Plan Tea Freshly Brewed From Whole Tea Leaves
Tea Drinks! According to Plan Tea, “Teas that taste like tea! Our teas are lightly infused with organic ingredients, carefully selected to subtly complement the natural flavor of the tea leaves, not overpower them. That’s right – we infuse, we don’t flavor. This means we steep our tea leaves with the other ingredients. Meanwhile the other guys just add something called “natural (or worse – artificial!) flavoring.” Who knows what that is?”
There’s a fresh ginger aroma coming out from the bottle with subtle lemon scent when you open it for the first time. The color of this Plan Tea drink looked like overly watered hot chocolate drink. The texture was same as other brewed tea drinks as well. As for the taste, the first sip tasted flat. After few more sips, you could tell that there’s a subtle sweet taste at the end after you swallow down the sip and the other recognizable taste was the ginger flavor. There was no sign of lemon flavor what so ever even after chugging down half bottle of the drink and the ginger spicy taste becomes stronger. When your mouth processes the sip, you first hit by the spicy taste from ginger and then finish with the smooth tea flavor. There’s no aftertaste for this Plan Tea. It’s easy, smooth and pleasant to drink.
Upon opening the bottle, there’s a light fresh mint aroma coming out from the bottle. The color of this flavor was the same as the previous flavor and it’s the same for the texture as well. As for the taste, the first sip you could sense the lightly sweet taste with tea flavor. After couple more sips, you could sense the subtle mint flavor and it was difficult to detect. The mint flavor wasn’t that strong compares to the previous lemon ginger flavor. However, the mint flavor was balanced very well with the black tea and makes it pleasant to drink. It’s smooth and very easy to drink.
The ingredients for Plan Tea -White Tea Infused with Lemon and Ginger include: Purified Water (Infused with organic & fair trade certified Darjeeling white Tea leaves, Organic ginger root, and organic lemon peel), organic wildflower honey and citric Acid.
The ingredients for Plan Tea- Black Tea Infused with Mint include: Purified Water (Infused with organic & fair trade certified Darjeeling black tea leaves, Organic spearmint), organic wildflower honey and citric Acid.
Overall, I like the tastes of Plan tea because they are not very strong flavored tea drinks. It’s for those who like less flavored tea drinks. If I have to choose one out the two flavors, I would choose the Mint flavor because it’s not spicy.
