This tea smells like candy…a little like jolly ranchers and a lot like that sour gel you can buy in little squeeze tubes. Just opening the bag was enough to make my mouth water, so I had to brew up a cup to accompany my creature-smashing evening in Torchlight II.
The pungently fruity scent persists after brewing…and the tea lives up to the smell! The black base is relatively quiet, but the combination of freeze dried fruit and flavourings results in a surprisingly natural tasting cup. I’m primarily getting raspberry (and a little watermelon, strangely enough) in addition to a bunch of fruits my palate isn’t sufficiently well-developed enough to discern.
I think it might be a little better cold, but for today’s purposes a nice hot cup was exactly what I needed.
