2374 Tasting Notes
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!
Thank you MissB for sharing this tea and Sil for passing it along. You both are awesome! And so is this tea. It has a nice, smooth mint flavor that is beautifully coupled with a buttery creaminess. It perfectly captures the flavor of a butter mint. Plus, the two flavors combined are creating a caramel-like sweetness which is making for quite the treat this afternoon.
I am getting lime and guava. It’s actually quite nice but every now and again the cacao creeps up and makes for a very strange cup. It adds an earthiness that takes away from the brightness of the exotic fruit flavors. Also, the base can be rather vegetal at times which leads to even more competition for the fruity goodness. It’s nice though not something I would stock up on. Still, thank you MissB for sharing and Sil for passing some along.
Oh, also, I laughed when I read one of the ingredients was “a piece of carrot”. Just one piece? That seems very specific.
