So, after a first failure to find fruitiness in a morning cup of tea, I’m turning to South Sea Magic from Joy’s Teaspoon. I only purchased the sample size of this one, but that little tin holds so much promise in its scent. It smells rich, like the black tea base it has, but also fruity and fresh and very tropical. (All good things in my quest!)
Mmm… still smells tropical! I’m getting excited that this tea may actually deliver a fruity taste, too. So, without further hesitation, I sip and it really is fruity! It’s truly a shared experience with neither the fruitiness (think mango, possibly papaya) nor the black tea overpowering the other. It’s very good. So good that I will most likely order a larger size of this and I’m not really a black tea kind of person.
