68 Tasting Notes
I tried the tea 2 times and, unfortunately,I don’t find it really tasty. I taste the white tea well, but that’s about it. Maybe I should put more tea in my teaball? I was expecting a fruity tea and it’s not what I’m getting. What do you guys do for it to be tasty??? I’m still giving an okay note (60), because the it is not bad, but it’s really not what it announces. In my case, at least…
I will try again with more tea in the teaball and update the note.
8 months later we are. I find myself looking at my tea collection to see which ones I’m not gonna keep. My mother loves tea, but she doesn’t mind about the fruity taste. As long as it tastes tea. In my case, I don’t really like the taste of tea alone. I prefer when it’s flavored. So when I buy a tea and I find a lack of fruit, flower, chocolate (or whatever kind it is) flavor, I give it to my mother.
Anyway, back to the story. So I see this tea in my collection and I think about why I didn’t like it at first. I was expecting a lot of fruit flavor and I was disappointed. Having lowered my expectations a lot, I decide to try this tea with, in mind, the idea that I won’t like it more than before. THE-DISCOVERY. It’s good! I caught myself driking it again and again. Since I wasn’t expecting all that fruity flavor anymore, I wasn’t disappointed. The fruits are there, but just slightly. That’s okay for me now. I will boost the note because I think it deserves it. In fact, I’m giving it a 90.
I just tried this mate for the first time and I tried it iced (double recipe, then pour on ice in a stainless bottle and shake: instant iced tea). I wanted to add honey, but I was in a hurry so I didn’t. Not surprisingly, this mate tastes what it announces: raspberry and lemon… raspberry lemonade! True, the lemon taste is a bit artificial, but it adds a little pep to it. And the raspberry taste is very good. It’s like a good cocktail, without the alchool and all the sugar. I definitely buy this.
Ooooh, I must say this blend is something! They send it free when you order via website, so I got 1 oz of it and I wish I’ve gotten more! I find it delicious and very fruity. The rock sugar adds something, even if I’m not the add-sugar-in-my-tea person. Maybe I would’ve taken a bit less of the rock sugar in it, but it’s still very good. I added a bit more tea in my tea ball than the suggested recipe and it was perfect.
For honeydew melon lovers. To me, this tea tastes lemon and it’s sour side at the start,then something I’m not sure about, then honeydew melon at the end. I like honeydew, so I like this tea. I never ate goji berries, so maybe the taste I’m not sure about is actually the goji?! It’s the first time I drink this tea today, so I can only tell about its taste when it’s hot. I should – and absolutely will – try it cold.
At first, you see a creamy pink tea with little white pearls floating on top of it. Then, you taste it and – oooh – what an interesting taste! I love it :) It’s sour, because of the rhubarb, and sweet. It’s always good to have a cup of it, anywhere, anytime! Drink it hot and let it steep for many minutes. I may try it cold and update the note sometime :)
I bought this tea when it came out and I loved it at first! Then I wanted more and they were always out of stock. Fortunately, I found some at a David’s shop near my house. Now, everytime I’ having this tea, I’m wondering why I wanted it so badly. It’s good, I still drink it, but honestly, I’m still searching for the orange and chocolate tastes. It doesn’t taste what it smells. But you can also don’t care about this fact and just enjoy the tea as it is.
Wow this tea is very juicy and tasty. I bought it because I’ve decided I didn’t have enough fruit teas in my collection – they are so good in the morning! Well this one, I can’t find anything bad to say about, except: don’t steep it twice, it doesn’t work. For those who hesitate between a tea or a glass of juice in the morning, you will be served with Bamboozled because it’ll be like you have both in a cup :)
