Recent Tasting Notes
Just tried this tea out tonight after smelling it in the store and loving it. I’m a big fan of blueberries in the summer or when they are in season so this was must.
I was worried as I am with a lot of berry teas that it might turn medicinal tasting (like Robotusin) but this didn’t do that at all. It was lovely and very much a true blueberry. The aftertaste really left the jam flavour. I have yet to try this cold but I think it would be lovely!
(Also I have not tried it with milk but blueberries and milk with sugar is one of my favourite treats so it might be really excellent!)
We are starting to get some hot weather here on the west coast which seems like a good excuse to make some iced tea… I picked this one up at DavidsTea because it smelled so good! Taking a closer look at the tea – in addition to the white tea leaves and the headlining mango, there is definitely a noticeable amount of orange (peel and “slices”) and pineapple. I steeped this tea for six minutes and, while it was cooling, added about two teaspoons of sugar, then poured over ice. The smell of the tea (while hot) instantly reminded me of hot apple cider and, to a lesser extent, fuzzy peaches. The taste (once cool) was that of pineapple and oranges… not much mango. That said, the tea was good, on par with many of the other iced teas that I have had this summer. I would’t have a problem drinking this tea again and it was quite refreshing on a hot evening.
I received a single serving sample of this with my last order from DAVIDsTea, and was excited to try it out since it wasn’t something that I was willing to risk order a whole package of. As stated in other comments, it looks like an innocent tea, until you let it steep. The color of it is… well, interesting, but the taste is great. Not too overpowering and not at all as disgusting as one might think. Definitely going to add a pack to my next order, I’d love to try it over ice, I have a feeling it would make a good (but funky) iced tea.
