Taster’s Review:

This is so yummy!

When I first saw the leaves in the package, I thought that this might be a white tea, as the leaves look soft and fluffy like a silver needle tea.  And the flavor is light and crisp … but not quite as delicate as a white tea.  This definitely has that vegetative taste that one experiences from green tea.

And that is a good thing, in my opinion, because I love how the vegetal notes marry with the flavors of peach and passion fruit.  I’m sure that these flavors would have been excellent with a silver needle tea as well, but, I’m loving this just the way it is.

The green tea has adds a freshness and a light sweetness to the cup, accenting the sweetness of the fruit.  The passion fruit and peach notes work very well together, and they bring a deliciously juicy flavor to this.

Since it has been so cold lately (we are just starting to get some hints at warm weather … it was actually SUNNY today!), I chose to drink this hot – and it was tasty – but I think it would be even more fabulous iced!

Yet another winner in the impressive collection of teas from Tea Licious!
