36 Tasting Notes
Stevia scares me. All my previous experiences with it have left me with a funny taste in my mouth and even less of a desire to find a healthy sugar alternative. So I was apprehensive of this tea. But, the yogurt bits drew me in so I bought a small bag. Turns out stevia CAN work well as a sweetener. The yogurt bits melt and create a kind of filminess in the tea, which is kinda weird. But everything else. The smell. The taste. It’s like making (terrible looking) lattice top peach pies in the summer all over again. K, now I want peach pie…guess I’ll just have to have a cup of this!
When I went to the store I smelled this tea and was confused because I had come into the store to replenish my Forever Nuts stash. It’s basically a fancier, winterier version of Forever Nuts. Really yummy, resteeped great, and relaxed me so well the other night that I was falling asleep while drinking it.
I’m a green tea girl at heart. But lately I’ve been sticking more to blacks because I just need more caffeine. This tea reminded me why I love green tea so much. The nuts (subtle which is what I like) and the fruit balance each other out perfectly. I like to crumble the larger chunks of walnut into smaller pieces so that the walnuts last longer and because honestly, can you actually “steep” the flavour out of a walnut? And if you can, wouldn’t it work better if it was in smaller pieces? But that’s just me. Anyway. I had to buy a big tin.
I. Adore. Green rooibos!!!!!!!
Since I require copious amounts of caffeine to get through my day, I sometimes forget about my rooibos blends. And every time I go back to this one I remember just why I love it. The earthiness of the green rooibos combined with all the sweetness from the different kinds of fruit results in this amazing combination of refreshing-relaxing-tropical vacationness.
Tea with popcorn? What will they think of next…
I love apple, so this tea definitely gets points for that. However, I was disappointed at the amount (rather, lack of amount) of green tea in it.
Still, a delicious drink. They could probably benefit from removing the green tea altogether so that people don’t get disappointed from how little is in it and add something else like caramel bits.
