241 Tasting Notes
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.
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 :)
