Taster’s Review:

Being sick is just too much! Especially after having a wonderful wedding and fantastic honeymoon.  The last thing I needed was to come home and get sick. Blah! Oh well! The way she goes boys. . . .  (Any Trailer Park Boys fans out there?)

I was excited to see this blend in my newest box to review.  The only flavor that I have been wanting lately is grapefruit.  Coffee and other teas right now just don’t have that same draw only because of this wicked cough and sore throat I’ve got going on.  This tea sounded like heaven!

Brewed this up with boiling water and allowed it to brew for about 10 minutes or so.  I wanted to get as much flavor as I could out of the sample.

Poured the brew into my cup and just sat and admired the gorgeous pink appearance of the tea.  I took a sip and my heart sang.  This tea tasted so good on my poor throat.  Soothing and refreshing.  I couldn’t pick up all the flavors that are listed in the description but the two that I could really pick up where the citrus flavor and the eucalyptus.  They both had such a soothing and calming manner about them. Such a lovely fruity flavor that stays with you even after your last sip.  I was so pleased and happy!

I’m not sure how I would like this tea when I’m at 100% but this would be a great one to keep on hand for those days where you just aren’t feeling up to your old self.  My cup was gone in no time and I headed straight back into our breakroom to prep more water.  This tea is definitely a keeper! Can’t wait to try this tea when I’m feeling more like myself again.

Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
