I haven’t been in the mood for anything flavoured in a long time and truth be told I’m still not but I have so many samples that my shelves are overwhelmed. I have no other option but to drink my flavoured samples to make room for tea that is currently residing in a cardboard box. I might find that some of the flavoured teas surprise me.
So I’m starting with randomly chosen Lime Gelato which is actually something I have never tried before. I know what gelato is but it’s not something that we really have in the UK, and as far as a lime ice cream goes I cannot say I have tried such a thing. All in all I’m expecting perhaps a sweet, lime, citrus flavour with an edge of being creamy. Well that’s my guess, now to find out.
The raw blend has a sweet, citrus scent that is more lemongrass than lime along with a creamy undertone. Similar to sherbet.
Once steeped this has a sweet lemongrass scent that is subtle and creamy. Flavour is mellow, citrusy, sweet, creamy and slightly tart. I still think it’s more lemongrass than lime but I don’t think it matters too much. For a tea that smells like sherbet it’s not as sweet as I expected or as thick in flavour but my husband likes it so perhaps I’m just being unfair.
Overall I would drink it again but wouldn’t buy it.
