1760 Tasting Notes
This was an interesting tea for me. Let me start off by saying that I’ve never actually eaten goji berries so I have NO idea what they’re supposed to taste like.
Dry and while steeping the tea had a fruity sort of smell that actually reminded me of strawberries more than anything else. The taste at first is slightly tart though still fruity, followed closely with maybe a bit of faint bitterness that might be the matcha at work. There’s also a sweet aftertaste to this tea that I suspect may be from the licorice powder not the goji berries.
Still I’m leaning towards liking this tea, if only for the novelty and the fact that for once Stash has produced a fruit tea that isn’t overwhelmed by a ton of hibiscus.
Made a pot for myself and the boyfriend this morning, as we both stayed up until ridiculous hours studying for midterm exams.
Steeped for 4 min and added skim milk. I was afraid the rose would be overpowering with the extra steeping time but that wasn’t really the case (or maybe we were in too much of a rush to notice).
I’m not a huge rooibos fan but I LOVE this particular tea. It has sort of a creamy, vanilla/amaretto flavour to it and it makes my tastebuds squee in delight.
It’s filled with beautiful blue, red, and yellow flower petals, though I have no idea if they actually lend anything to the taste. It does make for a colourful, cheer-inducing tea to look at.
