62 Tasting Notes
In 2012, I gave a 100 note to this tea. It had became my favorite of all time. I was so excited when I heard its comeback for 2014. This year? Not my favorite anymore. Why? THEY ADDED SPEARMINT. Why in the world would you add spearmint to it? It was PERFECT 2 years ago. Now, it has a strange spearmint gum taste. The old version was DEFINITELY BETTER. I’m still gonna give it a 90 this year because I can’t stop drinking it anyway. But it’s a lot less awesome now.
I tasted it as a TOTD today and I liked it. It’s a bit sad that I decided not to buy black teas anymore (I drink coffee in the AM and after that I’m looking for something with weak caffeine). Otherwise, I would have bought it. I loved its sweetness and the hot spicy final. It’s a win for me :)
So I was working in the garden this afternoon and I had to drink. I decided to get an iced tea. Since I had this one for 1 week and hadn’t tried it yet, that was the perfect occasion. I steeped it hot, then poured it on ice. I fell in love. It was yummy and I don’t know what else to say. Great summer tea :)
This tea has an heavenly smell. I wanna eat it, wash my hair with it, put it on my clothes, I’m crazy about the smell. And… it tastes what it smells, but in 2 distinct parts. First, a lemon-y flavour. Then, a good blueberry aftertaste. It’s delicious, but I suggest steeping it stronger and longer because – and that’s my negative point – the taste is really too light if you follow the recipe.
