Had this one yesterday to go from Blenz while meeting up with a friend to study at the library. I was actually delightfully surprised with this tea. I never knew Blenz had such a unique variety of teas to choose from! Much better than Starbucks’ options, that’s for sure.

The aroma was actually very citrusy, and since I was only told this tea was “dragonwell”, I wasn’t expecting such a zingy, fresh aroma. It was quite nice, though. The flavour was also very delightful. While hot, the citrus did not come through in the tea. It was more creamy and smooth, a solid and quality green tea base. As it cooled down, the zesty citrus also appeared in the flavour, and tasted just like it smelled earlier. I really liked it, and wanted to go back to buy some for home, but the sales associate didn’t really know what he was doing and I had to catch a bus, so I left it for another time.

I will be revisiting this tea!

drank Gingerbread Tea by Blenz Coffee

I really like this tea, surprisingly so. It’s a black with some sort of “gingerbread spice” in it. No idea what it is, but I can see how it would be so divine as a latte. I’ve had it the past few times I’ve visited the Blenz by my house. As long as I take the teabag out after a few minutes… really lovely. A bit better with some sweetener.

drank Mango Rooibos by Blenz Coffee

Writing in a coffee shop, and this seemed like the best bet after downing a large cup of iced mate just prior. Struggled to find anything at all about this online (where does it come from? is it a proprietary blend?) and said – the hell with it, I’m posting it anyway. The pic is my steeped cup, because it’s a pet peeve of mine to have zero picture for any teas on here.

I can smell the mango wafting from the cup as soon as the barista handed it to me, and I’m excited to taste it. Unfortunately, the mango is uber-subtle, and while it does make sweetener unnecessary, it’s still a bit drying and too faint for my liking. The rooibos is nutty and full, and I’m looking forward to steeping this again and seeing how it fares.

Sweeter than the green tea I’m used to (whatever they serve at my favourite sushi place.) Clearly I need to broaden my tea horizons.
