2286 Tasting Notes
Meh. I purchased it to ice over the summer. I’m not a fan of the flavour either cold-brewed or hot-brewed. There is more lemongrass and hibiscus flavour than there is orange.
I won’t be repurchasing… in fact, I won’t even be finishing the box. I have too many other good teas to drink!
If you’re not careful, this tea turns extremely bitter. My preference is a 1 minute steep, and I like to put in tonnes of leaves and then pour it over ice for a delicious iced tea. Honey or sugar is a nice addition if you like your tea sweet.
Definitely tastes more of lemon oil, or zest, rather than juice.
I have the one with the flat filter in it, which means that for black teas the brewing time is the 4-5 hours it takes to drink my tea. I usually use it for herbal teas because of this, but if I want black tea for later (because it truly does keep your tea super hot), I’ll make it in another container then pour it into this mug.
Sad thing is I forgot milky tea in mine, and I can’t get the smell off the rubber seals. I think it’s time for another baking soda soak, and maybe a vinegar or bleach soak as well. :/
