Tasters Review:

I LOVE that Republic of Tea is thinking outside of the box on these really unique flavors especially with this Raw Green Bush Tea Line!!

The aroma of this Orange Red Carrot Raw Green Bush Tea is mellow yet pleasant.  I could smell mostly orange and carrot but I can tell there were other ingredients in there, too!  The Green Rooibos is perfect in this!  The flavors of the Orange and Carrot are really awesome together, too!  I could taste a V8 type comparison to it or a fresh Carrot Juice, even.  I really liked the Carrot and Orange together!  This is much smoother than I expected it to be.

The only thing I would change would be to intensify the overall flavor.  It’s so tasty I wanted it to be stronger so I tried what I like to call the DOUBLE SHOT!

2 bags = DOUBLE SHOT!!!!

The color was much more vibrant.  The aroma was stronger. The taste was magnified yet still smooth.

I will say that I would probably do this 2-bag method more because I do like it stronger!

What can I say…but…Carrots and Orange! YUM!

It’s a little more beet-like this time around too…using the DOUBLE SHOT Method (or Double Bag Method).

Neat offering!  I really like this!

Tasters Review:

April Showers from Element Tea smells like Raisins, Carrots, and candy…as I first move it from the envelop and put some in my cup.  It’s a bright reddish purple in color.  When I saw the color of the liquid I was so afraid – I was thinking there was Hibiscus in it BUT thankfully…there is NO Hibiscus!  That’s Beet Root I must be seeing!!!!

My first impression and tasting notes I could taste Carrots and Pineapple, then I can taste sugar or a candied-fruit. Then Lemon…and even some raisin. The after taste is that of Lemon and Apple. Nothing is overpowering and everything is playing nice with each other!

As it cools the carrot, lemon, pineapple, papaya, and candied fruit pop thru a bit more.

Honestly…this is most unusual but I am enjoying this much more that I ever thought I would!  If one ingredient is a bit more noticeable than the other ingredients it just might be the carrot but like I said before…nothing is too overpowering.
