Kitchen Sink Green Tea from 52Teas & A NEW CONTEST!


Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Green

Where to Buy:  52Teas

Company Description:

I know many of you think I am crazy; I’m confirming your suspicions with this week’s blend, which is TRULY and completely one-of-a-kind and definitely a limited edition blend. I could not recreate this if I tried. In varying and unknown proportions, this tea has all of the following blends mixed into it:

Apple ~ Apricot ~ Blackberry ~ Blueberry ~ Cranberry ~ Cherry ~ Ginger ~ Grapefruit ~ Key Lime ~ Lemon ~ Lime ~ Mango ~ Orange ~ Peach ~ Pineapple ~ Raspberry ~ Strawberry ~ Watermelon ~ Ginger, Peach and Lemongrass ~ Tangerine ~ Banana ~ Honey Lemon ~ Guava ~ Cran-Raspberry

There are fruit peels, dried fruit, freeze dried fruit, some ginger and some lemongrass mixed in it. It is spectacularly ridiculous. I’m not sure if you will taste each of the flavors in every cup or if every cup will be a little different, but it will definitely be interesting.

Taster’s Review:

I brewed up a cup of this so that I can start writing about it… however, it disappeared from my cup before I could start writing!  Yep… it’s that good.  So, before I could start composing this review, I had to go and brew myself a second cup.

Wow!  This is one seriously fruit-flavored tea.  Because it’s got so many different flavors in there, it’s difficult to discern one from another – and I’m having a hard time trying to describe for you what I’m tasting right now.  What I can say is that it’s absolutely delicious!

On Steepster, I think I described the flavor as a huge fruit salad composed of the largest assortment of fruit ever.  Or something like that.  But, I think a  more accurate description would be a fruit smoothie blended with the largest assortment of fruit ever… and replacing the yogurt with a smooth, sweet green tea base!

And yes, I can taste the tea.  It is made with a Chinese Sencha, and  I can taste it’s rich, buttery flavor with just a hint of vegetation.  Not grassy, and not even strongly vegetative… just a mere insinuation of lush green-ness to go with the sweet flavors of fruit.

This tea is fantastic hot, and equally as good iced too.  I do recommend adding a little sweetener (I chose agave nectar) to it because it really brings the fruit flavors to life.  A truly delicious and unusual tea delight!

    Not sure why I want this… my stomach is saying “no!” while my head is saying “yes!”… it’s always the reverse. But, as you know, when it comes to tea, “YES!” always wins:)

    Oooh, another contest! Count me in…I’d love to try this one. (But I’m a little scared.)

  15. August 4th, 2010 at 6:19 am       michelequake Says:

    Well, I don’t like cranberry (or cran-raspberry by default), mango, or guava but I still want to try it. If I don’t like it, I’m sure someone I know will.

    1) Going to facebook fan right after I post this.
    2) Link on facebook: done.
    3) I don’t think my blog is the sort you want this advertised on. It’s not search accessible or anything.
    4) Twitter:

    Contact through twitter or facebook (Ozymandias Creed) please.

    Thank you for the contest. What a iteresting tea this would be to try I like fruity greens.

    Oh noes, it looks like I just missed this one. (A bit behind on the Steepster forums. =) ) This is a tea I am interested in trying. Luckily, Frank seems to have quite a bit of it so as soon as I finish up some tea, it may be one of several yummy 52 Teas options to order. As always, love that your blog has free tea contests! And great reviews!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
