I think with the expansion of my collection, it might be a little wrong not to share my pretentious love for tea. This will be a review that describes flavor through sarcastic assimilation. If you’re not sure what I mean, fret not because you’ll get it pretty soon.
Oh, by the way all these opinions are of unsweetened herbs. Sugar distorts flavors too much for me. Also I don’t know of that many teas, I just like to pretend I do. Okay, let’s commence:
Black Tea: this ubiquitous herb tastes as if I swallowed a handful of unflavored seeds until my tongue went a little dry. On days when headaches and sonorous noises are prevalent, this is a perfect option.
Black Tea with Strawberry: as a warm drink this is honestly disgusting. But it’s fantastic as an iced tea. The superfluous amount of sugar makes a lot of sense with ice.
Green Tea: seaweed. This tastes like seaweed. And I love it. On an empty stomach, this makes me feel like I’m aware of my fitness and that I work out and things. Basically it fills me with lies.
Green Tea with Mint: what I drink in the morning and at lunch and in the evening and at night and forever basically this is the best. The seaweed-ness is overshadowed by the potency of the mint and a healthy kind of feel cloaks the stomach. It’s light with distinct flavor.
Green Tea with Forest Fruits: again this is disgusting. It tastes like shampoo, as my five year old brother articulated quiet faithfully. I haven’t tried this as iced tea yet but I can imagine it would feel a little less artificial on the tongue.
Green Tea with Jasmine: floral seaweed. This calms me down like no other drink. It is in fact in need of some sweetening but I still drink it pure as a placebo that helps me believe I’m healthy.
Green Tea with Lemon and Honey: basically my life. This incredibly luxurious tea feels best when I drink it excessively until I burp its flavor. My burping feels clean. Yes, I just used burping and clean in the same sentence. When you try it you’ll stop judging my burps of fantastic aroma!
Apple Tea: basically candy, only drinkable when in social situations of peer pressure.
Orange Tea: again basically candy, only drinkable when in social situations of peer pressure.
Lemon Tea: may be drinkable outside of social pressure but probably not because it still tastes like candy. [I’m an adult! I drink real tea okay! My apologies to the fruit teas of the world, you’re real I promise, don’t be hurt.]
And there you have it. My very unsolicited but very much required and slightly puerile review on some herbs with warm water poured over them.
