Ahh. Thanks to KallieBoo! I got to taste a sample of this. Okay, or 3 cups of it. :). Today was going horribly, ended up with me crying in the middle of a bank, but this tea was there to comfort me when I got home.
The dry leaf smell is a little underwhelming. Sweet and tangy but subdued, the green tea really stood out to me. I was a little hesitant making it because of the fact that I like the flavors in the tea. I’m not good with green tea, but KallieBoo gave me nice little instructions that helped me. Steeped it for 3 minutes at 175 degrees. Normally, I would have boiled it for about 5 minutes.
The color is a nice dark orange and again, smells more like green tea than any tropical flavor. I let this cool and threw it in the fridge for when I would actually have the time to drink it. Today was that time.
I was pleasantly suprised. It didn’t get great reviews on here, but maybe its becuase I like overly sweet things. It’s very sweet and a little tart, with more of the taste of mango than any other fruit. Reminds me of being on a tropical vacation.
Thanks again KallieBoo! You gave me my escape for the day :)
