3741 Tasting Notes
Citizen Tea had a free shipping sale last weekend so I decided to check out a few samples. This was among the bunch that I ordered. Both cactus and fig are flavors that intrigue me so I figured why not.
It’s actually quite lovely. It’s got a nice sweet fig taste atop the smooth green base. Not sure if it is the cactus or the aloe but there is also a little bit of a fresh taste here that is ever so slightly minty. Just a touch of grass from the base and you got a pleasant enough tea. I don’t know if it is one I would need to keep stocked but it’s nice while I have it.
I’m trying to get this one to work for me but I am just not succeeding yet. The base and the popped rice are definitely present and lovely, as per usual. The mango and the coconut and all other flavors are hiding. Hopefully sometime soon they come out because they sound like they would be delightful.

For those of you who know this tea, you know how that awesome smell but it doesn’t usually measure up in taste? Well in my smoothie it’s 110% coming through in taste. It’s amazing. But it’s more than just that awesome cotton candy flavor. It’s creamy. It’s like a cotton candy milkshake. And yet I can taste the mango and it’s like it’s drizzled in milk chocolate. So many awesome flavors I can pick out on their own and together they are one of my best smoothies yet.
This tea, frozen mango, chocolate pudding, skim milk and the raspberry & star anise jam.
You know how you’re on a diet and then you accidentally eat 2 slice of pizza? Or how you accidentally dropped your phone down not one, but 2 flights of stairs? No? Just me? I think I’ll blame the devil, who I am almost 100% convinced is possessing my terrible dog, Cole.
Or perhaps the devil had a role in this tea because it is just kind of disappointing. It has a strong smell of chai spices and yet it is pretty bland. Maybe some cinnamon and a bit drying but there really isn’t a lot happening here. It’s just sort of forgettable.
