84

It’s been another one of those days where I end up spending the entire day by myself which I don’t mind most of the time. When I do get time to relax by myself I enjoy a cup of something fruity and today the weather has been quite bright for a change so the two will go hand in hand.

Thank you again to Pure Aroma Tea for this sample. I have been enjoying their teas so far but their fruit teas really stand out so I am looking forward to trying this blend.

Upon opening the packet my nostrils are filled with a wonderful tropical fruit tea punch that is both strong and sweet. It smells very fresh and juicy with the mango being the strongest smell but passion fruit not far behind giving a fairly equal smelling blend. Very tropical tutti frutti.

In appearance the green tea is rolled up into little balls that are both dark green and dark brown in colour. It looks like a cross between an Oolong and Gunpowder Green but the smell doesn’t match it’s dark colours.

Brewing one teaspoon of tea in an empty teabag. Once steeped the tea becomes orange in colour with a strong juicy mango scent.

A few sips in and I’m thinking “Wow this contains green tea?” because you wouldn’t know by taste alone. The mango is still slightly stronger than the passion fruit but it seems to be keeping it sweeter that way and juicier. It’s fresh and light too but with the right balance of flavours. The quicker it cools down the more I can start to taste the green tea and it has a slight astringency. I realize I haven’t mentioned the guava which is something that I love and it’s making itself more present once it starts to cool down. Guava has that unique sweet pulpy taste and this has that too in a small dose.

Yep another yummy fruit blend by Pure Aroma Tea and another tea to add to my list to try iced. Sipping this is like being on my own dessert island with me laying on warm sand with the breeze blowing at my warm skin…if only.

Profile

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
