This is very strongly scented; my 5-year-old even recognized it instantly as chewy pink bubblegum. It mixes easily, and tasted just okay without sweetener. With sweetener however, holy moly. It’s like I’m drinking pink chewy bubblegum, including that chewy mouthfeel. Really a challenge to describe, and again my son commented that it was like drinking bubblegum. For me, this is a weird concept my brain couldn’t wrap around… I’m so used to spitting out gum when it’s done. Drinking something that tastes identical to it? Uh… brain confused.

Having said that, it is a perfect replica. It tastes a bit chemically, however so does bubblegum to me. I’ve already finished the cup, and I can still smell it.

Would I recommend this? Definitely, at no more than delicate level, and only if you truly love the chewy pink stuff. I like bubblegum, however I think I’d prefer chewing it to drinking it? I’m still so confused. High marks because it really is an excellent replica.

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
