26 Tasting Notes
Bizarre and kinda mediocre.
I assumed the medicinal value of the kombucha would be destroyed by the drying process, but I still really wanted to know what it would taste like. Alas, this tea is not the way to find out—the green tea/spearmint/passion fruit flavors take over.
I may try it as an ice tea or cold brewed.
Flavors: Passion Fruit, Plum, Spearmint
A robust Ceylon blend. Pleasant enough.
SST packed a lot into the mesh teabag, I would probably have measured a smaller dose if it were loose.
Happily, the flavor didn’t come out undrinkably strong. You can tell the tea is easy to oversteep, but the bite was muted and not too astringent.
I ordered a fig formosa tea with brunch at the inimitable Sonsie in Downtown Boston. They are now out of stock, and since Tealuxe, a fellow local business, is also out of stock of this rare tea, I imagine that they are where Sonsie found it. I instantly wanted to order some myself, it is uniquely delicious! Rich and lightly caffeinated, it would make a lovely afternoon tea.
Not my thing! I enjoy white tea in general, but the ginger and pear overwhelm it, and aren’t particularly sweet. Can’t seem to brew it in a way I enjoy without adding sugar. It sounds like such an alluring combination that guests are gradually taking it off my hands.
Flavors: Ginger, Pear, Vegetal
