If I had smelled this tea in the store, I never would have bought it. As it is, after ordering it online it has sat in my cupboard for well over a month (an extreme rarity) due to smelling more like oregano than kiwi. Maybe I do not have such a refined nose or tea smelling palate but I know what I like. I must have felt “adventuresome” this morning and made a mug. It smelled great steeping and I knew I would like it right away (and silently kicked myself for not trying it earlier :)
There definitely isn’t a strong green taste but that isn’t a bad thing, just a taste preference. Since I steeped/drank it from my french press style mug I expected it to get bitter in the last little bit but it didn’t. A very surprising cup of tea but I enjoyed it throughly. I am not sure I will buy it regularly but maybe in the summer time I would get some to make ice teas with (even though I found it tasty hot). I may brew it longer next time for a stronger taste, there is room for experimenting. I don’t know if I tasted it without knowing the name that I would think “oh, that’s kiwi tea” but I do see how the flavours work together kind of like the sweet/tartness of a kiwi.
I’d recommend it to anyone who likes fruity teas, lighter green teas or if you were looking to try something different. And will tell my sister about it later, I am sure she would enjoy.
I am pretty excited to have found steepster. Its funny this tea, one I have put off for so long, would be my first taste note or posting at all on this site. Thanks for reading! :)

Thank you so much for this!! I was on the fence about trying this tea because of the ‘oregano’ odour but your post is making me adventurous :)
