166 Tasting Notes
This is MUCH better than the other Yogi Green tea I had the other day. I was intrigued by the Kombucha since originally I thought you could only get it in bottled form. The package said to steep the bag for 3 minutes, but I forgot about it and steeped it for longer. Not too bad and not as bitter as I thought it would be. The green tea is a little more prominent here, as is the lemongrass and a little bit of the mint.
My original experience with Kombucha was the bottled stuff that tastes a LOT like vinegar and was pretty bad to drink. Thankfully, this is a lot better.
Had this at Jason’s Deli. I was a little disappointed at first to learn that the first ingredient was not green tea, it’s lemongrass. And the third ingredient – which is really the most predominant – is licorice root. I’ve concluded I’m really not a fan of it. It almost tastes artificially sweet without it. I can’t taste any green tea, which is a shame because this was all they had for green tea at the restaurant. If you like medicinal teas and don’t care for green tea, but want to drink something that has green tea in it, this might be right up your alley. It’s really a shame, too, since I don’t mind herbals mixed with greens.
Not bad as far as herbals go. Had this on a whim in a Mt. Dora tea shop to avoid caffeine. I was worried the hibiscus – the primary ingredient – would be too tart and overpowering. At first, it was, but throwing a packet of raw sugar really helped being out the flavors, such as the berries. I also tried this ice without the sugar, and I think it’s better iced. Overall, not bad, and there’s an impressive list of fruit in these teas.
