I picked up a cup of this iced, but found is very sour. With sweetener it was a little better, but still too sour for me.

Flavourwise, it wasn’t very Canadian. I found it rather tropical, actually. The coconut was a bit toasty, creamy. The rhubarb came through strong and tart. Lots of hibiscus, some pineapple. I didn’t taste the white tea, but it probably evened out the flavour a bit.As much as I liked the rhubarb/coconut combination, I dislike how sour this blend is.

Flavors: Coconut, Creamy, Hibiscus, Pineapple, Rhubarb, Sour, Tart, Toasty, Tropical

165 °F / 73 °C 5 min, 0 sec 17 OZ / 500 ML

I agree that its flavour profile has very little to do with Canada. Like yeah, I get that they were focusing more on the colours of the ingredients but still!

Canadian tea should have MAPLE! if you don’t then don’t even try to pass it off as Canadian. Rhubarb is always yummy though but it usually goes with strawberry or blueberry. What’s wrong with these tea makers! (my rant is now over) (Proud Canadian)

Fjellrev

Haha I agree. I could see maple, marshmallow, and rhubarb going well together.

Autistic Goblin

oh that does sound good. I might add some vanilla and cinnamon too.. almost like a maple vanilla pie.

Hell yeah! Now THERE’s a Canada-themed tea.

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
