I can’t help but think this would have been better on a black or heartier base. There’s quite a hit of hot pepper spice, but then sort of nothingness below it. It’s mildly fruity, and the base is actually a lovely green tea, but I think the pairing is wrong. The second time I had this, I think the water was a little too hot (my temperature controlled kettle broke) so the tea turned out slightly bitter. Actually though, that sort of complemented the spicy flavor profile? I had it cold with milk and sugar, and I taste fruit, minerally tea, and a hint of spice. I cold resteeped the leaves, which turned out super spicy! I also get some fruit, but I needed milk to tame the spice. Ha I guess this one is growing on me since I started writing this note a few months ago. The packet is empty now, but I sort of miss it?

Bio

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
