Taster’s Review:

Even though I’m not much of a drinker of alcohol, I’ve quite enjoyed many of the classic cocktail flavored teas – like this one.

The Sencha base tastes refreshingly light and crisp.  This is a very smooth tasting Sencha.  There is not a strong grassy or vegetal taste to this one.  It is not bitter, but there is a little bit of astringency toward the tail end of the sip.  The astringency is dry and clears the palate nicely so that I can enjoy the sweet aftertaste of pineapple and coconut.

Even though the tea base is remarkably light, the flavors are still well-defined.  The pineapple is sweet and tangy and the coconut is creamy.  There is even a hint of rum to this cup.  The flavors are very unified… I not tasting one particular note trying to overwhelm the others.  In each sip, I can taste the pineapple, the coconut and the rum, as well as the bright flavor of the Sencha tea.  The taste is delicate and very refreshing.

I like this one hot, but, I think its even better iced!

Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

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!
