So this isn’t out yet, but I got a sample with my recent teaware order, so why not try it?
As you may know already, I’m not big on super sweet artificially flavoured blends, so this already has a strike against it. BUT, I love things that trigger childhood memories, and what better trigger than cotton candy?
The base is green rooibos, something I adore.
Attention, attention, cotton candy lovers, the smell of it is EXACTLY that!
Spot on for the scent, really.
The taste…well, cotton candy being only sugar and colour, this tastes like…sugar and water! With hints of fruitiness, and a little nuttiness from the green rooibos, it’s actually not as bad and artificial as I thought it would be. The green rooibos makes it enjoyable, I could see myself drinking it if I ever get sweet cravings.
This tea doesn’t pretend to be something other than it is, it’s supposed to be fun and carnival reminiscent, and that’s exactly what it is.
I think dessert tea lovers are going to really dig this, not gonna rate it cause it’s not really my thing, but good job on it DAVIDsTEA!
