Everyone needs a Caribbean Holiday from time-to-time and after the winter we had in the eastern snowbelt of the U.S. this tisane was perfect timing when I first started sipping on it – the end of March!
This is another new release from Souvia!
Normally I don’t usually like fruity herbally tisanes because they are too sweet or fruity or tart or full of hibiscus BUT…this is nice!
This is a TREAT! It tastes like liquid candy! This doesn’t have hibiscus in it! YAY!
The purple/red you may see is beet root. Sure…it’s tarty and fruity but the sugary and candied fruits help counteract that. I’m think this would be best iced but it’s pretty tasty hot today, too!
Yup! The key is the candied and granulates ingredients! And I’m not going to lie…I grabbed one of the lemon granulates and gnawed on it while the rest infused!
If you are looking for a fruity tisane without hibiscus…this is a WINNER! If you are looking for a quick escape from daily hustle-bustle…give this a whirl…it brings that HAPPY PLACE to YOU!

I want to start this post off by saying I HATE WINTER. Unfortunately for me…I live in the snow belt. Sigh. Yes, I know…it’s ONLY the beginning of December but I am ALREADY sick of winter! I don’t like being cold and I hate snow!
So, when I received this SUMMER SUNRISE Flavored Black Tea from Joy’s Teaspoon – I was HAPPY for more than one reason!
I was also excited because I found out that Joy’s Teaspoon is from Las Vegas! I LOVE VEGAS! I have been there 3 times so far! PLUS last year The World Tea Expo was in Vegas. I heard for 2011 the World Tea Expo will be held in Las Vegas yet again! I haven’t been to the World Tea Expo but I would LOVE to go someday! In the meantime…I will enjoy one of Las Vegas’s Tea Companies here in my home!
Anyhow…on to this specific tea from Joy’s Teaspoon…
I guess I can make the connection with the name of this because it DOES remind me of a Summer field or meadow! The pretty aroma and feeling it gives you right off the bat!
The taste is of black tea, basil, and a hint of lemony goodness…but only a hint. So if you are afraid of lemon – you might like this because it is subtle. If you are worried about the Basil – don’t be! It adds to the over all cup but isn’t over powering.
This is nice…if you get the chance…try it!
