Oddly enough for a green tea I think this one needs a higher temperature to really get the flavour out.

My beloved Mangosteen Green with Matcha was on clearance at the grocery store, which scares me. I really hope they’re not discontinuing it. And they were all out of it!
So I had been meaning to try this tea for awhile (which was also on clearance) and bought it in place of Mangosteen. It brews up that thin red color that only comes from grocery store herbal teas (especially those with rosehips and hibiscus). It’s okay. Not nearly as good as the Mangosteen, but I’ll drink it from time to time.
The water temperature’s really very low because I was impatient and downstairs waiting for something on my laptop, but also wary around leaving the water upstairs alone waiting for it to boil. So I just hoped it was hot enough, poured it into my pot, brought it down, and stuck my thermometre in it. Bah! I didn’t want to go back up and finish boiling it.
It smells like fruit rollups. Seriously. The kind of strawberry flavouring they use in fruitrollups. It’s making me crave them.
Slighty tart from the berries, and faintly green. A bit meh, but I did steep it at a rather cool temperature. Pleasant, actually. I don’t know how strongly I’d be able to drink this tea, so the mildness is nice. Berry with a hint of green. Less green than I was expecting. I get a very fruity tartness at the back of my throat after each sip. I sort of get the green tea taste first, and then get hit with the berryness.
I wouldn’t mind getting this myself, to drink on occasion. Actually, the deli inside the department store I work at sells Stash teas, including this one, and I was amused (and reminded!) when I saw it.
I’m noticing more tartness the more I sip it. Also, my cat seems to approve, because he keeps eyeing it.
For something that’s supposed to contain matcha, I really don’t taste it. Hmm. Ah well. Still enjoyable.
With this gone, I think the only thing I have left from Jillian is the darjeeling and the white pear.
I was in a little store out in the country and oddly enough, this was one of the only teas they had. I decided to buy it because I’d never tried goji berries and I didn’t have any green tea left.
It turns out I love this stuff. It smells EXACTLY like these apricot fruit roll-ups that I like and even tastes a bit like them! It reminds me of childhood too, like a kool-aid flavor for adults. :)
Last night I was doing virgin cherry koolaid shots. I mention this because the bright red colour of this tea reminds me of that. Actually, there is strawberry in it too! Lol
On the first 120 mL shot of this, I get a lot of the berries acidity. On the second steeping, a lot more of the aroma of perhaps liquorice and whatever else they are putting in it.
On the third steep most of the colour is gone, now it is brownish. It’s a warm flavour now, not unpleasant.
Also note that there isn’t any goji berry in this, just flavouring!
This does not taste like it smells. It tastes just fruity—watermelon and strawberries. It’s good—but not what I expected. I can’t taste the tea at all; rather, it tastes like an herbal blend. I’d recommend it for those who like herbal, fruity teas.
