100

If you didn’t already know, Brutaliteas originally started back in 2016 when owner Courtney decided to pursue and build a business centered around loose-leaf teas. When brainstorming ideas knew that she wanted to create something for a specific niche of people, and that’s when one of her friends suggested creating metal-themed teas since they were fans of the genre; and in a local Denny’s, Brutaliteas was born. Courtney launched the Brutaliteas website with the original 25 flavors later. Now six years later, Brutaliteas has over 100 flavors and themed blends incorporating music, horror, and puns into the beverage we all love.
Lycheep Trick is one of the Brutaliteas music-themed teas based on the band Cheap Trick; this blend is sweet and floral lychee rose green tea. As I already mentioned, Lycheep Trick is a green tea blend composed of green tea, apple pieces, rose petals, lychee, and rose flavors. When I first steeped this blend, I was a bit skeptical, don’t get me wrong, I love lychee, and I love rose; however, sometimes I’m not a fan of floral green tea blends.
Right off the bat, this blend smelled incredible. It reminded me of my favorite lychee jelly with a touch of summer rose. When steeped up, this blend was just beautiful, the smooth green tea base wasn’t bitter at all, and the sweet lychee carried the floral rose note so perfectly that this blend has become another favorite of mine from Brutaliteas.

Bio

My name is Gabriella but everyone calls me Gabby! I am a 20-year-old college student living in NY, majoring in History and Elementary Education. In my spare time, I post reviews and little pieces of writing on my blog, read books, play video games, write poetry, and love to cuddle up with my two-year-old hound dog Buddy.
I have interesting tea preferences, to say the least:
Definitely a mood drinker, and I tend to change my preferences often, if I have a bad experience with a specific flavor or tea type I end up avoiding it for a while, then dive back in later. I also prefer my teas plain but will sometimes make lattes.

Flavor Preferences:

Fruit: mainly melon, berry, and apple flavors are my favorites. I’m allergic to pineapple, passionfruit, and kiwi.
Dessert: Almost all flavors dessert-wise are welcome I especially love warm and comforting flavors like caramels, chocolates, cookies/biscuits, crumbles, and muffin.
Floral: I prefer violets, lavender, roses, and mallow flowers. Open to all florals, allergic to dandelions.
Spices: I love lightly spiced blends but some like the infamous Hot Cinnamon Spice is too much for me.
Herbs: My favorites are mint, rosemary, sage, thyme, and sometimes basil.
Favorite Companies:
Harney and Sons
Simpson and Vail
White 2 Tea
Plum Deluxe
Trader Nicks
Friday Afternoon
