222 Tasting Notes
Hurrah, new summer teas! Had this one iced to go today, and- mmmmm, delicious! It definitely reminded me of Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait, which is okay, since I LOVE that one. A different flavour profile might be nice, but I won’t say no to another strawberry tea. You can taste the coconut, so it isn’t as tart as SRP. Definitely getting more of this one – it’s yummy on its own, and would, I think, be delightful as a mix for an, ahem, alcoholic beverage :)
Hurrah, another tea with passionfruit! This makes me happy! I don’t really need another green tea on my shelf, but alas, here it is. I don’t think I like this as much as Pink Passionfruit, but it’s still tasty. At least, it is hot. I haven’t iced it yet, which will be the ultimate test of a passionfruit tea. Again, this one is also a lot heavier for a green tea than I expected, which is kind of annoying.
I wanted to like this one better than I did, but I don’t think any other honeydew tea will match my love for Honeydew Maté. Sigh. This was decent, but it’s a really heavy tea, so I barely got anything for my 10g sample, which also knocks down the rating a little. The tea was also really, really light, and I’m thinking I should have added more leaves to my bag. Maybe next time!
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.
