Our Kingston Cooler tea is an exotic taste of the Caribbean. Discover the hidden treasure of grapefruit and pepper hidden in this blend of green and black tea. It’s topped off with lemon grass, orange peel and carrot peel. Great served hot or cold.
When I went to the Eteaket website to learn more about this tea before writing about it, I was unable to locate this tea anywhere! I emailed them and I was very pleased to see how promptly and courteously they responded to me. They informed me that Kingston Cooler is one of their “secret” tea blends that they offer to their cafe customers.
I realize I’m blowing the lid off of their “secret” here, but, this tea is just too good to keep a secret! This tea has a lusciously sweet and fruity taste that I really like. The citrus flavors are so bright and sunny that this tea even manages to shed some sunshine into this rather dreary autumn day. Not that I dislike autumn – nothing could be further from the truth – but, I sometimes find myself missing the sunshine too.
But I don’t miss the sun quite so much as I sip this tea! The flavor is so clean and crisp. The light-bodied green tea is the perfect base for the grapefruit, orange and lemon flavors here. It tastes fresh and has a bit of vegetative flavor, no bitterness and very little astringency.
This tea also has a very intriguing peppery note that emerges by about mid-cup. It adds a unique dimension of flavor and interesting contrast to the sweetness of the citrus fruit.
This tea is excellent as a hot tea, but as the name of the tea implies, this tea is great chilled too. Very refreshing with just the right of sweetness. It is juicy without tasting like an overly sweet soft drink. YUM!
Hopefully Eteaket will decide to start offering this tea online. In the meantime, if you happen to be in Edinburgh… I recommend you stop by their boutique and try this tea!
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!
