Always been partial to Marc Bolan and T Rex but this is TEA Rex, a very different way to brew tea. It's an infusion revolution apparently here, now that's a T Rex song if ever I heard it but I'm torn here people, I'm torn!!
As soon as I had a try with this product I had already made my mind up that it wasn't going to work and it was a load of rubbish. Then the infusion happened and I actually changed my mind. These sachets look as if they belong in a stir fry not my brew so that was my first issue and everyone knows how I feel about fruity tea.
These little packets are filled with fruity goodness and roots, there is vitamin C and no artificial rubbish in them. They are suitable for anyone on a vegan diet and are caffeine free too so a health drink you could say. My big huge problem though......is it tea?
I popped the contents of the sachet into the little filter which neatly sits on your chosen mug and I then poured hot water in as instructed. The flavours then flowed out. It didn't look like tea but then we are dealing with the fruity variety and it rarely looks like a mug of PG eh? After brewing I discarded the filter and had a taste, thinking this is going to taste like dishwater, not that I drink a lot of dishwater. It didn't taste of anything awful, in fact it was lovely.
Yes a fruity tea drink that I actually really liked. It did taste genuinely very natural which is what it is all about. I tasted the Rhubarb Redcurrant flavour which includes:
Diced Rhubarb Stalks 43.5%
Grated Root Ginger 25%
Mashed Redcurrants 17.5%
Sliced Whole Lemon 14%
There are other flavours too such as Tumeric Black Pepper and Lemon Ginger Tumeric. I still don't class it as tea though as it doesn't seem to include any tea which is my dispute. If you do like a warm fruity brew though and with natural ingredients then this is totally for you. You can infuse as a cold drink to so I imagine these drinks would be quite refreshing on a warm day.
So there you go, I totally thought I would hate it but ended up quite liking it so never judge a brew by it's cover, always grab a taste just in case. If you would like to know more about Tea Rex then pop to their website at
