This incredible, luxurious box of tea is perfect for celebrating spring! I love the variety of tea included – it’s like a world tour of tea from India, Japan, and Africa rotating through my cup. Each tea is complex and unique, with juicy fruit and sweet flavors complimenting the floral flavors without overpowering the tea itself. This collection is like joy in a box, with new flavors and bright artwork complementing the indulgent tea experience I've come to expect from Tea Forte. There are just enough pyramids that I can justify sharing some as I keep the rest to myself.
I love sampling the various Tea Forte tea collections - they are a brilliant way to explore teas that you might not typically be interested in purchasing by themselves and to discover gems such as Darjeeling Quince. This is the only black tea included in the new Soleil assortment, and it proved to be a lushly flavored tea that I enjoyed immensely. It has a lovely citrus brightness to it, with a whisper of sweetness from the quince, and a wonderfully fragrant aroma - a gem!
I prefer a medium to bold flavored teas and the new Vanilla Rose does not disappoint!! The Soleil collection is just in time as we transition from winter into spring. It has something for everyone. I have tried all of Tea Fortē teas. The fragrance/taste of the Vanilla Rose is among my favorite. I also tried the new Wildflower Honey Citrus. The flavor is light and crisp. Wild Berry Hibiscus is also delicious.
I usually stick to the white and green tea lines. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the black tea-Darjeeling sample. It was much fruitier than expected. All others were very light, floral and a wonderful nod to my evening palette. Cherry Blossom and Hibiscus are my top faves, but all flavors are amazing.
This collection of teas is very refreshing. The Wildflower Honey Citrus and Vanilla Rose have a delightful aroma and are delicate. Cherry Blossom was already one of my favorites, and I'm just getting to know Darjeeling Quince and Wild Berry Hibiscus. I will make sure this collection is regularly stocked in my home. How beautiful it is in presentation and in taste. Beautiful in so many aspects!
The Soleil sampler offers a wide variety for a tea lover. While I am willing to try new items, had I not received the sampler I may not have tried Vanilla Rose- I was impressed by the notes. The tea was quite delicious- not overly floral nor too sweet. This sampler is great for anyone who enjoys fruity and floral teas.
When I received the presentation box, I was absolutely floored by how beautiful the artwork is; I showcase it in my cabinet with the glass door where it can be seen at all times; it is so aesthetically pleasing! The assortment of the tea inside the box is the epitome of Spring: the aromas lift me into a garden filled with blooming flowers. There is not one tea from this box that I did not relish. Every single one from this collection is such a delight to enjoy plain, or with a couple rock sugar, maybe even add a touch of honey, and a light splash of milk! I highly recommend this box, as a gift or for personal enjoyment!
This is my favorite collection of tea! My favorite out of the collection is Wildflower Honey Citrus! That floral and citrus undertone is amazing! I bet it would taste even better if I actually put honey in it! I was surprise by the Cherry Blossom one. I didn't expect myself to like the tart cherries in it so much. I love hibiscus so Wild Berry Hibiscus is my second favorite in the collection. The Vanilla Rose was a nice combination. I definitely taste the vanilla more then the rose in it. Even the Darjeeling Quince was a level better then my usual darjeeling tea. This is an amazing collection and definitely a great gift to give others.
