Taster’s Review:

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!


Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

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!
