My tastebuds have taken several sabbaticals lately. Now that they have decided to get back to work, I plan to drink tea and savor every sip, catching up on what I’ve missed!
This green tea is a breath of summer today on this dreary day. The description on their official site says there is a hint of tartness, but it isn’t at all sour or astringent like many green teas. In fact, this is a tea i could easily chug, even from a teacup. The light briskness just makes me want more.
The primary aroma and flavor is coconut, with the pineapple coming in at a close second. The added cream flavor makes this a super smooth and creamy cuppa, a nice foil for the green base.
I am drinking it hot, but it is amazing iced as well, with or without sugar. I always go without! Now I am going to pretend I am on a beach, basking in the sun with a little umbrella in my drink!
This is available without the tin for a lower price, but spend a few extra dollars sometime and treat yourself to Nina’s beautiful red tea tins. I have a row of them on my tea shelf and they are gorgeous. Their Marie Antoinette blend comes in an exquisite pink tin – so romantic. Pour Maman is a perfect gift for a new mother, a Mother’s Day gift, or just because. Grand Amour is truly one of my great loves among flavored black tea and is a fun to give for weddings or engagements.
But the important thing is that Nina’s knows how to do quality tea and well-balanced blending. Even if you see a dozen flavors listed in the tea, it won’t be a muddy mess. It will be a beautifully blended cup of tea that leaves you wondering how the French achieve this level of mastery just as they do in their finest parfums.
Here’s the scoop!
