184 Tasting Notes
I’m not sure this is anything special. I can taste the malty, and in the store (I got this in San Francisco, which was quite a fun trip for me!) I could smell the chocolate better than I can now. I have other breakfast teas I like better.
I don’t know what this tea wants to do…it just tastes jumbled to me. Not anything special.
Not totally strawberry…has a mouthfeel like marshmallow root was in it. I’m still fairly undecided on this…I mean, I don’t dis-like the tea, but I’m not sure what it’s doing.
I read the other review of this tea…it is like a strawberry banana, but not the banana taste…the banana feel.
The dry leaf, as I opened the package, smelled very strong. Now, I’m not a drinker, but the picture on the package makes me think of some sort of fruity drink, and I can definitely smell the orange, cherry, and something…that makes me think of a fruity alcoholic drink.
The tea, of course, is not as strong. I’m not sure what size this mug really is, so I put in more leaf than I normally would have. Also, the shape of the tea, it just didn’t seem to scoop out very well in my spoon, and I wanted to make sure I have enough.
I do like the tea. I wouldn’t say it was a Tequila Sunrise as brewed, but it’s not unpleasant. Not sure anything really POPS out at me, but more blended and subtle than the dry scent.
