Chinese Sencha Green Tea, marigold petals, cornflower petals, fruit pieces, flavor.
This is a delicious tropical tea. It is flavored lightly so the green tea is the primary focus of this cup, and that’s the way it should be.
The green tea is a Chinese Sencha and it is light and buttery. The creaminess from the butter taste lends itself well to a smooth, silky mouthfeel that lingers well into the aftertaste. It is not astringent. It has a mild sweetness to it that melds well with the fruit flavors.
The description does not go in to detail about the tropical flavors that are used in this blend, but, I can detect a pineapple note. It is very much a seamless fruit flavor – like a tropical superfruit. I hesitate to call it “tropical punch” because this tea is in no way like punch. This is green tea gently flavored with a tropical essence. However, you know how when you drink tropical punch, it is difficult to discern which fruits are in there? In that way, this tea is similar. The aftertaste is sweet with a hint of tartness that tickles the tip of the tongue.
This is nice served hot, but it is spectacular served iced! A delightful summertime refreshment!
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!
