From the LiberTEAS sampler I bought a while back
This is a delightfully odd tea…there’s a berry high note that swoops down into a warm chai base; between the two there’s an interplay of sweetness and spice that I find rather wonderful on first taste.
The front berry notes don’t taste like any berry in particular…more like generic “berry,” if that makes any sense. There’s a bit of an astringent dryness that sits at the end, but the well-settled, mellow spicyness really makes up for it.
Although I like this tea I must admit that the longer I drink it the more convinced I am that it’s not a favourite. It seems a little undecided in terms of flavours and I’d almost rather it put some effort into being an awesome berry tea or an awesome chai instead of just being good at both.
It’s a good tea to drink while you’re doing something else, but not one I’d want to drink on my own. Steadfastly mediocre, it seems.
