Going through the first rounds of my newest order from the Necessiteas. After that going to do my best to sipdown what I have in my cupboard right now.
Tasting Note: The tea smells of banana and strawberries out of the bag. Right after completing my 5 min steep at 208F, the tea tasted mostly of rooibos and not much else. I checked out some steepster comments and saw that its best after cooling off a bit. I let it cool a bit until it was warm not hot and the banana’s creaminess really came out. There was a slight sweetness from the banana. I will say that i didn’t get much sweetness from the strawberry, only a tangy after taste which I didn’t care for. No detectable chocolate notes.
I think the slight banana and rooibos was nice but the strawberry tanginess (like eating a strawberry that isnt ripe or didnt develop enough sugars) wasn’t great. I don’t rhink I will repurchase but I will try some added sweetness or as a latte to see if it improves.
Flavors: Banana, Creamy, Rooibos, Tangy
