I really was blown away by how strong this smells. I’ve had a few Mai Tai cocktails in my time … you know how they say there’s a time and place for everything and that time and place is college? Yeah … so, I found Mai Tai cocktails to be a very refreshing beverage in college. And this … when I opened the pouch, it brought me back to those college days.
The brewed tea has a subdued fragrance, it is not quite as overpowering as the dry leaf. The flavor is really nice – the green tea is buttery and sweet, and it’s a really interesting dimension of flavor to this once familiar cocktail. Tangy, sweet, and delicious … and even better iced than it is hot.
