What a name, but does it live up to the hype?

I brewed it on the low side, just to be safe, but the problem with pairing a green tea + fruity pieces is the fruit really needs a hot + long steep to really bring out their flavours, while the delicate green tea requires a short + 80°C steep. This poses a problem, either you get flavourful fruity bitter tea or weak fruity green tea. The latter is what I ended up with… not horrible, not astounding, just kind of alright.

Which is disappointing because I was really excited there was finally a kiwi tea in the DAVIDsTEA roster.

I tried this today at DT and agree. Too bad, since it smells so lovely.

So lovely! Too bad the smell doesn’t match the flavour… sigh.

Hi there! I am a big fan of tea in it’s many forms: white, green, black, red, herbal, etc. Since the removal of my gallbladder I am finding I sway more towards straight teas, such as black or oolong, and dessert-like teas.

I hope you find my reviews helpful…
