Cold Brew Sipdown (1358)!
Thank you VariaTEA for the tea! There’s a lot going on in this ingredient list so I had no idea what to expect, but cracking open the sample bag it smelled really good – very tropical and sweet with guava and dragonfruit notes and a bit of lemongras!
Steeped up, I’m definitely finding it a little lighter that the dry aroma but still very flavourful and fun! It’s a real grab bag of mixed fruit notes, but leaning more tropical with the guava still coming through quite a bit along with notes of lemongrass and sweet apple. Definitely a little herby/grassy underneath those juicy and tangy tropical fruit notes, but not unpleasantly so. The finish is sort of cooling – it doesn’t taste of mint but it feels like mint. Can’t remember right now if there was actually mint in the blend, though…
Overall, I find this really interesting and distinct! I like it a lot more than I expected to.
