Unfortunately, I think this was another miss for me with Teeccino.
To be fair, when I saw Passionfruit Peach as a coffee alternative option I kind of knew it was gonna be weird and probably not my vibe, but the Mango Lemon Balm was shockingly nice so I think I held onto a bit of hope I probably shouldn’t have. I figured it would probably be better cold, as if I was getting some kind of Starbucks style flavoured iced coffee, so I made this iced and then added in some milk as well.
It was… rough. I don’t actually get a lot of passionfruit in flavour, but the peach is STRONG and it’s a very floral kind of sweet peach flavour that felts really at odds with the deeply roasty and mineral tasting base. Plus, I think there’s rooibos in this blend!? Which is the first one I’ve tasted yet that has appeared to include rooibos and I thought that was really strange because it added this very nutty, woody and honey-like taste that probably would have complimented the roast but as a trifecta of roast, fruit, and nuts it was not clicking.
I don’t know. There’s just something about these fruitier flavours that is a hard swing in the wrong direction for me…
