It’s not always easy to make healthy choices. Not when there are so many delicious things just waiting to be tasted. But with this fruity, berry-packed oolong, we’ve created the impossible: a super-healthy tea that also happens to taste amazing. First we took big pieces of strawberries, raspberries and currants – a.k.a. the original Super Fruits. Then we added a spicy-soothing hint of ginger root. Finally, we laced it with kombucha powder, an enzyme-packed detoxifier that in-the-know yogis have been sipping since the ‘60s. Groovy, man.

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.
How can such a delicious tea go so wrong?
Everything in this tea I like conceptually. Even kombucha.
However, all the components are so disparate, that it taste’s like a mess.
The most prominent flavors are over ripe strawberry, ginger and stinky kombucha. The result is undrinkable (hot or iced).
There are not many cups of tea I will dump out. This is the 3rd time i have done so (attempted 3 different brewing conditions)
Flavors: Ginger, Strawberry
Day #2 of tea!
I have had this one exactly once before today, haha. I picked this one because of the strawberry, though there’s quite a lot going on with the taste. Possibly due to the kombucha, which I’m not a huge fan of. I do like the berry taste, but it got weird as it cooled, so if I were to get this one again, I have to remember to keep it hot.
I’m not really sure how I feel about this. I enjoy the aftertaste, predominantly raspberries and blueberries, but I don’t actually enjoy it when drinking it; it’s a little overly sweet and artificial. Certainly wouldn’t buy again and I’m in no rush to finish the cup I have now. Sad, as I was actually looking forward to trying this one.
Flavors: Artificial, Blueberry, Raspberry, Sweet
