85g of Green loose/leaf tea with natural apple, cherry, cornflower, mango and passionfruit flavours.
Packed into a foil resealable bag to preserve freshness.
I brought this pack to work with me as several of my friends enjoy green tea, especially if it is flavoured with other goodies, so I figured they would like to try it. It was an unqualified success. I made it reasonably weak as none of them like a strong brew, and served it for morning tea with some plain biscuits. It went down a treat - everyone loved it so much that I had to make a second brew.
The comments on the aroma were interesting. I had several people ask if it contained flowers as they thought they could detect a floral bouquet when they sniffed the pack contents, but once the boiling water had been added, they revised their opinion. I knew what was in it of course because I had read the label, but I wanted to see their reactions before I told them. Interestingly, once they tasted the product as opposed to just sniffing it, they recognised the peach and passionfruit flavours straight away.
We were all intrigued by the appearance of the leaves after the brew had been sitting for a little while. The reconstituted leaves were huge and looked almost good enough to eat. In fact, I did try one just to see what would happen, but the flavour had already leached out into the liquid so there was not enough left for me to judge.
Everyone loved the pack with its resealable inner. Two of them had already tried another drink in the range and said they preferred the taste of this one but they could not decide which packet was the more attractive as they liked both of them. However, they were unanimous about the way the packet could be resealed as this saves the effort of decanting the tea into another container so it does not lose its strength.
Next day I made another brew (as promised!) but this time I made it early and let it go cold before serving it. This was an interesting variation: I think I liked the cold version even better than the hot drink. I had brought some limes and tangelos from home and sliced them finely before adding them to the jug with some ice cubes, and that was a clear winner. Even when I told them the price nobody was fazed: they all thought it was worth paying that kind of money to get a quality drink, and because you did not need much it would go a long way.
Will I buy it again? Absolutely, and I think my fellow tasters will be looking out for it too when they do their shopping for the holiday. There are not many times that I try out a review product on a group of people who give it the unanimous thumbs up, but this was one of those occasions.
