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!

Taster’s Review:

First off, I am not a fan of lavender in teas.  I feel that the lavender adds a bite to the tea and creates a overwhelming fragrance to the tea.  When I received this tea and noticed that there was lavender in it, I was a bit worried.  Lately I have been really trying to get myself to not drink the teas that I know I will like.  Like how you encourage a child to try different foods, I’m taking that same plane of thought in my tea drinking.  I have been trying some pretty unusual teas and having a fantastic time. I have discovered that I enjoy rose petals in tea.  After having this tea, I am ok with lavender now being in tea.

This tea is presented in a marvelous tin.  The label on this package is awesome.  I love the way The Random Tea Room packages their teas.

I added two scoops of tea into my Breville One Touch and hit the herbal button (212F-5 min).  Once the tea was ready, I poured the liquid into two mugs, admiring the coloring of the tea.  There was an almost purple color to it.

Jason and I took our first sips and we both looked at each other and smiled.  First sip and I’ve fallen in love with another tea.  This tea is a perfect herbal tea.  Relaxing, soothing, comforting, and cooling.  Everything you would want in an herbal tea and more.  The chamomile provides a baked dessert background while the peppermint (which is subtle) adds in just a touch of a cooling aesthetic.  There is also a touch of a fruity flavor through the sip and the lavender delivers an ever so slight floral note.  A lot of flavors in this blend, but they all work together and play nicely in my cuppa.  I’m impressed with yet another of The Random Tea Room’s blends.

I was able to get about 4 infusions out of this one session with this tea.  Even tried it iced and thought this herbal tea delivered a solid flavor.  You can’t ask for a better herbal!
