Wow! Straight out of the bag this smells like fizzy lime soda. Not the Sprite sort of generic we’re-calling-it-lemon-lime-so-pretend-that’s-what-it-tastes-like, an actual lime scent. A flashback to lime-flavored Eno if there ever was such a thing. I brewed it up and it smells exactly the same. Flavor-wise this is heavy on the lime and it’s obviously not bubbly like soda nor does it have the sweetness of flat soda. I taste pineapple in the tea, which I didn’t smell at all before, and something that I think is the marshmallow. I don’t taste lime very much either, which is slightly disappointing. The green tea exists, I see it in my steeper, but I don’t taste it at all – this tea is quite baseless, and I wouldn’t have batted an eye if told it was a fruit tea or a white. Ah well. 10 points for smell, maybe 6 points for actual flavor. Looking forward to trying this iced.

Bio

I grew up drinking masala chai and fell into the tea world a couple years ago. Black teas are probably my favorite, with Darjeeling and Earl Grey on the top of the list. Recently green teas and oolongs have been growing on me, and anything with mint or a citrus flavor is good in my book.
