I have three of these sample packets from some old Teavana orders, so I figured I’d fire up the Zojirushi and give ’em a spin while I get some writing done.
One of the other tasting notes for this tea describes it as “warm fruit punch”, which is quite apt. I take sugar in my tea, but this wasn’t overly sweet even with the additional rock sugar added to the sample. Actually, it was very bitter (I’m guessing it’s because of the orange rinds in the mix).
The sample is aromatic though with strong notes of citrus and fruit. I know there’s tea in it, but you certainly don’t taste it. I can imagine it would taste great iced with sugar to taste. The sample alone was just OK for me.
Maybe that’s why they were giving it away.
