Orange & Papaya from Tea-Shirt Teas. . . .

I’ve been in a green tea mood lately, tasting all the flavors and mix-ins that go best with those lighter tea leaves.  It was the perfect day to try Orange and Papaya from Tea Shirt Teas. I was immediately impressed by the delicious scent of the tea in the dry leaf.  It was amazingly fruity, and hard to resist smelling the dry leaves in my mug while I waited for the water to boil.  The leaves themselves are all dressed up for the occasion, with big chunks of dried papaya and orange slices mixed in among the green tea.

Strawberry & Lychee from Tea Shirt

This is my first tea from Tea Shirt and I’m pretty excited that it’s Strawberry & Lychee from Tea Shirt. But first let me tell you my first encounter with FRESH Lychee Fruit… I used to work at a grocery store 20-some years ago and I always liked trying the exotic fruits that come in.  One day we received some Lychee and I was super excited to try it!  I peeled off the reddish spiky skin/shell and sucked out the fruit that was a slimy white.  It almost looked like a small white onion.  It smelled and tasted like paint thinner!
