1610 Tasting Notes
I bought this today! I am 38 weeks and the red raspberry leaf may help start labor and make it quicker blah blah blah. :) This blend tastes nice. I was worried it might taste like herbs – like basil or something strong. This one was nice and mild. There is some mint in this, which is soothing. It goes down smoothly without any astringency. This herbal blend is okay. This isn’t something I would purchase again unless I’m pregnant.
I first tried the blueberry pineapple kona pop blend in the Teavana store near me. I really wanted to have that blend, but the people that worked there told me I had to buy each tea separately at a minimum of 2oz each. I opted for this one instead. I figured I could mix blueberry into this.
Anyhow, I cold brewed this herbal last night. I love all the bits of fruits and flower petals. It is a pretty blend, abeit a bit sticky! I had to shake the tin a bit and scoop to get the bits out. My husband drank a lot of it this morning! I just tried this, and it is good. When I sipped it a little yesterday, it wasn’t that good. I think it needed more time to steep. It is sweet with a little tartness to it. The pineapple and apple flavors are prominent, fresh, and juicy. It tastes like juice. No additives needed. I imagine that kids would love this blend. This is very very good iced/cold-brewed. I cannot imagine this being good at all if I steeped it hot. This is perfect for this hot weather.
Now, I want a pina colada!
