1885 Tasting Notes
Normally I have a hard time finishing bottled tea, I don’t find it that enjoyable, but I didn’t have that issue with this bottle. It was sweet, without making my teeth hurt and the watermelon-mint flavor wasn’t overwhelming. I could taste the red rooibos underneath the flavoring, a hint of mint, and a fairly believable watermelon flavor. All of the ingredients had a nice balance, although I would have preferred something much less sweet. The level of sweetness comes down to my personal preferences, I don’t typically sweeten my tea. At least in this case the extra sugar covers up some of the flavor from the citric acid. I’ll take extra sweet over sour any day of the week. Overall this was a really nice bottled tea and I look forward to trying some of the other flavors once Hy-Vee has them back in stock.
