I’m just coming out of a four-day stretch of migraines, so please bear with me if this note jumps around and makes less sense than usual. My brain still isn’t fully functional.
I went into Teavana looking to buy some of the Scarlet Jasmine I tried last time. The employee working at the counter informed me that the Scarlet Jasmine was actually a blend of this tea and the Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls. Instead of buying the minimum 100g (why don’t they let you buy blended teas in smaller quantities?), I decided to buy 50g of the Dragonfruit to blend at home with my DavidsTea Dragon Pearls. The result tasted almost exactly like the in-store Scarlet Jasmine sample. So hooray for spending less money than I had intended!
On its own, this one makes a nice bedtime tea. It’s a little on the sweet side, so I prefer it blended with green tea, but as far as fruity herbals go it’s one I would enjoy having regularly. I imagine it will be fantastic cold. I’ll have to try that soon.
It’s got a lot of apple and strawberry. I’m not familiar enough with the taste of dragonfruit to pick it out specifically, but I’m sure it’s there. This one tastes much less artificial than some other blends I’ve tried. I also enjoy the light floral scent of the leaves. I’m a fan of floral/fruit blends. The hibiscus adds a nice tart touch, but isn’t overpowering in any way.
Overall, I like it. I’m glad I invested in this one.
