67 Tasting Notes
Very pleasant.This one takes more water than I ordinary do and still tastes very good. I have ate mangosteen before,they are sweet ,extraordinary and typical tropical(but more feminized ) .Pity for me that it’s kind of difficult for me to pick up the good ones,so I think the bad ones may take up quite a proptation (or I just suck at this?).
But the tea company has made excellent pick-ups from the raw fruits, I suppose.The mangosteen flavour here is cleary natual,with its sweetness and smooth、cream-like texture.Green tea,and Matcha(love it) make it refreshing without bringing in bitterness,very well blended. I will buy a box the next time .
Personally I don’t like this one very much.I like cinnamon and its sharp sweetness,good cinnamon itself has the attractiveness of sweat apple,while in this one,cinnamon is rather weak I think,chamomile and apple take too much of control.What’s worse,it taste quite sour ,reminding me of apple vinegar . I can’t fully enjoy it without honey,still not so satisfied even with honey T T .
At last,I would always choose the cinnamon apple tea from Celestial ,they made it quite a surprise for me——everything I’ve been looking forward to from cinnamon tea,the sharp、 spicy sweetness and lovely mellow apple taste is so real.
Just love it ! Some time ago I didn’t have a tiny thought of liking fruit tea.After trying teas from twinnings ,whittard and some imported Deutsch brands,though I admit that some are really good,sth just don’t strike me.Then I got a Sampler Box of Stash,the ones with hibiscus all taste so natural,fresh,and juicy,even the sour-and -a little-bitter aspects blend in so fine and mild.The smell is pleasant,and tea itself is perfect even with out honey/sugar(I like the way they use licorice ,not too much,but making the aftertaste more rounded) .The tea reminds me of my favorite berries. Living in a city where most kinds of berries are rare and expensive,it’s quite a pleasure to enjoy the tea once in a while to cheer me up with fair price.
Thanks to Stash, I ’ve been trying tea with fruits more ,and I think the switch long shut down has been turned on ,and I find myself enjoying these teas,more open to something alike (which I used to dislike in the past)from different brands,truly boarding my understanding of tea .
