That’s pretty much all this tasting note needs, as far as I’m concerned, because isn’t nom the whole point? if nom can be achieved, what else even matters?
Seriously, I hope this tea isn’t at risk of being discontinued, although the fact that it isn’t listed on David’s site anymore doesn’t exactly bode well.
So the smell and the taste actually reflect one another perfectly: so if you don’t like the way this tea smells, you certainly won’t like the way it tastes. Either way, you get a fresh blast of jumbled berries, mostly blueberry and raspberry, I feel. I can also very distinctly taste the acai powder. By that I mean that I haven’t tasted actual acai (I’m not even sure what it is), but it tastes like other things that are flavoured with acai. There’s a bit of tartness in the aftertaste, and I imagine this comes from the juniper berries, which you can’t directly taste while you sip. The whole composition also tastes as though it should be a bubble tea with tapioca balls in it, because that’s what I was instantly reminded of when I began sipping. I honestly don’t know why this tea has such low ratings. I mean, I doctored it up with some milk and sugar, but it still tastes exactly how it smells. It would seem that today would be the day for berry tea!
