78 Tasting Notes
This tea, I love this tea. I don’t quite understand all the hate going around for this tea, but that’s okay. Whenever I need something light and fruity, or something to mix with my other teas this is one my first options. I also enjoy mixing it with superfruit unity; FRUIT ON FRUIT ON FRUIT. Delish.
I will say that steeping it for the recommended 2 minutes isn’t enough for me at all. I steep it between 4-5 minutes, and sometimes add some honey.
The first tea I actually ever had was when I visited a friend in Ireland. I think we drank at least 4 cups of breakfast tea everyday. While this isn’t the exact brand, it is very reminiscent in taste. I will say though, I like mine steeped VERY LIGHT, I’ll dunk the bag in there about 5 times or let it sit for no longer than a minute. I also add 1/2 tsp of sugar and milk. Malty is a perfect word to describe it I think. Just a great black tea.
I got this tea for work, and it was pretty good. I went so far to bring some home so I could have it there as well. There are definitely a lot of different berry flavors going on which kind of threw me off, despite the name. I think I was expecting to me almost more blueberry-esque only to get a lot of tart.
I wouldn’t get it again, but I did enjoy it while I had it.
I got this tea mostly as a mixer, but have had it on it’s own a couple times and really just don’t care for it. I guess I just don’t like my tea to be mainly citrus. The first time I had it plain, I almost felt like I was drinking hot orange juice, so the next time I had it I tried it iced, and still just didn’t really care for it. Now I don’t even like it mixed with other stuff. Luckily I only bought 1oz. Lesson learned.
I bought this because the thought of the pomegranate and raspberry sounded like it could be really delicious. For me this tea was sadly, very underwhelming. It’s a lot less fruity than the fruity teas I’m used to drinking, only giving me a hint of fruitiness. I’m not experienced enough with my tea drinking to pick out the exact flavors I’m getting from this, but a lot of the others claim it tastes like chamomile, so that must be it. Bleh.
EDIT: I tried adding some sugar to it. The taste didn’t change, just tastes like the tea + sugar.
