GCTTB DAY 5
Another tasty tea I brought with me to work today. I brewed this in the afternoon after my lunch break. Honestly, I had a lot of onions in my lunch and I think it might have messed with my tasting of the tea (onion breath, eugh) but I was still able to enjoy it.
I remember smelling a tin of this at Bed Bath and Beyond a few times, but they never seemed to have this one in stock! It was the only one of their Tea Squared products that I was interested in purchasing, too. So I’m really happy I had the chance to try it now.
The green tea base was quite nice – smooth and very slightly vegetal, none of that weird fishiness or seaweed taste. Honestly this tea smells so good, but it lacks a little bit of that greatness in the flavour. It is still pretty enjoyable, but loses “wow power” in the flavour profile. The aroma is dominated by the sweet candied mango note, and it smells absolutely delicious. It gets a little lost in the actual tea, but still comes through in a more mellow tone. I quite liked this tropical, fruity green tea blend. I remember thinking if one of the ingredients was kombucha, because the blend produced an overall flavour that tasted like there might have been some kombucha added to this. Not that I’m complaining, I think it would make a great addition here. Nonetheless, I was pretty impressed.
