Hey there Teacups! It’s time again for another Let’s Talk Tea post, This time around it features Dragon Fire a delicious green tea based blend from Ninja Brew Tea. Before I get into this post if you haven’t read my pervious Ninja Brew Tea review you can find that here. If you’ve read that post you know just how much I loved the first ninja brew tisane I tried, with that in mind I was expecting great things from this tea.
Ingredients: Green Tea, Cinnamon, Rose Petals, Natural Flavours.
You all know that not only do I love green tea but I have a new love for teas with rose in them. So when I opened the package that Ninja brew sent and saw this one I was so excited to try it, from the ingredients list alone I knew I was going to enjoy this to no end. The dry leaves are very cinnamon and rose heavy (not in a bad way) and surprisingly I also got a little hint of an earthy/vegetal note from the green tea. From the aroma alone you can tell that this tea has been blended well and the ingredients are perfectly balanced. The wet leaves were actually very different aroma wise the cinnamon mellowed out almost completely and let the floral and vegetal notes of the rose and green tea fully shine. Seriously if they could bottle that scent and turn it into a perfume that is all I would wear.
Taste wise the heavy cinnamon and rose notes from the aroma of the dry leaves really mellowed out and allowed the tea it’s self to shine through along side them which I was very happy about. As I said I love green tea and rose paired together and I have enough experience when it comes to tea to know that they go perfectly together, what I wasn’t expecting though was how perfectly the cinnamon complemented them both. The sweet cinnamon notes mostly showed themselves in the aftertaste though which finished off each mouthful nicely. Mouthfeel wise it was quite smooth but towards the end of each steep it did get a little drying, it was hardly noticeable though and didn’t really change how much I loved this blend. There is absolutely no bitterness to this tea and it’s naturally quite sweet so I wouldn’t suggest adding any sweetener to start with.
Overall Teacup Rating: 5/5
