10 Tasting Notes
Huh. Interesting. A friend of mine gave me a couple of bags of this tea to try and it’s okay. I definitely get the chocolate and just a tad of fruitiness and, yes, cake. Definitely red velvet. Not something I’d want to drink every day, but a tasty little experiment nonetheless! Had mine with a bit of milk and honey.
I waited several attempts before reviewing this, and I’m not in love. I think I was expecting it to be more citrusy and refreshing (along the lines of Tealuxe’s Unity Blend that I enjoyed the other day) and no such luck. I’m a tea newbie, but I’d say it’s more savory than I would’ve like. Also, since I prep this tea in my tumbler and drink it throughout the day I have to add: this tastes like swamp water when it’s cold. Definitely try to enjoy it while it’s still warm!
A bright almost orange-flavored chai – no orange in there though! Has a good amount of spice to it. I had it chilled, without milk or sugar. (Tea is how I convince myself to drink enough water every day!) I like that it’s rooibos, so I won’t oversteep it and make it bitter.
Thanks to Rachel for recommending I try a rooibos-based chai!
Sickeningly sweet. I enjoy the spicy and sweet notes of Yogi Detox, and was hoping that this herbal tea would be a nice alternative. Unfortunately, I think they went overboard with the Stevia Leaf. I feel like it coats my mouth with each sip. That being said, I am drinking it cold, so it might be more palatable when hot.
UPDATE: Tried it hot. Much more tolerable. Improved my score.
Ooh, I remember trying this in April! I was visiting a friend and grabbed a bottle of this to go with my deli sandwich. I really liked it. I’ve had a few bottle kombucha drinks and this one didn’t disappoint: fizzy, sweet, but with a bite to it. It feels like a “grown up” drink to me. It’s not super sweet juice or soda, or a beer (not up my alley) – just light, tasty and refreshing.
