7 Tasting Notes
Okay I need more of this tea in my life.
The first thing that you notice about the tea is the colour.
The mate produces this lovely shade of green when brewed.
Another lovely feature about this tea is the fact that there’s a great balance between the mate and the citrus; neither one overpowers the other.
Being both a fan of mate and citrus, I think I have to go pick some up next time I visit Teaopia.
I really enjoy this tea.
Even though it is called Devil’s Chocolate, the tea really doesn’t have that much chocolate flavour, it tends to be more of an underlying flavour rather than one that’s right up front.
The flavours that are immediately present are that of cloves and ginger, which are a little overpowering but are still quite nice.
Overall, a really lovely tea.
This tea was…not very good.
When I smelled it from the package, it was promising. It smelled sweet and light and well…like watermelon.
When I brewed it however, the sweetness was overpowering, and instead of tasting like watermelon, the predominant flavour was peach.
I tried it again iced, but I still didn’t like it.
It was still unpalatable; incredibly sweet, and it tasted like artificial peach flavouring.
