Energy Pu-Erh from Komo Tea

The dry leaves are colorful with a strong berry fragrance. The look and smell make me feel very confident in the health value of this tea. A lot of the Chinese ingredients, I hadn’t tried before.

Naturally Pu-Erh has caffeine, then there’s an herbal boost from being hand blended with adaptagen herbs (which I totally googled, I’m not THAT granola. They’re good for stress).

This cold brewed up to be a deep maroon but the mouthfeel was very smooth. At first sniff I thought I couldn’t handle the flavor, but the cinnamon balances the fruit really well, like Dean from Supernatural eating a cherry pie. Very doable.

Overall, I believe this is a great tea, at the same time, one of the ingredients is more of an acquired taste… that I just haven’t acquired yet.

Here’s the scoop!

Passion Berry Jolt from Tiesta Tea. . . . .

This tea is FIERCE. It’s a black tea with super-vibrant raspberry/passionfruit flavor. The tea is robust. The flavor is spiky. The flower petals are lovely.

Taster’s Review:

This is my second tea from Fit Life Tea Co. that I’m reviewing.  Again, I’m just going to review this like any other tea regardless of the weight loss benefits this tea is supposed to have.

I will admit right here and right now I am shocked.  I am shocked at how much I love this tea.

I steeped this with water from our coffee machine at work.  The water actually seems to work pretty well with green teas. About 3 minutes later I took my first sip and wow.  My mouth was happy.  This had such a fresh crisp clean green tea flavor.  Slightly grassy and rich with buttery tones.  I would dare to say this tea even had a touch of a silky like texture.  Something I wasn’t expecting at all.  I wasn’t also expecting the lovely yerba mate flavor that rounds this tea out nicely.  Hints of a roasted flavor work well with the buttery green tea richness.

What I can’t figure out is where this lovely almost jasmine like flavor is coming from.  I think that is the flavor I’m enjoying the most.  So pleasant and uplifting.  This tea brews up a beautiful lovely honey like color that just completes the tea. So very lovely.

Being a diet tea, I was ready to be either overpowered with the stevia that is included in the tea bag or underwhelmed with the lack of flavor.  Neither was an issue.  This is a great tea and I recommend it to others on the flavor profile I’m picking up.  I certainly am wanting another cuppa!
