The dry and brewed tea smell very similar to Mountain Dew. On first taste of the hot tea, it is very blah. It is a black tea with some kind of lemoney, orange-y taste but there is not much black tea or citrus flavour taste. I added a few pieces of brown rock sugar and VOILA! It tastes just like Mountain Dew but without all the sugar. I love Mountain Dew, so I think this tea is going to be a good substitute. Can’t wait to try it iced!

Edit: Made this one iced. Brewed double strength for 3 minutes, added brown rock sugar, then chilled. It actually was not as good iced as I had expected. It still has a bit of Mountain Dew taste but it is very blunted. I would say it is more specifically citrus when iced. I am getting lots of lime and orange, there is some sweetness but it also has a tart finish. Kind of like Sweet Tarts candy. The black base is much more prominent when iced. It adds a bit of spice to the citrus flavours. Still good, but I think I prefer this one hot.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
