I like the presentation of the tea box, and the blue tea is a very pretty color. I'm not pleased with the price for 20 bags though. I am an avid tea drinker and very particular about what brands I religiously buy. This is a fun box of tea for special occasions or as a gift, but not something I would buy regularly at this price. Plus, I prefer compostible bags.
It is pungent, mellow, mild and so so so relaxing. It can be taken without any sweeteners because the taste is so well balanced. If you choose to sweeten it, it only requires very minimal amounts. This reminds me of German or blue chamomile essential oil, compared to Egyptian or Roman yellow chamomile. It’s as if I’m really zipping from blue chamomile tea. The blend is so masterful the flavor tones were emulated so beautifully. Aside from Yuzu Honey, this is my new favorite tea ever.
The first thing I noticed when opening the blue presentation box was how pretty it was. It made me feel like I was having a treat. I loved the green leaves at the end of the infusers, they are decorative and highly functional. Each flavor in my box was delicious. The whole Tea Forte experience was a delight for my senses from the vibrant colors to the distinct light flavors. I can’t wait to share it with my friends.
