When I walked in to Teavana yesterday one of the associates was trying this with Youthberry which might be a good way to go.
By itself, it’s too weird. It’s so subtle and just straight up SWEET. It’s kind of like drinking a rice krispies treat.
The tea is mostly made up of apple pieces and other fruit and I’m not sure really what is supposed to be macaron about this. but I figured I would mix it with some other floral/fruity teas to be sort of like the Dammann Freres macaron teas.
So next I tried it with that strawberry champagne rose or whatever they’re calling it now, which was slightly better. It really had the color of rose, but it was still too light and too sweet. I did a 50/50 mix so maybe I’ll go heavier on the other tea next time.
It’s certainly interesting, maybe it’s better cold, given its ingredients? I’m not much of a fan of fruit teas like this hot.
