I love tea. Hot or cold, I am always brewing a cup or pot of tea. Last week the awesome people at Fantastica Tea sent me a few new flavors to try. I promised them I’d give an honest review because I refuse to print a review of something that I don’t believe in or actually like.
These teas come in the most unusual flavors! And I like that about them. They have flavor combinations that I’d never thought would be good, but they work!
My favorite is the Coconut Black tea. It is a robust black tea, but the coconut flavor is prominent. When I first made it hot, I wasn’t so sure. But with a little cream and sugar, I was in love. I’ve even made it and chilled it without sugar, and it is amazing. Consider making it a latte!
The Smoked black tea is unusual. It reminds me of a campfire, and I like that! I found that with some frothed milk, this became something I couldn’t wait to drink again later.
The Mint Green is perfect. The flavor isn’t too loud or strong, leaving it with a fresh taste. This is my morning wake-up drink. And just as traditional is the English Breakfast, it is one of the more full-bodied teas, and I love the crisp flavors that are sweet and calming for a morning start.
However, I didn’t like the Ginger black tea. It has a very bold flavor that was just a bit too much for me.
The teas are great. Not overly packaged and a straightforward and clean design. Each flavor comes in adorable little cardboard boxes, and I found that they were easy to toss in my bag and take along with me on my travels.
What could improve?
We all could use some improvement here and there. Fantastica's website drives me crazy. Please get some help! I love you, and I want you to succeed! But honestly, the website is a mess.
Don’t let the website discourage you. The shipment came fast. The ingredients are top-notch. And I think they are a new business and websites are just not their thing.
I like them. They are delightful to work with and I know that it just takes a little time to get things sorted out.

So if you are looking to try something new. I really do suggest that you give them a chance. The tea is worth it!
Do you love honest reviews? What should we try next?
