When I came across this tea on the Ovation Teas website, I knew I wanted to try it. The flavor combination is one that I don’t see often, but I thought it would make a really refreshing and delicious iced tea. I wasn’t wrong!
The flavors are a bit subtle when its served hot, but allow it to cool for a while and you’ll notice the flavors really come to life. When it’s chilled, the flavors are at their best!
The pineapple and blueberry are pretty well-balanced. The pineapple is present throughout the entire sip, from start to finish and lingering well into the aftertaste, although it is somewhat more subtle than the burst of blueberry flavor that hits the palate just after the start, but then begins to subside and disappear by the end of the sip.
The green tea is sweet and flavorful, with hints of vegetation and a crisp, fresh taste that adds a very pleasant flavor to the overall tea. This tea is sweet and tart, but not too tart. It doesn’t need sweetening, but, a little bit of sugar won’t hurt it (but don’t go overboard!) This is a tea I think the whole family will enjoy!
