This tea is a big no for me. I blame the sugar — it is truly very sweet (8 grams of carbs, of which 7 grams are sugars) per one flower? Don’t get me wrong, but it is hardly drinkable when I have dissolved it in my 300 ml mug. And they wrote you can drink the dust on bottom. No, no thank you Tea Drops. Moreover, it looks like, as my brother suggested — only partially digested food. SIPDOWN 74

Luckily, he have no idea how sweet it is. But it is way too much. No base noticed and no rose. Artificial bergamot. But hardly to detect anything but sweet drink.

Finished it. But bleeeh. Shae, as it is from you, thank you I could try it. But I won’t try it again. And I wouldn’t seek for it when “shopping”.

Flavors: Bergamot, Sweet

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 10 OZ / 300 ML

Oh gross, it looks like partially digested food?? I got a few of these in a Sips by box but I haven’t tried one myself yet. Can’t say I’m really looking forward to it now. :/

Sorry! But yup, it doesn’t dissolve competely and when you swirl it with a spoon it isn’t much pleasing.

I was given samples of Tea Drops teas and they were consistenly dreadful, so you are not alone, Martin. shudders

Lexie Aleah

I had the same issue very gritty since it doesn’t dissolve entirely and then accidentally drinking the dust if you are say working on a paper.

I didn’t find the particles to bother me, I just let them settle to the bottom of the cup and then didn’t drink the very bottom.

The sugar on the other hand, is WAY too much. :X

Shae

Has anyone tried crushing the flower and mixing with a little water to form a paste first? I was thinking of trying that but wondering if the particles are even small enough to dissolve.

Cameron B.

@Shae – I doubt it, the particles are small pieces of tea leaf, sort of like fannings in a teabag.

Martin Bednář

I suppose that fannings in tea bags are sometimes even bigger! But yep, so much sugar! Lexie exactly! So awful drinking the bottom. I tried to don’t drink that, but of course, I wanted to drink the most I could.

Shae

Thanks, Cameron – that’s too bad, I was hoping it might work!

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
