Cute! I loved the colour of this tea – vibrant green! Total kiwi!
We just got a to go cup with a little bit of agave – but I found it quite sweet!
I didn’t like it enough to take some home with me, but honestly that’s because I spent more money than I thought I would stocking up on cupboard staples – so just no room for this one right now.

I’m not the biggest kiwi lover either – I think the tea lacked a tartness that I associate with kiwis. I rarely eat a ripe kiwi I guess, they’re always sour to me haha!

Does anyone else eat the outside of the kiwi too? I can’t stand peach fuzz, but I can handle kiwi fuzz. Maybe it’s weird – I learned it from my uber Scottish stepdad so maybe it’s a Scotland thing – I dunno! ;)

Anyways, the tea was alright, didn’t blow me out of the water, but sweet and a nice iced green tea!

I’ve heard of eating the kiwi skin before, but typically never did as I swear it accumulated cat hair like velcro. I no longer live with a cat, but still feel like I wouldn’t be able to get it clean enough to eat. I find it more bothersome than peach skin though (which I do eat)!

I lived by Orland California (my parents retired in the town of Paradise no kidding) where they grow kiwi and nobody eats skin! The fruit was never bitter or tart either. Trouble with transported fruit is they pick it underripe.

Bonnie

Oh…if ripe people cut in half and scooped out like a hard boiled egg and didn’t peel. A whole bag cost a dollar and you could get a bag of doubles that looked like green boobs!

mm sounds amazing! The best fruit can be found right where it’s grown, that’s for sure. I miss the okanagan… peaches and apricots drool.

Bonnie, that’s how I eat it!!
Oh man I have to try this tea. I was hoping it’d go on sample but it hasn’t when I was around… (for some reason the link on their website showing what’s on sample never works for me)

Ian

I’m allergic to kiwi…. It really stinks because I love it a LOT

Bonnie

I’m allergic to potatos so no french fries! Which would you rather have …hum?
(I can have yam fries) …and no…catsup (allergic to tomatoes) …but mayo and mustard ok.
Ain’t life grand!

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
