I went to visit my friend yesterday and this was her offering for an evening cup. I enjoyed it, it’s simple and unfussy. You can taste the green tea base and mostly lemon but I didn’t really get any of the honey. The lemon isn’t as citrussy as some of the other lemon teas that I’ve had, thanks to the ginseng element which tones it down a bit and makes it more smooth with its herbal flavour. No bitterness detected at all. For a cheaper, grocery store tea, this is a good option.
Flavors: Green, Herbal, Lemon, Smooth
The packaging for Portuguese market looks different; but I assume the tea will be same. But it seems there aren’t much markets where is it actually offered? I was struggling finding any information.
Anyway, I got this tea from Postcrossing forum tag game.
The sender told me it’s their favourite.
It is clearly noticeable it’s rooibos. With hints of oranges, but not a juicy ones, rather just the peel. Not bad, but expectations were much higher. It’s just mediocre. Shame, (becaute) because the tea bag design seems so promising!
Flavors: Orange Zest, Rooibos
I picked this up when I saw it at the store a couple weeks ago. I ended up getting a mix pack of Celestial Seasonings herbal teas as well.
This one is nice because you do just drop it in your cold water. The hibiscus is very present, but I don’t mind it like this. The flavour is fruity. It’s easy. It’s tastier than cold water, plain.
I like one bag in my very large mug (22oz?) but really whatever works, I just keep adding water during the day.
Big downside: the bags are plastic so they’re not compostable.
It was already hot today when I woke up, so I decided to play around and try making a cold tea latte. My initial efforts failed spectacularly, in which I dropped a tea bag into cold milk and hoped for the best. After like an hour, some tea flavour had come out of the tea bag and there was a little tea taste in the milk, so I said, fine whatever, I’ll just drink it weak because I didn’t want to wait anymore. So I added my usual amount of sugar and this drink was SWEET. Like, unbearably so.
I then poured that tea into a container to hopefully salvage later, stuck it in the fridge, and went back to the drawing board. This time I figured I’d start with some hot water to extract the tea flavour, so I used a small amount of boiling water in a mug and steeped a second tea bag just fine as expected. Super dark, looks very strong. This cup too I put into the fridge to cool down.
Once everything was cold, I took my original drink, added a bunch more milk to it and most of the “concentrated tea”.
The result – a drinkable cold tea latte or rather a container with enough tea for two cold tea lattes!
I think I more prefer this tea warm, but I guess this is okay to keep me cool.
