It just started raining outside (I do live in the Pacific Northwest, and it’s been known to rain here from time to time), and I thought that this would be a perfect time to try this Rain Drop tea from Kaleisia.
This tea is really tasty. The strawberry flavor is good and strong, with a sweet berry flavor with that tingly-tart aftertaste – just like the real thing! The orange notes accent the strawberry nicely, giving the cup a nice depth and contrast. The flowers here lend a very faint floral tone to the cup, I think that they are added more for appearances than for actual flavor, though … and with that in mind they do certainly make the dry leaf look very appealing.
The green tea tastes lightly buttery, just very slightly creamy, with a hint of vegetative taste that tastes a bit more grassy than vegetable-like. It is a very fresh sort of grass taste though, and I find that it lends itself well to the overall “fresh” taste of the cup. It tastes like springtime!
A very nice cuppa. This one tastes really good iced too!
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!
