Montreal Tea Festival – Tea #7
The last of the three RTD’s from Healtea’s booth – and somewhere in the middle for me in terms of flavour. I actually think this is the strongest of their three offerings conceptually; it’s a ginger/chamomile with some lemon in it. I’d probably enjoy it much more if I actually liked chamomile tea, but I will say that the taste of the chamomile was really apparent and if you actually enjoy that note I think you’d like this. Like the others, I found this a little bit weak/watery, but I actually sort of like that it was a softer take on a ginger profile!? The lemon was very delicate at well, but I get that it isn’t supposed to be a main flavour so it’s fine.
Overall impression of this company? They’re fine – the product is OK quality (nothing bad but nothing mind blowing either). I don’t think they’re filling a big void in the RTD retail space though, and in the category that they are hitting on I really don’t feel like they’re the strongest example of how to achieve those profiles. Happy to have had the chance to sample their whole assortment though!
