I’m sipping on this tea this afternoon because I have just been drinking so many black teas lately that I needed a bit of a change. My friend bought me this tea as a congratulations on my new job. She knew I liked tea, so she picked one up for me! So sweet. I am a fan of Mighty Leaf’s White Orchard, so I was pretty excited to try this one, too.
First off, I have no idea how hot my water is at work, so I may have steeped it at water that was too hot. That being said, I wasn’t too impressed by this tea. It did have a pleasant, generic tropical kind of taste that was to be expected. However, it verges on the edge of tasting medicinal to me rather than natural, juicy fruit flavors. It’s nice enough to have at work, so I’ll probably keep it around my desk somewhere.
Edit: As it’s cooling, the flavor becomes more medicinal, eek. I’ll just have to gulp it down while it’s still hot!
