Your Most Unusual Tea?

I recently attended an event, including a breakfast,
with a group of 16 ladies,
most of whom I had never met. 
You know how chit-chat goes around the table...
The lady sitting to my right chose green tea as her breakfast beverage.
Well, you know me well enough to know that led to a discussion about tea.
She asked me what the most unusual tea is that I have tasted/drunk. 
The one that came to mind was the Spring Green Tea, a green tea with vegetables
(corn, carrots and peas) mentioned in a recent blog post.  
I thought I would ask my readers and tea friends that same question. 
What is the most "unusual" tea you have drunk? 
I know some of you have traveled to exotic locations,
and have tasted several interesting teas. 
Note: I am not asking about your most memorable tea experience,
because that post and question will come later. 
Looking forward to hearing from you!
What is the most unusual tea or herbal infusion you have drunk?

Hmmm...I don't know! I haven't tried all that many "unusual" teas. Maybe the Hibiscus Key Lime by The Republic of Tea. A friend gave me a teabag to sample and it became one of my favorites. In searching online for a store nearby that carries it (the closest one is 2 hours away!) I found the Tea with Friends blog and from there links to several others, including yours, that I now read daily!

Hmmm, well, much as I enjoy trying different teas, I don't think I've sipped anything very unusual, with the possible exception of some yucky packets of "liquid tea concentrate" earlier this year!

I know I have tasted some unusual teas, but at the moment my mind can't think what they might be. The David's Tea I have right now is quite out of the ordinary for me with bits of candy and fruit in them and highly fragrant. Not my usual tea, but enjoying nontheless.

Horsetail Grass Tea. It was on a Winter afternoon in the home of a dear friend who is gluten-and-several-other-things free. The leaves came in a pretty brushed steel can, with a hand-inscribed label, and I'm sure it was from a store beyond my own shopping scope.

It looked lovely in the beautiful stoneware cup, steam rising, but when the aroma neared my face, I just did not like even the thought of it---like inhaling wet hot hay.

I just kept tiny-sipping til it grew cold, I think, because I love the friend dearly. She offered to bag me a few spoonfuls for home, but I somehow managed to decline.

I don't know what it's supposed to do for you, or its medicinal purposes, but I think I'll pass.

I'm pretty open to different teas, but I was really disappointed with the lavender tea. I love lavender, but don't like to drink it...too flowery. I do enjoy the Butchart Garden's bachelor button blend.
