209 Tasting Notes
Had this to go today… It’s weird, because I tried some tea last week from the Dominican: pure cocoa husks. And it was delicious with some milk (I enjoy the slightly bitter taste of dark chocolate, so no sugar for me). When this tea was introduced, I knew I had to try it! It’s good – one of the few chocolate-based teas I don’t actually find too sweet. I didn’t really get any blueberry taste with this, but that’s not what I was going for, so it’s not a big miss for me!
I was a little vary of this one due to the lavender (I’m not a huge fan of floral teas), but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the taste (and I do love the fact that it’s organic)! I got a strong strawberry flavour (yay) out of my cup, and the lavender wasn’t as bad as I thought it’d be. I had this hot (it still feels like winter out, le sigh), and it is definitely a relaxing-type tea. I’d love to try it iced, see if I like it as much. Out of the three samples I picked up yesterday (this, Spa Day and Vanilla Rose), I think this is my favourite. I
Finally, a new tea for me to try! :) Quickly grabbed 10g of this to go this afternoon, and made a mug when I got home. A little too heavy on the coconut for me (though that might have been the amount of coconut pieces in my particular cup, I could certainly try and make it without), but the mango flavour does shine through. I do enjoy a good mango tea, and since this is cheaper than Mango Madness, I may be picking up more of this one in the future.
I like this one, I have to say, even if it does remind me a little of orange drink mix. I do enjoy a good, orange-flavoured tea, and this certianly fits the bill – along with the peach and apricot flavours I think I can also pick out. That said, there are other orange teas I like better and that are less expensive, so while I’m glad I tried this one, I won’t be in a rush to get a lot more.
I’m upping my rating on this one because I tried it iced and I liked it much better! Still not my favourite iced flavour (I’m finding lately that I like my black tea blends better hot), but I didn’t find any weird taste like I did before. The candy strawberry flavour works better as an iced tea, I think, so if I ever drink this again in the future, it will definitely be iced.
