Taster’s Review:

I am such a fan of green tea and green mate.  I love how the flavors mix.  What is fun with this mix is that there is also a bit of a tropical feel to it with the added strawberries and papaya. This tea had such a nice sweet aroma.

What I always seem to be confused by is what steeping parameters I should use.  Green tea and green mate have completely different steeping times.  To play it safe- I went with the green tea setting on the Breville One Touch because I wasn’t sure how forgiving the green tea would be if I went with the mate setting I typically use.  Poured the sample into the brewing basket and away I went.

My thoughts? I like this blend.  It isn’t overpowering and it is very subtle.  No one flavor gets in the way or pushes the other around.  The green tea has a nice buttery feel that really pairs well with the strawberry and the mate gives a slight roasted flavor that goes well with the papaya.  All in all, a nice brew subtle brew.  I would love to try this one on ice.  With ingredients like strawberry and papaya, I can see this being perfect for these last days of summer!

I am a late 30s something mom who loves her family, will be getting married to a wonderful guy and has 4 kids (2 mine-2 his). We have a beautiful life together and I wouldn’t change a thing.

Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun. I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn’t bumble the first infusion.

Besides SororiTea Sisters, I’m also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
