Sipdown (453)!

Last tea of the day, and the free sample I got in my Teavivre order.

Anyone who’s been following me on Steepster for a while knows I have a weird relationship with goji berries; I’m totally fascinated by them but 9/10 times I inevitably completely fail to taste them in blends. I’ve probably tried close to a hundred different blends with goji berries in them and I’m STILL not even 100% sure I know what they taste like. So, I was actually SUPER happy to get this as a sample. Finally, the mystery of what goji berries taste like will be solved for me!

I let this steep for about half an hour; mostly because I forgot it was steeping if I’m being perfectly honest here. I’m incredibly frustrated though because even after half an hour of steeping I can hardly taste ANYTHING when I sip on this!? Like, the ‘tea’ visually looks like it’s steeped/infused because it has a clear yellowish tint to it but I straight up just taste water when I drink it, with a sliver of a sort of sweet but VERY non-distinct sugary note in the finish – and only the finish. WHAT. THE. FUCK.

Why can I not seem to crack the mysterious flavour of goji!? I mean, the dried goji certainly smelled fruity/had a nice aroma to it by I legit don’t feel like I’m drinking anything but hot water, possibly sweetened with like table sugar or something. Am I alone in this? ‘Cause I’ve DEFINITELY heard people describe things as tasting either like goji or goji tasting sweet and fruity/like generic red fruit. Are they just bullshitting everyone else or is this actually a unique to me anomaly where I simply cannot pick up on the flavours here?

Ugh! This was supposed to be an informative cup of tea that would answer a question I’ve had for literal years and now I’m just frustrated and left with even more questions than I had in the first place! This is not the kind of relaxing/satisfying cup of tea that I had planned on ending my evening with…

Damn it.

I tried a fresh goji berry once, it was extremely bitter. Only other goji flavor I’d had was in flavored water which tasted completely different.

Goji berries are disgusting. Honestly, you’re not missing out! If it’s driving you crazy, order some fresh or dried goji berries to try – I can’t imagine the flavour translating well into tea.

Jujube fruit tea is an asian tea that might be interesting to try. I’ve never had it though.

TeaVivre

In China, we usually use Goji to brew with chrysanthemum and Jujube, which is very good for health benefits. Besides, we also add some Goji when stew bone soup or chicken soup

Maybe try some dried goji berries as they’re pretty easy (if not necessarily cheap due to the health food craze). They have an interesting taste, slightly tart with an almost savoury finish. I like them cooked in oatmeal. I’ve never really been wild about them in tea as I’ve found that most companies just use hibiscus to achieve the tartness and call it good.
