3 Tasting Notes
I tried this in the store using a $1 cup coupon. It was much better than a taste from one of their sample size cups. Well about the tea. Awesome. I had a iced latte and it was terrific. I saw how much they put in the cup and was amazed at how much they put in. They said to double the amounts of tea and rock sugar but they seemed to put a lot more in than they said. I was able to easily duplicated it a home. For a 16 oz. it needed 6 tsp. and 3 tsp. of rock sugar. It only needed a little milk (soy in my case). Over ice! Yummy and cooool!
I haven’t had it hot but I really enjoyed my iced latte.
Another great smelling Teavana tea. Luckily, it’s also a tasty tea! Nice crisp fruit flavor. When I read about some people eating the little bits after brewing and I thought they were nuts. However, I couldn’t help but nibble and oh, my goodness, it’s fantastic. The surprise ingredient is… wait for it…. carrot slices! You don’t really taste them but it is a surprise to see them in your tea. The tea is good hot and iced with a little rock sugar.
The scent is awesome! Since the scent is a primary sense used in enjoying teas this is a delightful one. It brews to a lovely pink and I’ve been able to steep it several times from the same leaves.The taste is somewhat overwhelmed by the rose blossoms which bring a strong rose hip taste. I do add the German rock sugar because of the tartness of the rose blossoms. The plum and almonds are great. I enjoy fruity teas as well as other types so this tea is a perfect fit for me. Others have mentioned this is a holiday drink (?) but I bought this in the spring and feel that it is very good this time of the year.It has a certain lightness/brightness that feels very “sunshiny” :) As a cold brewed ice tea it is great. The rose hip flavor is reduced which allows the other flavors to come through. I cold steeped it for 4 hours.
