I am trying to get my cupboard under control which involves bringing down the number of teas I have but also finishing off older teas. This is a tea that Arby was kind enough to share in June 2017. I haven’t gotten around to drinking it for whatever reason but today it seemed like an easy sipdown.
I debated about icing it or making it hot but I went with hot. Scentwise, both the dry leaf and steeped tea smell like root beer. Alas, tastewise, fennel really takes over and this leans more to licorice than anything else.
Thank you Arby for sharing! Even though this wasn’t to my tastes, it was fun to try a new tea company.
I was a little skeptical when first opening up this tea, as it contained copious amounts of orange peel, and I am not one for very pronounced citrus flavours. The aroma however, was enchanting. Right away I was completely captivated with the unexpectedly subtle tang of the orange and the wonderful smell of cinnamon.
As for the actual taste of the tea, I am incredibly happy with it! The taste of the orange is more sweet than sour, and the cinnamon taste is very pronounced, although not overly spicy. There seems to be a small note of allspice in their as well which is very nice. Now, the tea is called “Herbal Spice”, but Earth’s Herbal being odd (and moderately stingy) as it is, it doesn’t actually have a list of ingredients. The tea base itself tastes and appears to be a black tea (possibly Assam because of the look and taste), but I can’t be completely sure about it. Since it says Herbal I am assuming it is decaffeinated but I may be wrong as the flavour is still quite strong. In any case, it is a deliciously simple tea that definitely puts me into the Christmas season. I will also try it as a tea latte and review again.

Victoria had a very small Tea Festival this past weekend. It was a cute setup, outside in a little covered courtyard. Less than 10 tables/vendors. I enjoyed sampling some new teas and speaking with the vendors/tea crafters. Lily from Earth’s Herbal was sampling much of her line. The brands on her tea tins are fun and colourful. This black rose tea smelled just wonderful in the tin. Large rose petals intermix with black tea leaves. Brewed up it has a delicate, floral flavour that pairs nicely with the black tea. Quite enjoyable.
Flavors: Floral, Rose
I think this tea is super interesting not only in taste but also in ingredients! The company states that it contains the authentic ingredients used to make rootbeer (without all the sugar of course), which is super cool! If you’re expecting it to taste like a bottle of rootbeer, you are mistaken, but it still has some really lovely herbal flavours and that subtle rooty taste! Very good!

This is very, very tasty. IT doesn’t taste so much like rootbeer, but it does taste a lot like spearmint and sarsaparilla. I can also taste vanilla and some other herbs. It is really nice in the evening when you want to avoid caffeine.
