I was waiting to try this one from the Christmas sampler pack. Sounded good, but no. It smells and tastes like I mixed my black tea with flat Sprite. The aroma is nice, reminds me of pie :-), but the taste is almost non-existent.
I made the rest of this today as iced. Why? I’ve been getting rid of a lot of baggeds, to make room for my looses! And I didn’t like this one, but I hate to just throw it out. Okay, but the real story is that I got my shipment of Hawaiian Oolong today from Samovar and my nephew is here, drinking all of my tea. But he just drinks it to drink it, he could care less about the taste. He wanted to try the Hawaiian, but I didn’t feel like opening that for him. New teas I like to have on a quiet day at a quiet time, so I can relax and focus on the tea. So I diverted his attention with the Key Lime and it seems to have worked. He drank almost the whole pitcher, while I stealthily hid my Hawaiian in a safe spot.
This one is decupboarded and not wasted after all!
Oh yeah, iced still not great. Actually loses more lime taste iced! Isn’t that weird?
