Thanks to Alphakitty for a sample of this.
This is a really interesting tea! I’m not too familiar with Tamarind (I’ve only had it in soda form a couple times), so I don’t know how closely the taste compares. There definitely is a little bit of astringency and “mouth feel”.
I thought it was good unsweetened, but decided to add some sugar (gasp!) per the suggestion of other reviewers. It definitely brings out the flavor and makes it taste more like a tamarind soda.
I’m going to leave a rating off because this tea is so unique and I’m not quite sure how to properly rate it.
