176 Tasting Notes
GOOD GOD this tea is strong! The tart citrus flavor can be too much for me. I’m generally not a huge ice tea fan, but I think this one would be much better iced with lemonade as a few others have mentioned. When preparing it hot I literally only steep it for 1-2 minutes (which is weird for me considering I usually steep my tea for the whole time I drink it lol), which keeps it from being too overpowering. I do love the rose hips and it’s generally pleasantly flavorful if I don’t overdo it, but wow YEAH THE FIRST CUP KINDA KNOCKED ME OUTTA MY CHAIR.
I bought both this tea and the Lipton Purple Açai & Blueberry Superfruit at the same time and favor this tea over the other one! The fruity flavor is more prominent and refreshing, not too tart and not too sweet. Apparently the tea is becoming difficult to find, though, so that’s a bit of a bummer since it was my favorite Lipton Superfruit. APPARENTLY MY WAL-MART IS STILL CARRYING IT THOUGH…
I’m pretty neutral on this tea. I drink it on occasion at work because it’s free; I love pomegranate, raspberry and green teas but somehow this falls a little flat? IDK. I think it might be the chamomile, honestly; kinda throws off the sweet fruity taste and leaves you with a strange… flowery tart-ness? I DUNNO, it’s not a BAD tea, but not a favorite.
