This tea is weird. I was initially most looking forward to it, but after reading reviews, seeing it, and smelling it, I’m actually pretty apprehensive. The brewed aroma is actually not particularly pleasant… I can’t place it, but it’s weird. The aftertaste reminds me of another DT that (again), I can’t place (Mango Madness is coming to mind? Or Midsummer Night’s Dream?), but I’m having trouble getting over the smell. Smell is a key part of the tea experience, for me, so it makes it difficult to enjoy a tea if it smells funky, even if that doesn’t translate to the flavour.
Ok, I added milk (same as the other teas, 4:1 tea:2% cow’s milk), and I suddenly realized that drinking this warm is a bad idea. I actually gagged slightly, to be honest, so this is going into the fridge to chill and I’ll try it again tomorrow.
ETA: Chilled, it’s no better. I suppose it does have a sort of watered-down cereal ish taste… but something about it turns me off, I don’t know.
