Chilled: Didn’t try
Little Yellow Teapot here. My humans bought this tea awhile back for this taste test. It’s taken them some time to get around to it. Then, they discovered it contains peppermint, so wifey couldn’t have any. Hubby had to do it all, allergies notwithstanding.
On with the review by hubby:
Besides Hyson and Dragonwell green teas, the ingredients list on the box includes orange peel, peppermint leaf, jasmine flowers, lemon verbena, marigold flowers, blue malva flowers, and pineapple flavor. Unfortunately, the peppermint overwhelms the other flavors and aromas, so why bother? There also isn’t anything “tropical” about this tea. It makes more sense to present the fine green teas (Hyson and Dragonwell) on their own and let their grassy flavor come forward.
That observation aside, I have to say that this tea is pleasant on the tongue and a great after-meal sipping tea, free of bitter and harsh elements. The citrus mixing with the mint comes through somewhat. For me the sachet is better than most. It’s large enough to let the tea, flowers and fruits interact with the water. Wifey still thinks it’s a waste, though. She’d rather just cut open the nylon bag and toss the contents loose into the cup or teapot.
We didn’t give it a try chilled but think that it has potential as a tasty choice.
