63 Tasting Notes
The green tea base tastes of grass and hay. The additives are listed as natural pomegranate flavoring and raspberries. There are very few little red fruit pods in the tea so there is not a lot of fruit flavor in the tea. There also isn’t much of an aftertaste. It isn’t at all what I expected because the flavor is so mild but I like it.
I must be odd because I don’t like the way this tea smells in the bag but it smells alright once it’s steeped. But my goodness, the taste. It is all caramel. The black tea makes a nice base but it kind of gets lost in the yummy-ness of the caramel flavor. It begs for a bit of sweetness and is greatly enhanced by it. Dairy makes it taste like a caramel candy but it muddies the tea for me. A bit of sugar makes this tea addicting. I want to try it iced now!
This tea smells great. That’s pretty much the only nice thing I can say about it. I’ve tried it with cream and sugar, I’ve tried it with just cream, with just sugar, and just plain. No matter what I add or how long I steep it, it comes out bland. Anyone want the rest of my box?
This leaves me with the same feelings as the caffeinated version so I’ll post the same review:
Unsteeped, this tea smells a little off. Bergamot is there of course but it smells of chemicals somehow. Once steeped, the smell improves but the flavor is just average. It’s smooth in the mouth. I like it with a teaspoon of sugar.
