365 Days of Tea - Day 43: Xing Tea's Raspberry Green Tea.

Its been awhile; hasn't it? I've been through some pretty awful life things, which forced me to move in a pinch. I don't know when my reviews will be more constant again but I'll do my best. 

This is a fancy box from Xing. Its surprisingly heavy.

Tons of bubble wrap. 

I feel like they sent me like every flavor ever. I was pretty surprised and thankful.

Some swag: awesome stickers.

Also an awesome lanyard. (There is also a tee shirt but it is in the wash at the moment.)

Green Tea Raspberry. These cans are around the same size as the Arizona teas, so they are pretty big.

Its smells pretty good. I expected it to carry a more artificial raspberry scent but, it was actually really mellow, and didn't seem artificial at all. You can clearly get the aroma of the green tea, too. Which is unusually for a canned tea. Usually canned teas are loaded with tons of crap that the tea flavor is completely lost.

To my surprise, and amazement, the main taste is actually the tea. Unlike most brands the flavoring overwhelms the tea flavor. Here however, the raspberry taste is just there to add flavor, and not hide it. Its quite nice, and I really enjoyed it. It tastes very fresh and without tons of unnatural stuff in it. It actually tastes like green tea.

I am really thankful for Xing tea for sending me so much product, and swag. They are a pretty awesome company so far. I really enjoyed this tea, and will be drinking it again. I can easily say that if this is how they carry a lot of their other products they will always rate well with me.

There will be a slight break from my blog posts for a little while, I am rearranging somethings and will explain in due time. Don't worry, I'm still drinking tea.

365 Days of Tea - Day 42: Stash's Maple Apple Cider. (Herbal tea)

Zing tea was suppose to be here yesterday, so I'm a bit worried that it was a lost in the mail, but I wont bother too much about it until the end of next week. I'm also expecting tea from else where but I haven't received any conformation that it's been sent. Sooooo we'll see!

I might have higher expectations then I should for this, because it sounds like it would be amazing. Its unsweetened so it might be the first tea that requires sugar to be yummy.

Its typical tea colored, nothing special here.

Hot tea! (Actually cold room.)

Its carries a very sweet maple scent, with a hint of apple. It smells like it would be very sweet, but considering its maple flavored; it probably doesn't contain actual maple. So that being said it probably isn't very sweet at all.

Surprisingly there isn't a lot of flavor here. The maple is very subtle, and you mostly just taste a very light appley flavor. It tastes less like tea and more like flavored hot-water. It has a lot to be desired flavor-wise. It was kind of a disappointment to be honest.

Even after I overbrewed it, hoping it would draw out more flavor, it really didn't. It wasn't bad, It's not nearly as bad as others. It just wasn't really all that amazing either.

365 Days of Tea - Day 41: Good Earth's Sweetly Twisted.

This is posted late because: blogspot. Also I didn't do an infusion Friday this time around because I am feeling very under the weather and didn't want to risk consuming something disgusting. So I did some Good Earth tea, since I already drink it, but haven't review it yet.

Its a black tea mixed with rosehips and other things to give an interested twist on flavor.

Its actually really green colored, which I thought was a little strange. I found out it contains lemon peel and lemon oil, so that's good. Might have an interesting flavor.

Steaming hot! Just how I like it. (Actually it wasn't really all that hot, it was only steaming because its cold in this room. AC is blasting.)

Its.. very lemony but with a hint of berry. I think my problem with this is though, it smells very medicine-y. Like night time cold medicine. That doesn't mean its going to reflect in flavor, but its rather disappointing in aroma. It also smells mildly sweet, with a very tiny tingling of rosehip.

It's one of those teas that has a lot of potential to be extremely tart, but it also contains some sweeteners, so it actually balances that out. Its really tangy, I think the blueberry and lemon flavor blend really well to create this. Its also kind of sweet, which I sorta wish it wasn't. I tend to like non-sweetened teas.

I think its a pretty decent tea, I could find myself drinking it on a day off of work when I want something sweet. It isn't as complex as something normally is when it contains black tea, as the black tea itself is rather lost.
