I found this quite bland no matter how long it steeped. All I seemed to get was warm sugary water.
I was initially disappointed in this tea, which even after a long steep proved wishy-washy. However, my opinion has now changed as i have stopped having it hot and use it cold over ice the the taste is actually at its best, and as a “mixer” with other blends like “Just Ginger” which make brilliant combination brews, out of what is really a very ordinary stand-alone tea.
I find the other reviews confusing on this product. My experience has always been that it is so creamy and sweet that I can only tolerate 1/4 of a cup. It’s somewhat of a ‘novelty’ tea for me, and I bring it out when I want to share something different with friends. A conversation starter if you will, because of its such unusual creamy taste.
The reason why I purchased this was because it smelled absolutely amazing in store.
I had not tried fruit teas previously so was not sure what to expect but I had a somewhat positive experience with this.
The taste is very light, regardless of how long you steep it, which is not something I particularly like. I find myself actually eating it straight from the tin rather than drinking it. This would be more appropriate in warmer weather as an ice tea so I’ve left it in the back of the cupboard in favour of T2’s Autumn.
