Picked this RTD up from T&T a while back – it had a huge end cap display which caught my attention. End caps are usually reserved for either new products or best selling products, and both of those things intrigue me when it comes to these imported bottled teas…

The grape flavour of this one is A LOT. Very dark, sweet purple grape notes in a way that is practically like a Jolly Rancher candy but without any acidity and with a subtle floral undertone. Not really natural, though. And very intense. I actually liked it a lot, and if that was the only flavour I think this would be a pretty positive review. We’ve gotta talk about the oolong, though. Honestly, kudos to being able to taste it at all given how much the grape smacks you in the palate. Unfortunately, when it rears its head at the end of the sip the flavour isn’t exactly a welcome one. It’s very, very earthy in a way that kind of tastes like straight up dirt. Not pleasant, but like… the “mud pie” a toddler would make for you that’s sludgy and gross and probably had a bunch of stuff in it that’s ever more questionable that the dirt itself. I just found myself dreading taking my next sip because I knew it was going to finish on such an awful, lingering flavour…

I had a really bad success rate with this company so far. Yikes.
