What For Teas Sake says about themselves (taken from online source):
That’s the short answer as to why we created For Tea’s Sake but as with most things, it runs much deeper than that. At its foundation is the passion and love for the world’s most universally enjoyed beverage. It’s the understanding of how the simple act of enjoying a delicious cup of steeped tea, whether alone or with friends, brings comfort and solace to the mind, body and soul. It is an appreciation for the artistry involved in creating unique and distinctive blends. With all of this in mind, we embarked on a journey to master the art of custom blending teas.
Without question, we knew to achieve the type of blends worthy of this mission; we must start with the world’s highest quality teas. That’s why For Tea’s Sake’s blends are globally sourced from tea farms throughout the world. To ensure nothing but the highest quality tea leaves are included with our blends we select only the top 5% of each crops’ yield. These quality teas are hand-blended with other natural ingredients such as fruits and herbs to deliver a truly satisfying and memorable tea experience.
Our mission has taken us all over the world; learning more about each specific regions tea specialty but also the cultural significance tea plays in each. We were enlightened by the knowledge imparted by masters of their craft and learning that each country and region offered their own unique teas and flavors.

Here is what I think
You know that I do not read the ingredients before I review a tea, I find the challenge of smell and taste to compare to what the ingredients are enjoyable. I don’t like to know before I “guess”. Generally I nail it but this tea was an enjoyable challenge with it’s mix of both Oolong and Green tea.
What I liked
This is a tight single leaf tea combination of both oolong and green tea. The scent is very light as well as the flavor, I love that this tea is complete with two ingredients yet offers so much. Not vegetal, bitter and no aftertaste.
What I did not like
Now this is sort of a like/not like comment. First I have to say I am not a fan of a tea that will make you thin or help you loose weight. But For Teas Sake did a great job expressing the need for diet and exercise, because there is no miracle tea that will make you thin, it can help your appetite but you really need to work at it, there is no miracle weight loss and I applaud For Teas Sake for representing a great product in a genuine way!
Until next sip pinkies up and face the wind! You got this!
