I found a neighbor who is into tea!!!!!! We’ve swapped a few teas and drank some tea this afternoon out on my screened porch and watched the wildlife out on the pond. It was truly a wonderful day.
The tea was an interring mix of curled up leaves, dried seeds(?) or berries, fluffy stuff that I can’t think how to describe. It has an unexpectedly vegetal scent. Maybe I should get out a thesaurus. The web site does not say what is in the tea.

I followed the directions my friend gave me. It seemed like a short steep for an herbal. It has a vegetal taste and virtually no berry taste (to me, but I have a slightly stuffed up nose due to allergies). There is no predominant flavor. Actually there is very little flavor at all.

The company is an herb farm in Illinois . It looks like it has a lot of nice herbs, teas and products. It’s very much a mom and pop type place.
I feel bad that that I don’t like the tea, as I would prefer to give them a high rating. I always want to support small businesses. I’d like to try some of their other things but I don’t know…. It’s only about an hour away. Maybe my friend and I will have an outing so I can try some more of their products.

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

Maybe try a longer infusion time? And sometimes berry teas need a touch of sugar for the flavor to pop for me.

Retired first grade teacher. I tend to like dessert type/herbal teas as a substitute for sweet treats; flavored black teas and mates to get that energy that I am often lacking ;-p
My husband of 43 years thinks I’m nuts regarding the whole tea thing… but he bought me a Breville for Christmas, so what can I say. :-D
My other interests are reading (books go well with tea :D) and beading. I volunteer at my “old” school teaching reading and I volunteer for the blind. I am trying hard to lose weight ( I have now lost 40 lbs and I’m looking good in my skinny jeans, IMHO) I am now walking about 4.5 miles a day and I am trying to do some core work for about 30 min. 3x a week.

I have been watching Doctor Who for 33years. In case you can’t tell my avatar is two daleks drinking tea! I am always open to swapping Doctor Who books for tea. I have about 120 Doctor Who books that I am eager to send some to a fan. :D Let me know if you would like any books! I love that so many people have begun watching DW!

Also I love swaps, pm me if you’d like to do a swap.

Since I find others’ rating legends helpful, I added my own.

95-100 A once in a lifetime experience; the best there is; will keep this stocked until the cows come home

90-94 First rate; top notch; really terrific; will definitely buy more

80-89 Excellent; likely to become a favorite, will likely buy more

70-79 Very good; would enjoy again, might buy again if in the mood for this particular one or a better, similar version not available or it’s on a really good sale :-)

50-69 Good; wouldn’t pass up if offered, but probably wouldn’t buy again unless craving this particular flavor

Below 50 Meh! Wouldn’t bother drinking it again.
