2368 Tasting Notes
I had this a couple nights back as my nightly latte and though it was good, it wasn’t as good as I remembered. There was a nice chocolate raspberry flavor to it but there was also a large dose of honeybush as well. I swear that I go through phases where honeybush and rooibos really bother me and phases where they don’t. Unfortunately right now, I’m put off by the bases which makes for certain teas to be less enjoyable. Still, “less enjoyable” doesn’t mean bad and this still made for a nice evening treat so thank you Sil for passing this along :)
When I smelled this, I worried that the base might be overbearingly vegetal. Luckily that wasn’t the case. This was a light and fruity tea combining lovely cantaloupe flavor with a bit of peach brightness. I could see this being pleasant in the warmer months when do many black teas just seem too dense. All in all, it is one of the better greens I have tried and I am grateful to MissB and Sil for the chance to do so!
The is a nice enough tea to drink. It’s a little sweet from the goji and a little vegetal from the base (though not in an offensive way) but at the end of the day it’s not really making a huge impact. Once I finish this cup, I’ll probably forget about this tea as it’s just nothing special. Still it is pleasant to try and I am grateful to MissB and Sil for making that happen!
