The great thing about sets of tea is you get to experience teas you normally may not! Fruit and herbal teas generally are not my go-to picks. However, what is not to love about these cute butterfly sugar confettis!
Description: “A juicy, refreshing blend of raspberry, lime and apple.”
Review: I loved how these look – the little butterflies really made this blend pop. The smell from the dry and wet blend was very strong lime and I only faintly was able to detect the raspberries and hibiscus. The liquor was a lovely surprise: it was a pink colour and had a nutty smell. For anyone who is familiar with DAVIDsTEA’ Forever Nuts, this is what the liquor reminded me of!
As expected, the liquor had a very strong and predominate lime smell with a hint of sweet and tartness. However, I kept tasting a bitterness during the tail end. I read CitizenTea’s website, and it mentioned that this could be sweetened and iced, which I think would be a better way to enjoy this blend. I find blends that lean more towards being iced tend to be a bit overly sweet and personally not for me (2.5/5 rating).
