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.
