I’ve been meaning to review this tea forever, but I’ve had such high hopes from the ingredients, I wanted to save it for a night when I could focus on it properly, so here it is! The first thing that hit me as I opened the bag was a delicious fruity scent, more citrus, followed by sweet nut. There were generous pieces of fruit and nut in my sample.
For some reason, as I took the steeper out of my cup, the wet leaf smelled more like grapefruit than anything else, is it just me?
The first sip was all orange flavor, tangy, with the almond and rooibos giving a nutty finish. Enough sweetness to make me want more, but not so much as to turn me off after a few sips. I would call it an overall “juicy” flavor, with nut coming in second, and maybe even a bit of cream in the end?
Huge thanks to Columbia Kate’s Teahouse for sending me a sample of this tea, I know it was a pain across the border!
Overall, this is as good as I was expecting, and I just wish I had more!
