235 Tasting Notes
This one kind of reminds me of Grape Expectations – must be the fruit flavour, I guess. I do like this, just not as much as the grape, haha. And I am not getting as much jasmine as I thought there would be, which is also kind of a let down. Maybe I will try this one again later iced, to see if I change my rating.
I don’t give out 100 ratings very often, and I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve ever given one to a maté. I LOVE this tea. I’ve had it both hot and iced and it is freaking delicious . I’ve got a tin at home and at work, and my only downfall will be forgetting that this is a stimulant and drinking it at night, therefore causing me not to sleep, haha. DT, NEVER discontinue this one!
I’m actually surprised at how much how I liked this – I made it hot (not usually my first go-to when trying fruit-heavy teas), and I’m definitely wary of cherries. But I think the cherry flavour is more subtle than I was thinking, and I do love teas with orange. And, again, I appreciate this one being organic. I wish more of the fruit teas had this designation. Looking forward to trying this iced, as well.
I was a little wary on trying this one, as I don’t like the dessert teas as much as the rest, and banana isn’t my flavour of choice, either. As predicted, this was sweet – not as sickly as I was expecting, which was a good thing. That said, while I finished off my mug (I originally brewed it hot, then decided I’d like it better iced), and there’s a little more in the sample I have, I don’t think I’ll be buying any more of this. I can see the tea’s appeal, but it’s just not for me.
I love the look of this tea! I almost didn’t want to steep it, haha. I’m not a huge fan of straight whites, but I thought I’d give this one a go just to try it, and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised! The employee at DT who served me said this tastes even better re-steeped, so I’ll have to give that a whirl later, as well.
