“Yumberry”, is the latest in the superfruit category! We’ve taken our beautiful White Monkey tea and blended it with the delicious yumberry flavor and assorted fruit pieces to give you a tea that is pale in the cup with a fruity, slightly tart taste.
This is a really beautiful tea. Fuzzy white tea leaves are tossed with chunks of assorted fruit – it looks delicious, sort of like a fruiTEA salad!
It is a really pleasant tasting tea. Having only tasted “yumberry” flavored teas and not the actual yumberry fruit, I can’t tell you that this tea does or does not taste like a yumberry. But what I can tell you is that it is YUMMY.
It is sweet with a pleasing tart note that hits the tongue in the aftertaste so that you’re left with that tangy sort of tingle in your mouth long after you’ve finished the sip. There is a definite berry flavor to this tea – very rich and deep in flavor. It reminds me a bit of a cranberry and a strawberry – the depth of flavor of the cranberry (and just a hint of its rather tart nature) and the sweetness of a strawberry.
The white tea is a nice base for this blend. It has a soft, vegetative quality to it that adds a fresh note to the fruity flavor. The white tea is gentle and sweet, but not overwhelmed by the flavor of the berry.
This tea is delicious served hot, but it may just be even better iced! It is so tasty and refreshing! And with the sweet-yet-tart fruity flavor, it is one that will be a sure hit with kids!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
