Made this one as an iced tea yesterday, at work.
I don’t know why but the entire time I was drinking this one I was filled with a sense of flavour Deja Vu – but I still can’t place exactly what tea it was reminding me of which is , the frustrating part. Honestly though? I thought this was pretty average. It was smooth enough but the two strongest flavours were the rooibos base itself which was very woody and a kind of sub par coconut note. The coconut did taste decently fresh though, but it also reminded me a little bit of my coconut body scrub which is… eh?
The pear/berry/other fruit notes were just so muddled and mild though comparatively! I really, really wish the pear had been more pronounced because I think a pear and coconut combination could have been really lovely but more than anything else I thought this was kind of apple-y tasting, with hints of the kiwi and a very generic/muddled tropical fruit flavour. Nothing even remotely pear like, and that was all kinds of disappointing. If you promise me pear, I fucking want pear.
But yeah – overall it was just mediocre. Drinkable, but nothing exciting at all. I think it falls prey to their just being too many ingredients for it to create any kind of clear, concise flavour profile.
