290 Tasting Notes
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

When I first tried this tea, it seemed a bit cold for something as spring related as this tea, it was actually right during a snowstorm. Needless to say I was not feeling the spring vibe, but I don’t think that is the source of my indifference to this tea.
I’m personally not a fan of this tea. It was way too cinnamon-y for me. Just like last month’s tea of the month was has way too much cinnamon, this one does too. It’ not even like I have anything against cinnamon, it’s just that this tea really overdoes it with the cinnamon.
I wasn’t even expecting it to have cinnamon at all (because of its name). I was expecting a more floral and fruity type tea, but obviously that was not the case. It was only a little bit floral (because there was way too much cinnamon) and not fruity at all.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Flowers
It is quite tangy, but it is a tolerable level of tanginess that it makes the tea unique in that way. Adding some sugar eliminates this tanginess. There is a huge splash of fruity flavor that would make a fantastic iced tea.
That’s all I can really say, about this tea unfortunately…. it does not have a particularly unique flavor profile. What I mean is that I don’t taste a particular berry or a particular fruit. It is just a “big fruity mess” for lack of a better description…
