Green tea blended with strawberry pieces, mango, pineapple, marigolds, and globe amaranth with strawberry and mango flavoring.
When I first opened this package, I had intended to only brew a cup of the tea to drink hot. I hadn’t expected it to smell so INCREDIBLE! As a result of the breath-taking aroma, I am now brewing enough to have for iced tea tomorrow afternoon.
This tea is appropriately named, it smells like a fruit smoothie. The flavor is ambrosial. Sweet, fruity, and with just enough tarty fruit taste to keep it interesting.
The green tea base is – surprisingly – not obscured by this fruity combination. It tastes fresh and light, like the air in a lush, green forest. It is not overly vegetal, though, but has enough grassy taste to remind you that this is a green tea and not a fruit punch that you’re drinking.
The strongest flavor that I’m tasting is the mango, followed by a lovely strawberry note. The pineapple is a little more in the background. The flavors are sweet and nectar-like, with a tingly tartness that sits on the tip of the tongue in the finish. This delicious, sweet-tart fruit flavor lingers long after the sip.
I like this served hot or iced – but my preference is iced. It is complete thirst-quenching refreshment.
For a special offer on this tea (and other amazing foodie products!), check Daily Gourmet. For a limited time, you can order Ovation Tea’s Summer Set of Teas for just $15. (That’s a 50% savings!) I recommend getting yourself some of this tea right away, while summer is still here … you’ll be glad you did!
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!
