294 Tasting Notes
I had this iced this morning after receiving it as a sample from Fusion Teas. It was so delicious. More red in colour than I thought it would be. It has a nice grapefruit taste which comes out above everything else. It’s not bitter & tart like an actual grapefruit which was fantastic. And had a nice slight sweet taste.
I knew with the ingredients I was probably not going to be a big fan of this tea, but I am an insomniac desperate for sleep so I tried it. I have to say I wasn’t thrilled on the taste or smell. It was a little weak in both areas, probably a good thing. I love peppermint tea, but this tea lacked it.
On the upside despite the taste & smell I actually go a pretty decent sleep.
I had this as an iced tea on a hot day. I feel as a hot tea it would probably be too sweet. It was a little on the weak side (taste wise- sweetness was there) even though I doubled the amount. I couldn’t figure out the taste I was gettting from it (something familiar & yummy), until I read other notes here, it was definetly bubble gum. I am definetly looking forward to more of this on hot days.
I was so excited to try this, it smells fabulous & I love all things spicy. I was terribly dissapointed. I doubled the amount of leaves, as I do with all tea, good thing I did, because I would have been sipping hot water. There was very little strawberry flavour & although there was a slight peppery after taste, the “blazing” was definetly missing.
