Here’s test #2 of my old-stash sipdown.

Let me be clear: I have no idea where this tea came from. My mom moved overseas to teach and my dad was left with her cupboard full of teas. He kept the regular black teas and gave me the rest. I think this was part of that collection.

When I took it out of the sachet, the ginger was overpowering. It almost hurt my nose.

Colour-wise, the hibiscus in this tea makes for a beautiful red colour. I can’t taste any peach, though the ginger is quite lovely. In fact, all I taste is hibiscus and ginger.

Overall, I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy this one. I may just finish the stash and move on.

Flavors: Hibiscus

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

My foray into steeping happened with tin of Oreo cookie and salted chocolate caramel tea, back in college in 2009. I probably bought them for the novelty more than the taste— which sounds like a reason for many of my college-era purchases. The lovely little tea store was bought out by David’s Tea soon after I finished college. While I do enjoy getting tea from places other than malls, it’s difficult to find quality without going online. Most of my stash ends up being from there due to convenience.

I’m an early childhood educator. Tea is a big part of my daily life. I’ve yet to find anything as soothing and as energizing as it.

I’m on a big kick of blacks and herbals, especially straight ones.

90-100: Must get more of this. One sample isn’t enough.
80-89: Great! Would drink it again sometime
60-79: Decent, but probably won’t go back for more
40-59: Glad I tried, but one cup is enough
~40: No thanks. Never again!
