I need to learn to buy tea based on its ingredient list rather than the front of the box… this tea’s name and the blurb on the front make it sound like it’s a matcha (or at least a generic green tea that includes matcha) with orange flavoring, when in fact it’s more of a green/herbs/flavors blend with a hint of matcha near the end of the ingredient list. At least it was only a few dollars.
It smells… weird. Not much like tea, I think it’s the combination of licorice and chamomile that contribute the most to the scent, making it reminiscent of those herbal blends that are sold as something to drink when you’re sick. Only weirder, I’m not sure how else to describe it because it’s not entirely like any other tea I’ve had before. It tastes more or less like it smells, only way sweeter than I’m used to — must be the stevia! I wish this wasn’t pre-sweetened, I don’t think the flavor combo works with this high level of sweetness.
That said, I find this tea pretty drinkable, I suppose the strangeness gives it an unexpected charm. I wouldn’t buy it again or recommend it, but I’ll finish it.
(And no, it doesn’t taste like matcha.)
do not over steep. it’s a good tea , has a nice kick to it. needs a smidge or a pinch of sugar and it’s like drinking spicy hot cocoa
This tea has an exotic combination of ingredients. When I first opened the foiled package the aroma was delightful. The cocoa dominated and yet there was a spirited tangy smell accompanying it.
I poured the boiled water over the tea bag and let it steep 4 min. as suggested on the box. Sadly, I was disappointed
The first sip told me this tea was not up to the task assigned to it on the box. I tasted watered down. The cocoa was barely there, almost as if a cocoa leaf was waved over the hot water. The pepper barely lingered in the background and the other flower ingredients didn’t make it on stage.
Maybe it’s me and maybe I expected too much, but this tea won’t make it into my cupboard.
