Well, I came across two DTs sample tin boxes, make that three, from who knows when.
Funseeker that I am, I decided to give one a whirl and see what happens. Not bad. I didn’t have high hopes but not bad.
Though the base is oolong, I am not feeling the oolong. Mind you, keep in mind that I had been drinking a rather dynamic oolong earlier. This one tastes like more of a rooibos-like stable brown base with a bit of mixed light berry frou-frou on top of the sip with the slightest bit of ginger trailing behind. Sweet, but certainly a reasonable type of sweet with no imitation flavour coming to the fore. A pleasant surprise.
Addendum—after getting through half or more of my cup, I started getting a sour, kind of fizzy, note. Around that time, I began feeling nauseous. Lowering my rating accordingly.
