A strange tea, I bought it because I expected the oak note to be super weird, but its honestly a pretty chill tea, similar to earl grey because of the black tea and bergamot, but a little different. Its a nice change every now and then, and I’d recommend it to anyone who sees it while shopping the maze that is your local Ikea and is interested.

I realized this morning that when I was doing my tasting note recap of all the non-advent teas I had at the start of the month, I left out the Ikea teas I tried right at the very beginning of the month!

Truthfully I would probably normally not put a lot of stock into a tea line up from a company like Ikea – it’s sort of like buying a “Costco” or “Canadian Tire” name brand tea. Like, how good is it gonna be!? However, Ikea is sort of known for having some interesting and good food products – namely their Lingonberry foods. Which, like, how did they not put our a Lingonberry tea!? That feels like a HUGE miss to me.

So, with that knowledge I found myself curious about their assortment and along with a coworker we tried to get a box of each tea they carried. I think we ended up missing two?? I know we didn’t get the Elderberry Chai but I swear there’s one more we missed too. Anyway… five Ikea teas in total!

Now, my expectations for this teabag were lower simply because I don’t love bergamot but the oak was an interesting twist so I was keeping an open mind as much as I could! It was very abrasive and harsh though. If I had a chance to do it over I’d probably only steep for about a minute because I found this tasted aggressively bitter and almost chemically perfumed from how strong the bergamot was. Ooofff…

No oak to be tasted, either.

I like their lingonberry syrup for mixing with sparkling water! I agree, it’s odd that they don’t have a lingonberry tea.

I’ve tried their elderberry chai and had the same issues in terms of the base tea being incredibly bitter. Perhaps they’d do better with a tea lineup of herbals.

Of course I had to try it!

It’s a light EG, I don’t know about oak flavour though. It’s nice enough, and I’m enjoying drinking it.

(Also, hi! I’m still trying to drink through all my teas but they’re all the same old and this site is annoying on my phone, so I’m not on here much.)
