658 Tasting Notes
I like bananas, but cannot stand them in any form other than freshly peeled and by themselves. In juices or smoothies they make me gag so, needless to say, this didn’t appeal to me. But I got in on the $1 iced tea refill mug deal a few days ago and my two options for free tea were this or Read My Lips. I’m not into Read My Lips either, and thought since this is from a temporary collection I should give it a try.
It was refreshing, and the rooibos in this was actually nice. The banana wasn’t too bad, but I think this was largely because of the way the tea gets really diluted after they steep it and then pour it over ice. That was okay by me, this time. Anyway, not a total failure but not one I would buy or probably choose to drink again. I think if you were someone who loved everything banana (are there people like that?), this would be delicious because everything else tasted good.
Really interesting. I don’t have much experience with yellow teas, so I don’t have much to compare with. I’m getting mostly sweet, light, green tea with a bit of toastiness like the description mentions.
Yum. Rich, deep, malty, sweet. Also, the leaves were so fluffy and soft! I would like a bed made of tea buds, please.
Oh, yum. So fresh and re-freshing! This is incredibly light; it looks almost just like water in my cup. It’s gentle and sweet, with a lightly floral aftertaste.
I revisited this tea after a while apart, and absence did make the heart grow fonder. So tasty.
