Tea Sparrow: Valentine’s Tea Box

February 20, 2014

Strawberry Champagne (caffeinated green tea): Sweet and seductive aromatic fruit flavor w a breeze of champagne - 2

J's comment > very pleasant fruity scents, but you can't taste the fruitiness (not that I mind, I'm not a fan of drinking teas that taste like fruit, I'd drink juice if I wanted a fruit liquid); didn't get the champagne at all though; just a clean green tea taste on the palate; a winner if you'd like to smell the fruit but not taste it.

From Tea Desire

Lavender Earl Grey (caffeinated black tea) - 2

J's comment > not bad, smooth and subtle

From Rishi Tea

Organic Chai Rooibos (herbal rooibos tea): Blend of Rooibos & six organic spices - 2

J's comment > kind of sweet for a rooibos, but not overwhelmingly strong; I'm not a fan of rooibos teas in general, but this one I can drink without grimacing

From Gathering Place

Organic White Rose (caffeinated white tea): Organic white tea w organic rose buds - 2

J's comment > totally didn't get the rose at all after the tea was steeped (you can smell it when you open up the packet though); slightly sweet, but even w this trace amt of sweetness, I thought it really didn't go well w the tea; a surprising low for me as I have a slight preference for floral teas.
