74 Tasting Notes
This tea is okay… The dry leaf is nice, though the cut-off rosebuds remind me of Morticia Addams cutting off the roses in the Addams Family movie. The taste is another thing. It definitely tastes tropical… More of an upscale tropical-type feeling though, not the normal “tropical punch” flavor. The sweet, red cold medicine flavor of the rooibos comes through, and its fine, but probably not a blend I’d buy again. I’ll save it for when I’m sick and can appreciate it.
This tea is just an issue for me…
First time I had it, this tea was weak… It made me sad, because I wanted to love it, but couldn’t. The second time, I added a bit of extra tea… Was no longer weak, but definitely wasn’t good, either. The tea smells like liquid medicine, but in a bad way (and I usually like that smell). The brew tastes slightly of hibiscus, though there is none.
This tea is the ultimate comfort food to me… Quite artificial, yes, but I love it anyway. This is not as spicy as a loose chai, especially for those of us who are used to drinking chai teas… A bit of spices in the background, but nothing that stands out. This is more like a dessert than a true tea… Like creme brulee pudding or something. I enjoy it very much!
The scent of the tea leaves is exactly what the name implies… Very sweet lime and pineapple, and quite impressive! I had high hopes. However, the brewed scent worried me a bit… It smelled almost like Lime Perrier… that very fizzy, almost salty, unsweetened carbonated water. So its really a toss-up of which way this tea will go!
Sadly, it went the Perrier route, and a tea that tastes carbonated with no bubbles is just strange. I might have to tea swap this.
Raised my rating from an 81 (hot) to an almost perfect score! This is one of the best iced teas I’ve ever tasted. I will absolutely buy this again. It tastes so much like Welch’s white grape juice, and that is such a comforting flavor to me that I can’t imagine ever letting myself run out of this blend.
This tea just wasn’t very good… From the bag, it smelled amazing… like a peaches and cream, almost. The smell made me very excited to taste this tea! It smelled just as good brewed, and I could definitely enjoy a candle that smelled like this tea. Sadly, the tea tasted almost like a candle! The peach flavor was nice, like a light cling peach. But there was a terrible, waxy aftertaste that made it difficult to even finish the cup – I think I’ll be passing this tea onto a friend (or enemy) because I can’t ever see myself drinking this again on purpose.
First off, my tea doesn’t look much like the picture… there seem to be way fewer currants in my tea than are in the picture. However, I don’t think it affects the taste of the tea at all. It really does taste like white grape! Sadly, there’s no tartness to the flavor, like there would be in a white grape juice. But this tea is also something I never expected it to be… Its almost comforting, and I never expected that from a grape flavored tea. Not one of my favorites, but I’ll probably buy it again, when looking for a change.
