I can agree with Lori’s tasting notes. This tea is very light in flavor, the smell of the dry leaf mix is heavenly very soft like a potpourri smell but not like yucky potpourri like a peach potpourri. Which makes since because the ingredients read green tea, passion fruit, bush peach and wild strawberry, pineapple bits and cornflower petals. It’s quite beautiful to look at. The taste is mildly astringent and while I do pick up on the fruit I think I mostly pick up on the peach and passionfruit I will have to try making this a few more times to see if I pick up on the pineapple which is what I really want to taste in here. Not bad wouldn’t buy the again but I don’t totally hate it. I LOVE the tin though:)

I think I liked this tea more than you did.. I didn’t feel like it tasted too astringent..However, it was very difficult to discern individual fruit flavors in this tea. They just meld together to to taste “tropical”.

New to the world of hot tea, being born and raised in Texas we typically only drink lipton black tea, sweetened and iced of course! I recently discovered the world of hot tea / flavored teas and am thoroughly enjoying my new little world of tea!
