1096 Tasting Notes
I got this as a sample with my recent order. I am not sure what happened but the sample is a little crushed even though the package seemed to be packaged fairly well. In any case, I find this to be kind of an odd combination and it seemed to be more astringent than I was expecting. Maybe I will pick up a little to see if I can brew it again. I used the whole sample pack up already
I was browsing through Sobeys when I saw that they had a bunch of tea on sale. $8 for 80g…sure I’ll try it. I bought this fully expecting that it wouldn’t be on Steepster. So I was surprised to see it here!
I was pleasantly surprised twitch this blend. I saw that there was roses in it, so I picked most of those out. The fig is something I have never seen in a fruit tisane before. I enjoyed it as a cold brew and I found the hibiscus wasn’t too overpowering here. It was sweet enough with no added sweetener. Not too bad!
Now I will have to cold brew the other tea I bought from Tea Squared—a flavoured green.
There is an articificial taste that I get that kind of tastes like the peach juice that I used to get as a kid from Tim Hortons. I’m not sure if they still have that juice or not but it is similar to a lot of cheap grocery store juice crystals.
I actually don’t mind that taste on occasion, I just have to keep in mind that it doesn’t taste very natural. I do enjoy this white mango tea though anyway.
This was actually a pretty decent cold brew. It was mildly pink but the hibiscus was fairly tame. The peach isn’t as strong as I was hoping but the orange is quite refreshing. I didn’t find that the licorice got out of hand either, it was fairly tame.
I would likely buy this again for cold brews this summer.
