I was standing in line at TJ Maxx yesterday. Even though it was snowing (or maybe BECAUSE it was snowing) I’d gone to purchase a couple of pieces of spring/summer clothing. As I stood, looking out the wide window at the nasty snow, I felt like throwing a tantrum. Like a two year old who isn’t getting what they want. Full blown tantrum, like throwing myself to the floor, drumming my heels and screaming. We’ve had way too much winter this spring in North Dakota. :(
As I was waiting I saw a few Teavana tubs of bagged teas crammed in with the rest of the cart bait lining the checkout queue. This one appealed because it said good hot or cold. Yesterday it was snowing, so that would mean hot tea. But who knows? Next week could be 80. So iced tea. But last night I tried a cup hot.
Anyway, sorry for whining. Here is what I thought of the tea. It was quite good. It brewed up fairly pale, which is normal for a tisane with no tea or rooibos. The flavor was light but with a nice tart zing. Not like hibiscus-sour zing. I do not like hibby, and made sure to check the ingredients to be sure there wasn’t any. I think the zing would have been the citrus. So I will have no trouble drinking these 12 tea bags.
