Smells like pineapple, tastes like… pineapple mango, with a touch of something astringent and metallic in it – although I fear that’s me adding a touch too much sweetener than the tea itself. I get little vanilla anything, however it is a lovely tea, I’ll just need to make more and drink it straight to see if the weirdness is user error.

1.5 tsp in 12 oz.

thank you MissB for this!

dry this smells like xmas to me. oranges and fruit…. spices, (clove especially) and seasonal zippiness. has a lovely balanced smell. however, the balance and robustness goes away when the water is added!!!! it’s a misleading tea! no fair =0(

it’s not bad…. just not what the smell advertised. humph. i think it has unrealized aspirations….

So this is the one that I got as a latte To Go. I was sorta leaning towards Walnut Truffle initially but then I thought “Fuck it, I’ve had Walnut Truffle and I know I like it – lets do something new!”. Honestly, I’d never given this one much thought at all but it was the first thing the sales lady suggested and dry it smelled very flavourful if not a little weird as something to pair with milk.

It was basically very strongly fruity with juicy mango and papaya notes and some creamy peachyness to it. Not something I’d typically think to pair with milk; but I often like weird so hell, why not?

I actually had it with Soy Milk because that’s all the store had atm; and that was kind of weird for me because I typically don’t drink soy milk in anything; I just don’t like the flavour. I was worried that automatically all I’d say would be the soy and this would be unpleasant. However, it was really delightful! It was certainly very flavourful with very rich, juicy and intensely creamy mango, papaya, and peach notes. There were also very faint orange notes playing along with the other notes too. The mango was probably the most prominent flavour though.

It was smooth and juicy with lovely tropical notes in general. it’s a slight bit more on the candy sweet side though than the natural, realistic one. Also, apparently there’s pineapple in this, but I didn’t get that from it which is I guess a bit of a shame; I think I’d have enjoyed that element. I don’t know – I just felt really satisfied with the whole cup; it was smooth with no astringency and really different. I don’t think I want 50g of it but I’ll probably add this to my “line up” of Go To flavours to get “To Go” when I visit Tea Desire…

EDIT: Oh hey, this is tasting note 1600! I guess 1666 is my next fun number? I’ll have to find something devilish for that note…

Flavors: Cream, Mango, Orange, Peach, Tropical

OMGsrsly

Woo, 1600! :)

Ty to MissB for a sample! I’ve been wanting to try more Tea Desire, especially since they don’t do samples last time I bought off them. This blend definitely tastes a little tropical, lots of pineapple, bit of mystery tropical flavor (the mango/papaya) and some creamyness.
There’s some astringency popping out the more I sip, as well as some savory notes. Overall, not bad for a tropical tea, I have really similar tea from lupicia somewhere I haven’t tried yet so I may have to compare the two.
