On the seventh day of Christmas, 52Teas gave to me…Lime Jello Salad!
I could tell I was going to like this one even as I was opening the packet. The scent of lime nerds hit me in the nose — fresh, zingy, sweet and yet slightly sour at the same time. Taking a deeper sniff, I can detect pineapple and lime in equal measure. It’s just like a tropical dessert!
Opening these little packets have become the highlight of my day. I love getting to try something new every evening, and it’s really shaking up (and making me question) my tea drinking habits. I think it’s safe to say I’ve never tried a tea quite like this before, and it’s extremely fun!
I left this to cool a little before trying it, as that’s when I’ve generally had the best experiences with green tea. The taste was sweeter and more delicate than I was expecting; I can definetly taste lime, but the pineapple is pretty lost. I’m not sure I can really detect a “salad” element either.
What I’m getting from this, then, is a very pleasant lime-flavoured green tea, but not much else. I like the way it tastes both sweet and slightly tangy at the same time, like sour lime candy. It lacked some of the complexity I was expecting, though, and didn’t rock my world in quite the way I thought it would. Nevertheless, this was a more pleasant green tea than most I’ve tried, and one I’ll happily drink again.
