4 Tasting Notes
Dear Goji Pop,
I know this is kind of sudden, but…would you marry me? From the moment I first smelled you, I knew we were destined to meet. Your hot pink colour and sunny smell and fruity taste light up my day. Our wedding will be filled with flowers and sweetness, just like you. So, what do you say, Goji Pop? Would you be mine forever?
I’m normally not a fan of rooibos – I find it too dry – but since it was reinvented as a sweet flavour for this tea, I thought I’d give it a try. Well, it still had that warm, hay-like rooibos flavour, but there was a nice creamy taste to offset it. Not too bad, but I don’t think I’d drink it again just on its own.
I tried it again later, with milk this time. I think it improved the flavour, but diluted it too much. Maybe there’s a way to add milk and then concentrate it? I dunno. I guess I’ll stick to my green and black teas for now.
Do you remember those little caramel squares you used to get Trick-or-Treating? Those are exactly what this tea smells like. It’s not until you taste the tea that you sense the apricot and green tea as well. I never would have thought of combining such different flavours, but they blend wonderfully together. This tea quickly became one of my candy substitutes. I should probably also mention that the packaging has cute ghosts on it.
It smells like dark chocolate and warms like chillies – what more could you ask for on a cold winter day? The warm, sweet, chocolatey aroma is right at home in this black tea. The taste is perfect on its own, so there’s no need to add sugar or milk. This tea is the ultimate warm-up and an instant favourite of mine.
