I could have sworn I wrote a note for this when I tried a hot cup of it a week or so ago… Anyways, I put the rest of the sample in a mason jar and stuck it in the fridge. I didn’t like the taste of it hot. It had a weird alkaline taste to it that I have experienced in some pineapple teas. It is much better cold steeped! The alkaline taste is still there, but is muted and subtle. The mandarin is very bright and dominating the sip and aftertaste with a creamsicle flavor. There is a little bite at the end of the sip that I don’t much care for, but the rest of the sip is great. The vanilla works well to soften the sharpness of the citrus and the other ingredients seems to give it some depth and low notes, making it really well rounded. I could see this working well with a little sweetener to fill out the fruity taste. Overall I’m pretty impressed!

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
