Chinese Sencha Green Tea, marigold petals, cornflower petals, fruit pieces, flavor.
This is a delicious tropical tea. It is flavored lightly so the green tea is the primary focus of this cup, and that’s the way it should be.
The green tea is a Chinese Sencha and it is light and buttery. The creaminess from the butter taste lends itself well to a smooth, silky mouthfeel that lingers well into the aftertaste. It is not astringent. It has a mild sweetness to it that melds well with the fruit flavors.
The description does not go in to detail about the tropical flavors that are used in this blend, but, I can detect a pineapple note. It is very much a seamless fruit flavor – like a tropical superfruit. I hesitate to call it “tropical punch” because this tea is in no way like punch. This is green tea gently flavored with a tropical essence. However, you know how when you drink tropical punch, it is difficult to discern which fruits are in there? In that way, this tea is similar. The aftertaste is sweet with a hint of tartness that tickles the tip of the tongue.
This is nice served hot, but it is spectacular served iced! A delightful summertime refreshment!
