291 Tasting Notes
They only had 12g left of this in the store (which I made my mom travel out of our way an extra 2 hours). I steeped this this morning & was suprised by the super light colour of it.
It was a little weak flavour wise, however I could definetly taste the mango/pineapple flavour. And although near the end of my mug it wasn’t very cold, as it went down my throat it felt like I was drinking it ice cold.
I had to buy this, it came in a cutesy (root) beer bottle. How could anyone pass it up. Not to mention it smells exactly like root beer, in both the dry notes & as it steeps.
I had originally made some this morning for my daughter (who is avid about trying teas, although rarely likes them), sipping this slightly cooled it was quite bitter & I knew she wouldn’t like it. I advised her to wait until it got colder (over ice), even then she didn’t like it. She found it to only have a slight root beer taste, which I agree on, I also got a hint of vanilla. It was good but could have been more root beer tasting (I always add extra leaves when steeping). I’m hoping on the next go with slightly more leaves I can get more flavour from it.
I had this to go yesterday, as an iced. The guy working looked at my kind of strangely & asked if I wanted any agave nectar in it; so I did.
This had a nice light fruit taste (not sure exactly what kind) & a hint of peppermint that played off the fruit nicely. It was delicious iced, but I think would be even better hot.
I wasn’t quite getting a watermelon scent from the dry notes. Definetly fruity though.
Upon steeping the smell nauseated me, I definetly would not be able to drink this one hot. Once I poured it over ice it had a very slight pink colour, but was more yellowish. I couldn’t wait to take a slurp of this. I got no watermelon flavour from it. It tasted like bubble gum (similar to Teaopia’s Aztec Gold, except more flavourful).
All in all I enjoyed the tea, just wished it tasted more like watermelon
I have only recently started enjoying green teas with fruit flavourings in them.
The dry notes were spectacularly fruity. I wasn’t quite getting the mango scent, perhaps more of the passionfruit (although I’ve never tried an actual passion fruit).
Once steeped I found it lost much of it’s fruity scent, so I added a touch of honey just in case. This tea was nice & light & refreshing. I found there was very little green tea taste (which is great for me, probably less so for someone who loves the taste of green tea).
Had this baby iced this morning. The scent from the bag is freakin’ splendid. So much mango.
I was a little disappointed to see so little tea in the base.
So I scooped out some scoops that had lots of tea & then threw in a few chuncks of the fruit.
It’s so mango-ey, like eating a real juicy mango. It did lack the white tea base flavour (which is fine by me), but I did pay the white tea price so I would have enjoyed a bit more white tea in it.
Oh me oh my! This tea smells so divine. So much pomegranate. I was suprised to see as many pomegranate seeds as I did. So much sticky-goodness.
It brewed to be a nice pink-red pomegranate colour. And man did it ever taste like eating a fresh pomegranate.
I made mine as an iced tea. The pomegegranate came through nicely & the white tea was sitting there along side it.
I’m not positive how I feel about this tea. It’s got a certain smell to it (almost an old smell?). Although I just ordered a black from 52 teas that also has a hint of this same smell.
The smell is still there after steeping & comes through in the taste as well, although not as strong as the scent, thankfully.
I get the cinnamon & a hint of raisins. I think I am almost getting a toast smell, but no butter.
It’s quite good. Buttered Cinnamon Raisin bread is one of my fav breakfast treats. This tea doesn’t quite substitute for it, but pretty close.
The dry notes smells lightly of peach, not as much as I was hopeing for, I’m getting another scent from it, strong- kind of fruity, not sure what it is.
Once steeped the scent of peach comes through a bit more, but I’m still mostly getting the other scent from it. Upon drinking it I discover NO peach flavour :( and the taste of which I smell, and I definetly do not like it.
