I bought this tea at a local store in Canada many years ago and it was one of the few teas my boyfriend absolutely loved. It was so juicy and delicious! So when we ran out, I tried to find it in stores again, and couldn't. All the shop owners said "Tea Forte has raised their prices so it's too expensive to stock now." So I went online to order this tea and paid the shipping because I thought it was worth it for this delicious tea. Well, it arrived in its sleek new black packaging, and we brewed a couple cups. Yuck!! It tastes nothing like it did before!! It's not juicy at all, it just tastes bland and weird. We are very disappointed and will have to try some other brands to find a suitable juicy replacement. :(
This herbal blend wasn’t what I had expected from the description. I was looking for a fruity herbal tea, and while fresh out of the can this tea smells great I couldn’t work with it after it steeped. The smell hit my nose as I went for a drink, sour notes and I think the licorice turned me off right away. When I took a sip the sour and licorice together were too strong for my taste. But I learned something about my personal preferences, to avoid licorice, so not a total loss. I’m sure plenty of others will enjoy this herbal blend, but I continue on my search.
