I had incredibly high hopes for this tea the second I opened the bag. The “tea” mix has a very strong, sweet fruity smell, like a sugared wine. It left me truly excited at the prospect of tasting this tea! The strong scent left me surprised at how light the brew was, and hoping that it tasted more like it smelled, less like it looked.

Hot, this tea just didn’t meet my expectations – it tastes weak, even after a long steep at the recommended temperature, time, and “tea” amount. It has the flavor of an extremely watered down, warm juice (which, I suppose, is what it is).

I was disappointed, thinking I’d just down this because I paid for it and thinking of people to pawn it off on, but by then the tea had started to cool, and it was like a whole new drink. The tart/sweet flavor really shone through, getting stronger the longer I let it chill.

Sadly, while I enjoyed the flavor after a while, I don’t drink much iced tea, so this one probably won’t be re-ordered.
