721 Tasting Notes
Dry it smells of strawberries and blueberries.
Steeping you get more of the black tea and the fresh fruit smell is slowly going away.
Taste of strawberry medicine and sadly I am not a fan :( It smelled really good dry with the fruit and such but the black tea just overpowers it. It tastes like the traditional black tea with artificial flavoring.
Decided to do this one iced today. Placed the rest of my tea leaves in a mason jar and kept it in the fridge overnight. Pretty good but got bitter for the long steep. Not the best quality jasmine. Only $12 for a 2oz bag so in line with price and quality with the basic “house” jasmines out there.
Had this a while ago. It’s just okay.
Boyfriend bought this for me a while ago, and he bought me a pretty large tin! Don’t have the heart of tossing it but I’ve been giving it to a few friends here and there. My sister absolutely loves this tea as a latte though! I find a floral latte a bit weird tasting but hey, you do you
Flavors: Floral, Lychee, Melon, Soap

Needed a tea that had no caffeine and this is one that I found in my stash. Legit all my tea is probs so old I really should toss it all… I’m determined to get through them all though! My boyfriend works in an African themed resort and he’s super into African everything when it comes to Food and Beverage. I told him about this tea and he automatically goes “Rooibos?” and I go “NOPE Honeybush” and he got v excited. Something new, something different, still drinks somewhat similarly to a rooibos though.
Flavors: Wet wood, Wood
I’m relighting my Tea love, all thanks to my boyfriend who got me a super cute and easy to use travel mug so it’s so easy to bring tea to work now!
Got this tea last year and I only got around to drinking it now…. oops… Was so excited to give this a try since it smelled AMAZING but the taste wasn’t as great. Maybe because I’ve had it for a while but idk. Still good ish, but not what I was expecting. Bright christmassy smell once you open the tin, the taste gets a little lost and muddled. Not as christmassy as I would like it to be.
Woke up with a sore throat and I thought that this bit of “spice-y” tea would help. Yes it does and it’s helping soothe my throat, just not a fan of the taste! Also I currently don’t own any ginger or lemon teas… I should get my hands on some but it’s been my goal to get through my teas to at least half before buying more!
Flavors: Cardamom, Musty
