I have tried quite a few Tea of Life teas at this point and I’ve enjoyed some better than others. All of the teas that I’ve tried have been either bagged teas or teas in sachets, and I’ve made mention of my dislike of tea bags/tea sachets. However, even though these teas have been bagged or in sachets, there have been several teas that have impressed me.
I don’t know if I’d call this Guava flavored Green Tea “impressive” but I like that the guava flavoring is strong and focused. It tastes like guava: sweet and juicy. And I like that I can also taste the green tea in this tea. It has a lightly grassy, slightly buttery taste that marries well with the guava notes.
The reason why I said I was unsure if I’d say that this was impressive is that I find that the guava flavoring might be a tad TOO strong. While I can taste the green tea notes (and the green tea flavors do develop as I continue to sip), I think that the guava obscures some of the green tea flavors. Not so much that I simply can’t taste the green tea, but I think I’d like the green tea notes to be a bit more prominent than they are.
Other than that, I find this tea to be enjoyable. It is sweet and fruity and it makes a fantastic iced tea.
