235 Tasting Notes
While I don’t like this one as much as my beloved Pineapple Oolong (rest in peace), this one was still delicious as an iced blend. Not sure how I’d like it hot (though I’m sure I’ll eventually try it, it is a flavoured green, after all), but this will definitely be in the iced tea rotation this summer.
This was a pleasant surprise! I’m not a huge lover of the coconut teas from DT (Coconut Oolong being the exception), but I had this iced today and it was pretty good! I think, if I ever have it again, to add some milk – this would be delicious as an iced latte! Also, I have to give it props for being organic!
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.
