6 Tasting Notes
My taste buds are singing but my wallet is crying. I bought 50g of this and I already want a tin. Brewed it this morning for 6 minutes and the smell alone made me drool. I drank it unsweet and it was so naturally sweet and caramelly… such a happy start to the morning! I picked the mulberries out of the strainer afterwards and they were equally as sweet and delicious. This is right up there with Milk Oolong, and I think it might even take the cake as my new favorite tea.
Excited to try it iced (although I have a feeling this is going to be a strictly hot tea) and as a latte.
So I bought 25 g of this and didn’t really love it. Iced was way better than cold for sure but today on the LAST bits i decided to throw in some soy milk with it while it was iced. It’s like a stroke of genius and soooo delicious I can’t even bear to throw away the leaves because I want to drink more and more. Might have to keep a little of this in my stash for those creamy, peachy days in the summer.
This is one strange tea. It smells bright and refreshing and not sickly lemon or cleaner lemon, but like real lemons! The color is so happy too.
On the advice of the sales girl, I brewed it in a T-sac and a dark mug to avoid staining. I added a little raw honey to taste. While its brewing, the smell mellows out considerably and smells kind of like Indian cooking. Nonetheless, I took a leap of faith and drank some!
YUM. The lemon taste from the dry leaves really pops out and it tastes refreshing and energizing even though it’s rooibos! It has a little aftertaste of cooking still but it’s really good.
Second steep… not so great… it REALLY tastes like cooking now BLECH.
It’s a great tea and its worth trying but I can’t imagine repurchasing it unless its for health reasons.
Hmm this tea is weird. It steeps to a nice pretty color and smells delicious, but wen I drink it straight without anything… there’s not much flavor. BUT. Add a little honey and it’s transformed into a juicy, lemony, berry deliciousness! I tried it hot which was not very good but poured over ice is amazingggg. Like everyone else said, it’s thirst-quenching and I chugged my glass down after mopping the floors at work.
My one issue is the weight/bulk of it. I bought a 50g bag to try and after making one cup a little less than half the bag was gone! it’s pretty expensive for what you get, maybe David’s should sell this one differently but that’s just my opinion.
I think I’m gonna try mixing this with Perrier for a study drink/treat.
So I’m on a caffeine “cleanse” (I miss my oolongs… 2 weeks to go) and I picked this up the other day. Dry, it smells like cough syrup to me but then again, I think that about most rooibos teas so I bought 50g to try. I tried it both hot and cold.
Hot: It was pretty good. Very smooth, mellow flavors and it’s definitely relaxing. I drank some before bed and it had me nodding off. It tastes a little cough syrupy when it’s hot, but it’s not a horrible taste somehow!
Cold: YUM. this tasted like a creamy, orangey bubblegum! Weird I know but somehow it works and it’s sooo delicious when cold with a little honey. Tastes like happiness in a cup :)
Next, I’ll try it as a latte. Yay for new tea discoveries.
