This one also has Rhodelia Rosea. I was looking forward to this one as the last blend, and was curious. I’m surprised that it went in the direction of oolong, and a gaba one. Actually, this is one of the weirdest blends of flavors I’ve had. It’s interesting that this one was thrown together after a dance party, and I was weirded out by the orange oil and pomegranate combo with cinnamon and ginger. Fortunately, it’s weirdly balanced and more on the fruity and creamy end. The cinnamon adds a slight kick, and the ginger adds more dimension to the orange and vanilla. The caramel is noticeable, but really just glues the other flavors together to prevent them crashing. I also tumbler styles a teaspoon of this tea, and I could rebrew and let the leaves sit four times over.
The description goes for fruit cake, but I don’t totally get that because it’s a lot creamier than fruit cake. It gives some Christmas vibes off for sure, but it’s hard to put my finger on it. I actually really like that for a Sagittarius, especially defying labels and commitment.
On the foolish buying into the marketing and health benefits stuff, the Rhodelia Rosea is one that may be helpful for diabetics, which is interesting. Some of the studies on it are limited, but there are some out there compared to placebos for lowering blood sugar and depressive disorders, so it’s in my ballpark of needs. On the other end, I would make this a gift or a one time sample. $13 for an oz is on the higher end for sure, and while the Gaba base is usually in the $8 range for an oz, I can see some justification for the added ingredients. However, I wouldn’t frequently get this one, but I’d definitely like some on hand. It’s also one of the stronger astrology teas for my preference anyway.
I’ve got more of their teas to review from a massive order, so there’s going to be a bunch of notes on the bougie So Cal company. I’m currently rating this one around 85, though I see it going into the 90s.
