I’m sipping on a large-ish tumbler of this, iced, as I review. I was in one of the Victoria BC DAVIDs this past weekend and stocked up while I was within reasonable distance of a store… The closest stores to me are around 500 miles away. ((Sob)) Upon smelling the dry leaf I promptly asked for 50g of this maté as I’ve been in dire need of some new ones.
Dry leaf: lemon zest, lemon juice, sour berries, maté leaf
Liquor: lemons, bright berry, weed (for real)
Tasting notes: (iced) berries, Meyer lemon, blackberry leaf, fresh blueberry
Oooooh, this one. I am loving this iced! I was worried that if would be too tart but it definitely isn’t. I actually appreciate that this doesn’t taste exactly like lemonade… But rather a greener, fresher, more berry infused lemon concoction. (Since you know, that’s what is is…) I was also pleased to NOT taste the smell of weed that I briefly, yet unmistakably detected when this was steeping. Phew. This is really refreshing and the flavor profile happily does not echo any teas I currently have in my cupboard, nor that I have previously tried. Yay for discovering new teas that are GOOD! I see this being a moderator between me and this annoyingly hot summer weather that I am 100% done with at the moment. Thank god.
Flavors: Berries, Blackberry, Blueberry, Cannabis, Citrusy, Fruity, Honeydew, Lemon, Lemon Zest
