The name of the tea sounds wonderful, but I’ll admit that I was a bit hesitant trying this one. I keep trying, but I don’t seem to be much of a fan of fruity or floral teas.
The dry base has a really nice, citrusy smell. Once brewed, I get a bit more of the grassy guayusa smell, and less citrus.
I first tasted it straight, and it’s pretty good. A light tangerine taste with a grassy/earthy undertone to it. It doesn’t really taste creamy to me, but that’s ok.
When I added a bit of cane sugar (as is suggested), the citrus flavour became more apparent, and the grassy taste was reduced. Very good. I’m not a huge fan of adding anything to my drinks, though, so I’m glad I can drink this one straight if I want to.
This is one “fruity” tea that I like.
