IInstagram is both awesome and terrible when it comes to tea. Well really when it comes to anything. Through the App, I have learned of countless tea companies, a billion restaurants, and so much more. It truly is an effective marketing tool.
Tea Trunk is one of the tea companies I found through Instagram. I came across it and was instantly intrigued by their adorable packaging. Seriously, the elephant theme is just too cute. I was so captivated in fact that I found myself visiting their site…and then I found myself buying a tin of assorted tea bags.
If I am being honest I think I bought the tin because I liked the many different elephant wrappers on the tea bags more so than I liked the actual selection of teas it had to offer (standard flavors like vanilla black, rose oolong, etc.). Nonetheless, I paid more than $20 USD because I have no impulse control and just HAD to have it.
I have been slowly trying the teas since they have arrived and have yet to be blown away. None have been bad but none have really left a lasting impression either. Unfortunately this blend is just more of the same.
It is a slightly grassy green tea base with a hint of lemon flavor. Though the lemon is bright throughout the sip, it gets a bit pithy in the aftertaste. It is pleasant enough for now but not one that I will be needing again. If you are looking for a simple lemon green tea, with adorable packaging, this is for you but for me I don’t think I could justify the price again.
Here’s the scoop!
