What’s REALLY interesting with Mountain Bliss Green Tea from Balcony Tea are the ingredients it contains.

Therefore, this tea is – your guessed it – VEGAN.
I really LOVE that Mountain Bliss Green Tea from Balcony Tea is a Mediterranean Inspired Teas and those are the teas that Balcony specializes in! All of the ingredients are extremely fresh and flavorful! The Chinese Green Tea is delicate and light. It’s NOT heavily floral or vegetal but still has a nice flavor. The Greek Mountain Tea is gently herbal. The Juniper Berry gives it a slight pine aroma and flavor. The Thyme contributes to the wildness and herbal notes for sure. The apple pieces and flavor kick it up a notch but don’t make it overly fruity…it’s ‘just enough’. The olive leaves and Calendula petals are more visual that anything but overall makes this a remarkable cuppa!
Mountain Bliss Green Tea from Balcony Tea offers wonderful notes of herbal, vegetal, fruit, sweet, and pine. The ingredient and flavor ratio works out perfectly. It all meshes well and not one ingredient over-powers the others. A lot of thought and love went into this cup and I think it would WOW friends and family. It would be a great tea to share with old (and new) friends, too!
Oh! I should also mention that Mountain Bliss Green Tea from Balcony Tea was noted “Great Taste 2015” by the World Tea Expo!
