drank Tangerine Dream (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
1212 tasting notes

This is okay, as usual it’s one of those teas where you can tell it’s on the brink of going bitter, yet you can hardly taste the tea itself.

I steeped it for two minutes and then poured it over ice. It has a decent tangerine flavor; it tastes rather like a legitimate tangerine, although I cannot remember the last time I had one. I was expecting it to be kind of bitter because it smells just like peels before it steeps, but I guess the stevia helps that out.

Like I said, it could really use a boost in the actual green tea department. I’m not sure I like the almost genmaicha-like toastiness with a tangerine flavor. In fact, I think that might be why I think it tastes almost like it would go bitter if it steeped 15 seconds more. I’d like a sweeter green base to boost a juicy flavor out of the citrus, since if I eat orange citrus fruits, it’s because I want that aspect of it!

Not bad though, thanks for sending me some to try, Kittenna!
