Leaf Type: Green
Where to Buy: 52Teas
I know many of you think I am crazy; I’m confirming your suspicions with this week’s blend, which is TRULY and completely one-of-a-kind and definitely a limited edition blend. I could not recreate this if I tried. In varying and unknown proportions, this tea has all of the following blends mixed into it:
Apple ~ Apricot ~ Blackberry ~ Blueberry ~ Cranberry ~ Cherry ~ Ginger ~ Grapefruit ~ Key Lime ~ Lemon ~ Lime ~ Mango ~ Orange ~ Peach ~ Pineapple ~ Raspberry ~ Strawberry ~ Watermelon ~ Ginger, Peach and Lemongrass ~ Tangerine ~ Banana ~ Honey Lemon ~ Guava ~ Cran-Raspberry
There are fruit peels, dried fruit, freeze dried fruit, some ginger and some lemongrass mixed in it. It is spectacularly ridiculous. I’m not sure if you will taste each of the flavors in every cup or if every cup will be a little different, but it will definitely be interesting.
I brewed up a cup of this so that I can start writing about it… however, it disappeared from my cup before I could start writing! Yep… it’s that good. So, before I could start composing this review, I had to go and brew myself a second cup.
Wow! This is one seriously fruit-flavored tea. Because it’s got so many different flavors in there, it’s difficult to discern one from another – and I’m having a hard time trying to describe for you what I’m tasting right now. What I can say is that it’s absolutely delicious!
On Steepster, I think I described the flavor as a huge fruit salad composed of the largest assortment of fruit ever. Or something like that. But, I think a more accurate description would be a fruit smoothie blended with the largest assortment of fruit ever… and replacing the yogurt with a smooth, sweet green tea base!
And yes, I can taste the tea. It is made with a Chinese Sencha, and I can taste it’s rich, buttery flavor with just a hint of vegetation. Not grassy, and not even strongly vegetative… just a mere insinuation of lush green-ness to go with the sweet flavors of fruit.
This tea is fantastic hot, and equally as good iced too. I do recommend adding a little sweetener (I chose agave nectar) to it because it really brings the fruit flavors to life. A truly delicious and unusual tea delight!

Not sure why I want this… my stomach is saying “no!” while my head is saying “yes!”… it’s always the reverse. But, as you know, when it comes to tea, “YES!” always wins:)

I was too afraid to order this and try it, it sounded so busy
Oooh, another contest! Count me in…I’d love to try this one. (But I’m a little scared.)
Well, I don’t like cranberry (or cran-raspberry by default), mango, or guava but I still want to try it. If I don’t like it, I’m sure someone I know will.
1) Going to facebook fan right after I post this.
2) Link on facebook: done.
3) I don’t think my blog is the sort you want this advertised on. It’s not search accessible or anything.

Contact through twitter or facebook (Ozymandias Creed) please.
Count me in. I liked you on Facebook and if you need my mail, it’s on Gmail and the user part is my name DOT my surname.
Oh, this is too good to pass up! I was skeptical of this tea, but the reviews look wonderful!
I just tweeted about it for entry #2. Not sure how to link to a specific tweet, but it should be the most recent in my favorites: http://twitter.com/janefan/favorites
My order is on it’s way. Wish it would hurry. Would love to be sipping some now while relaxing after a very busy day. Postman, ride faster!
Ok, here’s a comment, and I got a twitter and a FB entry (wombatgirl for twitter, and Jennifer knows my facebook)
(and I’m having a fail on becoming a fan on FB – unless I already am.. as I said – I’m having a fail on it.)
It sounds weird, but everyone says it takes good. Would be interesing to try it.
Guess our email didn’t show up, email@example.com
Thank you for the contest. What a iteresting tea this would be to try I like fruity greens.
Oh noes, it looks like I just missed this one. (A bit behind on the Steepster forums. =) ) This is a tea I am interested in trying. Luckily, Frank seems to have quite a bit of it so as soon as I finish up some tea, it may be one of several yummy 52 Teas options to order. As always, love that your blog has free tea contests! And great reviews!
