151 Tasting Notes
This one is good. I generally oversteep my teas however, as I like them extremely strong. Unfortunately if you oversteep this one, it becomes sickeningly strong, to the point where it hurts your teeth. It is delicious iced, as well as hot, so long as it is steeped for exactly as long as they say. It is a little less citrusey to me than the pink flamingo, but I kind of like that.
In the winter, I was drinking this hot. Now that its summer I have tried it iced, and I love it both ways. It is the perfect citrus blend. I can’t generally have citrus teas as I am deathly allergic to mango but this one here doesn’t have mango in it so it is perfect. I get the perfect summery fruit blend without dying !
I’m not sure why, but I hd always avoided this tea for some reason. I tasted it when it was the TOTD at Davids a few weeks ago, and realized I had been making a huge mistake. This is delicious both iced and hot. I find I have to steep it for a really long time, but it is well worth it. The taste reminds me of something from my childhood that I can’t quite pinpoint.
This tea is exactly what it says it is.. blueberry jam. It is very good iced and hot. I don’t normally find blueberry teas too strong, but this one is extremely strong, especially being paired with the black tea base. I really enjoy the strength of it. I was hesitant at first because they did put stevia in it, and I definitely like to control my own sweetener in it (as i drink most teas black).
This tea has slowly become a staple. I didn’t think it would become a favorite, but it really is. It is quite potent and one cup gives me enough energy to get up and go.. which is awesome because I am a reformed coffee drinker who drank up to 5 black coffees a day. The taste is a little bit medicinal if you get a spoonful without too much berry, but other than that this steeps up quite nicely and is excellent warm or cold.
I don’t usually get green teas, or fruit teas at all, but the associate working that day suggested it to me as I constantly get sore throats in the winter…. she told me to not completely boil the water, and to put honey in it as well and it will work like a charm! … she was right! … everytime I feel a sore throat coming on I have some of this and feel much better…. I will definitely be keeping a tin in my cupboard year round from now on!
