Organic Cheery Fruit Tea
Honey brings out the ﬂavours of this original blend. Lovely natural sweetness with a hint of orange.
Chocolate Blueberry Organic
This blueberry chocolate tea combines the maltiness of Assam black tea, the sweet aroma of blueberries, and a creamy chocolate finish. Add a touch of honey and it makes a wonderful dessert!
Blood Orange Smoothie
This creamy blend of naturally caffeine–free South African red rooibos, orange, and vanilla is herbal bliss!
Clouds & Mist Organic
Clouds and Mist organic green tea, also known as ‘yunwu’, has a compelling aroma of smoky, citrus and vegetal. Its earthy taste, reminiscent of sweet, roasted artichokes, is well-rounded, with a slight note of toasted pecans.
I enjoy "fruity" teas, so I thought this box was great! The Blood Orange Smoothie was really good! I found Clouds & Mist didn't really do it for me, it didn't have much flavour and same thing with Organic Cheery Fruit Tea. I thought the blends were unique and interesting though. Tea Sparrow is a good way to try new teas which I've done a lot of lately.
