I have to say that I’m very impressed with this tea. I really am not sure what I expected – perhaps just a basic tea with some citrus-y notes. But, this exceeded any expectations I may have had. It really is deliciously refreshing!
My first few sips of the hot tea were very enjoyable – smooth, mellow black tea with lovely lime notes and a hint of pineapple in the background. But, those first few sips told me that this was a tea that should be served iced! So, I allowed it to cool, and then took a taste! YUM!
The Ceylon base is not extraordinarily strong, but it’s not supposed to be, either. It offers a delicious flavor, though, and it has that light, brisk taste that works so well with the tangy lime notes which are tart but not to the point of causing me to pucker after taking a sip. (Bonus points to Fusion for that!) And my favorite part might just be the pineapple in this, it adds a distinct sweetness and flavor that melds so wonderfully with the flavor of the lime.
Overall, it’s very refreshing and tastes very bright and has its own invigorating quality to it. A nice tea to enjoy on these long, hot afternoons!
