4 Tasting Notes
I love this tea, it’s my favorite of the 6-7 brands I’ve tried. It’s strong but well-balanced, and has a lot of floral bergamot aroma and flavor without being cloying or bitter (and I drink it straight, without added sugar or milk). The base tea has a nice flavor, not smoky or earthy. Really good.
Flavors: Astringent, Bergamot, Citrus, Earl Grey, Floral
I so, so want to love this tea. I do love the fragrance and color, I just can’t get behind the taste when I steep it as hot tea. It’s just too tart for me. Citric acid is the third ingredient- WHY?! The hibiscus and rose hips are tart already, so why add more acid? That said, I can drink it iced, with added sugar. It’s good that way. But I prefer not to add more sugar to my diet, and I like hot tea. It’s been a disappointing experience with a tea I’ve tried to like for fifteen years.
I really like this tea. It’s light and refreshing, and I love the hint of lime. It’s sweet by itself, without being cloying, and I don’t add anything to it. I taste the mint and lime most of all, with a smooth finish of cucumber. It’s subtle, but all the flavors are definitely there. Yum!
