I was really sad when this tea did not return in this years spring collection because it was my favorite! But then shortly after, it shows up as tea of the month, which is even better!
This year however, they added lemongrass to it. I liked it the way it was in the first place, but with the lemongrass added, it’s not all that different. So as I mentioned in my previous review, this tea has a lovely coconut flavor that is strong and prominent. Then it is soothed by the lovely, smooth oolong leaves, and the balance of the two flavors is perfect.
The only thing is that the oolong leaves are extremely fragile and if you steep t too long or if the water is too hot, it becomes very astringent and unpleasurable.
The back tea works as a great base for the tea because without this strong, neutral base, this tea has the potential to go out of control in a bad way. But thankfully, that is not the case. The tea has a lovely cucumber-melon flavor! usually I see this combination is lotion and shower gel, but here it is in a tea! It is such a lovely combination too, and it is perfectly balanced. Recommend 100%
Blue Lagoon is a tea that I had no idea what it would tasted like before I tried it. The aroma doesn’t give away much of the beautiful flavors hidden inside. once you take that first sip, it’s like a huge burst of flavors igniting your taste buds. The blueberry is the most prominent flavor in the tea. Then you can taste other exotic fruits, but nothing specific. Finally, there is an-ever-so-slight floral note to balance out the crazy fruitiness of the tea.
Superfruit Unity is a tea that I use mostly to blend with less-flavorful teas or other fruity green teas.
The reason is this: it’s just so damn fruity that it needs to be CALMED DOWN a lot in order to be tolerable. Or it can just be diluted with water if you don’t want to blend it! (or just use less tea leaves haha) But my point is just that I only drank it without blending a few times just because it is hard to handle, and I could never get the right balance; it was always too concentrated.
Blending it with other teas calms down the intense fruits, and it’s great!
It does not really live up to its name but it’s a good effort. It tastes very much like plain black tea with a hint of something else a creamy element, but nothing like salted caramel.
It is also really astringent, which is sort of unpleasant. Sorry to disappoint you if you thought this would actually taste like salted caramel. Just a somewhat failed attempt
