Smells nice brewed up. Taste is tart lime forward followed by the musky-earthy-floral dried lime layer and hints of cola nut. Underneath that is the unmistakable leafy-earthy, lightly smokey-bitter taste of yerba mate. A lot like Numi’s Dry Desert Lime but tempered by linden and something else. It was fine on its own but it really excelled when had between bites of steaming Trader Joe’s Aloo Chaat Kati, essentially an Indian Hot Pocket.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

It seems I prepared it wrong?!

derk

What makes you say that

Martin Bednář

Because I strongly disliked this one.

derk

I think dried lime possesses a very polarizing flavor.

Martin Bednář

Maybe I just need to try it again :)

Decided to try it again, as I sent sample to derk and… need to get rid of lots of small samples of teas, but usually I find out I am lazy to prepare it, because my ball strainer is affected by black tea strongly and I can’t wash it properly; and I ran out of empty tea bags (I used last one!) and… preparing grandpa is not always great idea.

Food pairing: Lemon pie flavoured yogurt. Actually pretty delicious, but bit starch I noticed. I hate starch in flavoured yogurts.

To the tea: 2 tea spoons, as I said, empty paper bag, boiling water, 4 minutes steep.
Brew is light yellow and clear; very aromatic of lime and again some medicinal notes.

And now taste? The most afraid part for me. And it is… actually, very tasty! Lime is quite decent and certainly in taste, it is even quite tart – but it is what I expect from lime tea. As well some earthy tea base, probably by linden and cola nuts. Although I can’t recall I have some in bag, but maybe it is just some pieces and it makes it certainly present in taste. I do not notice Yerba Mate at all, maybe again, just a part of that earthy taste.

I have to up the rating! From 58 to… 70?

NHL Match pairing: DET @ BOS. Go Bruins!

I don’t know about CZ, but here pretty much all flavored yogurt is made with starch and too much sugar. Being Greek, we buy Greek yogurt; the real ones don’t use any starch and are just strained. Have you or your family ever made yogurt?

Martin Bednář

Well, we haven’t tried it. Here is (at least) one dairy, who makes yogurts without starch, but getting their products is harder than before. And that dairy is only 25 km (16 mi) far! But big stores do not stock them, because they are, naturally, quite expensive. But their cream yogurts are more than just delicious. (and they have small range of products)

Shanie O Maniac

I actually know someone who self identifies as a “Supertaster” and as such, can’t stand Greek yogurt (or many other foods) because the flavor is too strong for her. Basically, if you cook for her, you can’t use any spices or seasonings because even a little bit makes her… how does she describe it… “It’s like eating perfume.”

Martin Bednář

Shanie: I notice more than other family members, but not that much. It must be kind of nightmare to taste everything.

Shanie O Maniac

If you think that’s bad, imagine being the only person in your immediate family who can smell. It leads to… issues.

Martin Bednář

Shanie: Oh, rather don’t want to :)
But I can understand it is not good at all. But we all are somehow unique. As for me, I have sense of detail when taking photos. But overall, I am rather messy person.

I had to add this one to my Bird & Blend order, just because weird. My 20g packet had three giant dried lime slices, so I made sure to get one in my steeping basket.

Wow, this is quite tart! There’s definitely a bit hit of lime. I’m not sure I really get cola – to me, it tastes more like ginger when combined with the lime. The yerba maté base contributes a bit of earthy and herbal flavor that does pair well with the lime and ginger. The linden does help to lighten it up a bit with a mild floral note.

I’m not quite sure what to think of this one… I was not expecting it to be so tart! Maybe next time I won’t put a whole lime slice in the infuser. The tartness makes the cola flavor taste more like ginger, which does go well with the other flavors.
