Review of Blue Lagoon (Nr. 939)

8 of 103 of 53 of 575 of 100

Half-litre pot at home, made from an impressive mixture of bits of caramelised pineapple, thin dried coconut slices, some indigo dried petals, and God knows what else, but whatever it all is, it emits a psychedelic and seductively sweet aroma. Pours clear nearly colourless with extremely pale shades of bleached blue (the second cup is sickly neon turquoise against white china); no sediment. Intensive aroma of coconut, with hints of aniseed and very mild touches of pineapple. Sweetish flavour of coconut and some other tropical fruit, with floral notes and touches of aniseed and other spice, perhaps ginger. Slightly astringent palate, with sweet, caramelised and floral notes. Well, I suppose you can make tea from anything, so why not try such a blend? Not a pinch of actual tea plant in it but it tastes, well, like a decent party on a tropical beach. And it looks like something that must have triggered that party. Definitely not bad, just quite bizarre and a little pricey for a non-tea (ca. 60 DKK per 100 g). For the first time in my career as a tea enthusiast, I have no clue at all as to what I am drinking. This particular tea is absent from the tea company's register, but I swear I bought it in my local outlet. Legally.
