something tart in there like hibiscus, though that’s not too strong, sort of just a base flavor to fill it out.

drank Watermelon Lime by Fusion Teas
2387 tasting notes

I don’t really like lime flavoring, but it’s not terrible here when it’s cold. I might taste some watermelon too. This isn’t bad, but not for me. I think I’ve also tried this one from another company, and I like it more than I used to. Thanks for sharing this one, getanzt!

drank Raspberry Champagne by Fusion Teas
2387 tasting notes

This is another one from getanzt! I’m not a white tea fan, and that was the primary flavor here, so it wasn’t really a tea for me. I could taste a hint of fruitiness, but it was too overpowered by the base. This was overall just flat and not exciting.

This is a little more tart than I expected. I wish they had stuck to just apple/vanilla and left out the hibiscus. It doesn’t really taste like apple at all, just tart red fruit. I also don’t taste any vanilla. This is refreshing enough cold, but not special or interesting at all. I still appreciate the chance to try it from getanzt!

Thinking it may be time to get my eyes checked … I read that as “Hibiscus Infection.”

Ha when I’m doing crossword puzzles, I swear I’m looking for the wrong thing half the time because I read the clue incorrectly!

drank Blood Orange by Fusion Teas
2387 tasting notes

Sample from getanzt! This tea is a bit too tart and almost bitter. It tastes mostly like orange peel. It’s also too herbaceous. I wouldn’t want this one again unfortunately!

Sample from getanzt! The lime is fake in a way that I don’t love. I prefer a more delicate or zingy lime, and this is a bit more tart in the orange peel sort of way. Having said that, this one did grow on me over the course of the cup. It honestly did end up being a pretty refreshing cold cup of tea. I didn’t taste much except the lime, but it wasn’t bad.

drank Peach Fuzz by Fusion Teas
2387 tasting notes

Sample from getanzt! This tea is quite peachy, but I don’t find myself liking it that much. It’s decent cold, but not candylike or juicy. I don’t enjoy the white tea base, and the flavoring is too artificial.

drank Peach Infusion by Fusion Teas
2387 tasting notes

There’s probably a little too much hibiscus in this tea, so it’s a bit tart. I taste some deep juicy peach, but it’s not as delicious as it could be. It’s a nice enough cold cup of tea, but not one I need again. Thanks for sharing, getanzt!

This tastes like many other cherry teas I’ve tried. It doesn’t taste like cherries specifically, more like cherry candy. It’s a bit tart. It’s okay cold, just a bit fake tasting and not that delicious, really almost medicinal. I wouldn’t want another cup, but it was still fun to try from getanzt!

Finally digging into the spring swap samples from getanzt! The fruit flavor here was so clear and bright and tasty. I enjoyed a cup of this cold, though it wasn’t quite special enough to seek out.

drank Caribbean Nectar by Fusion Teas
2387 tasting notes

Thanks to getanzt for this sample! I taste mostly coconut, but I get a little bit of some milder fruit in there too. Maybe it’s apple. This is a fine tea, but I’d say it doesn’t really wow me. It’s certainly refreshing cold, just not a favorite.

This is a cranberry orange tea but it almost tastes kind of medicinal to me. It’s pretty bitter and I’m not a fan.

This is yummy! A sweet cherry flavor. I tried it hot but I bet it would be delicious cold as well! Will definitely order a larger bag of this to try it in some different ways.

Edited to add a note for myself: not buying this one again because it didn’t agree with my food sensitivities although it was super tasty :(

Smelling this straight out of the bag, it smells AMAZING. Spot on for pina colada with all the delicious pineapple, coconut, etc.

Unfortunately, it tastes more like apples and hibiscus with a hint of pineapple and coconut. After letting it sit a while, the creamy coconut starts to come through as an aftertaste. I have other pina colada teas that I prefer over this one. I’ll finish off my sample but probably won’t be repurchasing this one.

Flavors: Apple, Hibiscus, Pineapple

This smells SO delicious in the package. I added a bit of sweetener and it was perfect! Strong blueberry flavor, sweet and creamy.

drank Watermelon Lime by Fusion Teas
4210 tasting notes

Happy father’s day!  I should probably be drinking Lipton for the challenge today (sorry, Dad) but I don’t have any Lipton… and probably wouldn’t want to bother steeping it up if I DID have it, unless I was desperate for tea.  Instead, I will write a note for this old tea from StarFevre (thank you!) I bet this was a real gem when it was fresh.  Even now, the lingering lime and watermelon make you wonder why this isn’t more of a common combination.  Supposedly there is green tea here, but I don’t see much.  Otherwise, the hibiscus and rosehips don’t take over, which I’m thankful for, leaving a tangy yet refreshing cup.  I don’t notice stevia here.    I do notice the lime. I do notice the watermelon (flavoring at least) and it’s such an intriguing batch of ingredients I was holding my breath to look at Fusion’s website….. annddd… they DO still have this one for sale!  Good to know, but probably won’t be ordering any time soon (hopefully they still have it in stock when I DO want to order, because there are quite a few that I do want to order….but there are so many teas I want to order from various tea shops. If only there was a universal tea shop that sold ALL the teas from ALL the tea shops…would make things much easier and shipping much cheaper…)
