2 Tasting Notes

A very unique flavour. I was a bit thrown by the ingredient list, but it smelt good enough in store that I bought a few grams to try myself.
The blueberry is strong when you brew it, not much cranberry, and there’s a hint of something tangy, too. Maybe it’s my mind playing tricks on me, but I swear I can taste the mustard seed.
Overall I’m glad I tried it, but I won’t be refilling my bag when it’s empty.

This tea was really surprising.

I did a terrible job of brewing it. I put in closer to 2 tsp of the tea, and mindlessly left it sitting for 10 minutes, instead of the 6 I was aiming for. I was worried I was going to have a bitter, undrinkable mess.
But it was good. Really good. Despite the fact that the bag smells strong, the taste was pretty light, comparatively. A delicious berry flavour, noticeable dragonfruit, and only a hint of tartness. But I guess that’s because it’s (mercifully) hibiscus-free.
Pink Dragonfruit is probably going to become one of my go-to berry teas.

Issues: Next time I brew it, I’ll still probably use the same amount of tea; I’ll just be sure to keep an eye on the timer. This bag isn’t very economical. Lots of tea for a light (but good!) taste. Also, if we’re getting into semantics, this is really more of an infusion than an actual tea. I kept finding massive chunks of the dried fruit!
