20 Tasting Notes
I am not the biggest fan of this tea, however I am a HUGE fan of the effects of guayusa apparently.
It has a wierd bitter taste that reminds me of good tasting lipgloss. It gives me tons of energy and with a bit of agave I can handle drinking it, but it’s not my first choice of energy teas. I’d much rather have a mate.
I’m also aware that this is the only guayusa tea i’ve had, so I intend on trying to find one that is a bit easier on the taste buds.
This tea smells like alcohol to me and I am not a fan, however when it’s steeped it smells like pink ice cream and tastes like pink ice cream. I tried it as an iced latte today and flipped right out. It was amazing. My biggest concerns with this tea are (1) the fact that I only want to drink this from now untill I die and (2) When you steep it it’s not hot pink. :(
The fragrance and name of this tea are a bit misleading. The “Mulberry” refers to the leaves in the tea base. There is macadamia nuts in it that you couldn’t really smell.
When this tea is steeped it tastes like macadamia nuts, which I have only ever had in macadamia nut cookies. So this tea reminds me of drinking a cup of hot cookies! However it’s calorie and sugar free so I can have as much as I want.
The colour of this tea is gross! Full on, an unappetizing shade of swamp green. This deters me from drinking it out of my glass thermos and serving it to friends, but whateves…more for me.
