248 Tasting Notes
Received this from a TTB. I’m liking it quite a bit more then I thought I would. In fact, the longer I let it steep the better it is. Maybe it’s just because all the other flavors come out more to settle the hibiscus. Speaking of hibiscus, when I first steeped the tea it was super strong
_. But the flavors have now melded into a wild and sour mix. I like! It could also be that I kinda accidentally dumped a table spoon full into the brewer that is bringing out such an intense flavor…
Flavors: Apple, Fruit Punch, Hibiscus
After having the wild colored guava in Hawai’i I had to try this. It would be kinda cool if that pink color would stay so you could see it in the dry pieces. The water is a lovely royal red. My first sip in the first 4 mins was better then the second at 7ish mins. I fear this tea is somewhat ruined by tye hibiscus. I’m going to try to dig it out for the next cup. Minus the hibiscus it’s a lovely tea. I knew I’d like it the moment i opened the bag and smelled guava.
On a side note, I am drinking this while enjoying a Godiva cake truffle chocolate flight. So nummy.
Steeping tea while cooking dinner usually isn’t a good idea for me because I tend to forget about the tea. This time I went out to my garden and when I came back I looked at it and was like… well shoot. BUT! It wasn’t ruined! Huzzah. Yay for teas that get sweeter as they steep. (Like Indigo Tea Co’s Red Hot Cinnamon). I actually had to steep it for a couple minutes after that because I thought it was too light. IT’s good hot and cold. Not my favorite chocolate tea I will admit but it is still quite good.
Went into mu first David’s Tea store the other day! What a delight. We need some stores in MN!! I bought this tea in what was kinda like a clearance section I believe. The lady at the front told me that they are going to discontinue this tea, which is too bad because it’s quite good. Not many teas use blueberries and out of the ones I’ve had none of them could get such a luscious flavor like this! Good hot but I am also really enjoying it cold as well.
