1774 Tasting Notes
I tried it hot and it was not very good at all, and then I tried it iced (double-strength & poured over ice) and it was REALLY GOOD.
It’s not quite coconut ice cream like the description promises, but it’s not far from that. There’s something in the mouthfeel that makes it have more body than your usual tea. It’s naturally a little sweet, and tastes strongly of coconut.
Price of this vs. price of coconut water = this tea wins.
I approve. I like mate blends and can always go for more. And lemonade too!
It’s a little odd hot because the lemon makes me think of Neo Citron, but that’s not the tea’s fault I have this association.
Cold, it is nice and refreshing, and hopefully it’ll give me the motivation to get moving. Probably not though. It’s too hot this weekend and I’ve got new 3DS games to play and, I’m lazy.
Would I buy more? Possibly, especially since I can’t get flavoured mate from Butiki anymore. Oh, and I CAN taste the berries, but it seems nicely balanced and doesn’t take away from the lemon.
Thank you Curious Tea for giving me a sample for review!
I have to say that I am amazed with the presentation of this box. It’s beautifully wrapped, and the labels on the packaging are elegant and informative. Everything I need to know is right there.
I was very excited to brew this cup because I haven’t had darjeeling in a while, and this was supposed to be top quality. It’s light and fruity, with a little bit of a sharp tang that isn’t quite astringent. It’s fruity and I’m definitely getting peach notes. It’s refreshing. Even as it cools it doesn’t cross that line over into bitterness which is great; I’ve had a few darjeelings that went bad that way\.
Thank you for the sample!
