“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!
