Sipdown!

Thank you to Nicole for this sample!

I was beginning to feel like my palate was broken today because none of my teas were tasting how I imagined they should (or how the previous reviews made me think they should taste), but this one is good!

I don’t know why I assumed this would have bergamot, but a quick scan of the ingredients and I find I am wrong! Despite my longing for that flavor, I still am enjoying this tea!

It has a deep tea taste, but is still light and citrusy at the same time. Has a hint of a flowery note in the smell when I take a sip, but I’m not picking any of it up in the taste.

I’ve never understood what people meant when they said “astringent” in a tasting note, but this tea makes me feel like this would be an accurate description for this tea for some reason. Hmm.

Still getting the same super sweet aftertaste, but I’m thinking that might have to do with the soy I’m using now, rather than the teas. Not pleasant.

Pretty good!

EDIT: After reading other reviews, I feel I should add to this… Can’t taste the strawberry, but another reviewer also said don’t add milk to this and like I said I (mistakenly) added soy to this, so maybe that’s why I’m getting the weird aftertaste. I can’t break myself of this stupid soy habit! I need to stop it! With blacks I mostly want to smooth it out and make it able to drink quicker. I guess I could use ice instead! Ha!

In my experience, soy is generally fine in lemon or citrus-based teas. Regular milk might curdle, but soy just adds a creamy flavour and cools down the tea. I apparently have the same problem, in that I add soy milk to almost all my teas. :) Even grapefruit teas and LEMON teas.
