the health benefits of green tea combine with a soft fruit flavor for an instant classic
This tea is another example of a tea I ordered some time ago, stashed away in one of my canisters, and forgot all about it until I recently went through my stash. I am glad to report though that it has not lost its flavor! It tastes just as fresh as fresh can taste!
Bright, crisp green tea flavor with a vegetative note … but not overly grassy. It is not bitter and while there is a little bit of astringency, it does not interfere at all with the enjoyment of this tea.
The apricot flavor is sweet and luscious, tasting very much like the soft, juicy flesh of a sun-ripened apricot … but it isn’t overly sweet or nectar-y. This is a tea with fruit flavor, not a fruity beverage with a hint of tea.
There is also a floral tone to this tea that is slightly sharp … sunflower! It is a very distinct flavor, and no other flower petal brews to taste quite like a sunflower. It is delicate, but it’s there.
As summer draws to a close here in the Pacific Northwest, this tea is a delightful representation of the sweetness that the summer offers. This is awesome hot or iced!
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!
