About this Iced Tea Series:
After the success of our first Iced tea series, we’re going for round two. This time, all of the teas are tropical fruit flavors! We’ve also increased the amount of tea in each package to make sure you get a good solid gallon of iced tea out of each pack.
Here are FIVE unique iced tea blends we’ve created from high quality Nilgiri CTC teas. These are uber fine teas, so they are not as pretty as our whole leaf teas, but they steep up a bold, rich, flavorful iced tea.
This is awesomely delicious! This just might be my favorite tea from this iced tea series yet (although I really loved the kiwi too, and I still have 2 others to try).
What makes this particular blend so spectacular is the way that the bold black tea melds seamlessly with the coconut flavor. It’s as though these two flavors were made for each other.
The coconut flavor is sweet, a little creamy and rich. It has that “oily” coconut quality to it. The black tea is a strong black tea. It is not bitter (although I wouldn’t recommend over-steeping it), and there is a moderate astringency that cleanses the palate.
A delicious, refreshing, lip-smacking way to quench your thirst. If you like coconut, you’re going to love this iced 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!
