Green tea is not my favorite generally, but I’m trying really hard to find ways to like it. I was attracted to this tea initially because it is very pretty with the blue cornflowers and rose petals (?). The added “tropical fruit flavors” is what sold me. The dry leaves are very broken in my tin, hence messy to clean out of my brewer.

I’m trying to use this up because its using a precious tin that could be used to house a tea that I like more. I used A LOT of leaf for a bolder taste iced tea, yet there’s still some in the tin. sigh Paradise Green has been in my cupboard for more than a year – ridiculous because of the copious amount of tea I have in any given day.

This isn’t a tea that I like hot, so that already limits how often I drink it. Now that I live in an area that actually gets four distinct seasons, I’m really hoping that I’ll drink this more – in the summer.

I have found a lot of Lupicia’s flavored green teas work well when you cold brew them, you should try it!

Luckily, I still have enough to do so – thanks for the suggestion! :)

Bio

I’m a native Midwesterner (Iowa, specifically) who was happily uprooted to California twice. SoCal is what I consider home, even though I currently don’t live there. I hope to return home again!

Tea has really come to fill the void of my current displacement. My husband & I (with our two tiny weenies) moved to Indiana hardly knowing a soul. It’s been a tougher transition for me than I’d thought it would be. I have amassed a cupboard of teas to keep me company until I feel more familiar in my newer surroundings.

I will refrain from giving numerical values to teas because I am a faddist. My likes and dislikes are constantly changing. Flavored blacks are what I gravitate to the most. Having said that, I do enjoy a wide variety of teas – you name it, I’ll try it. I may not like it today, but I might revisit it later and love it.

Flavor note: I prefer my teas to be bold in flavor. I am starting to come around to drinking tea without additives. But I do like to dirty my tea with rock sugar/simple syrup and sometimes with half-n-half/milk. Unflavored greens are unsweetened, but flavored greens I usually add rock sugar. Lately I have been favoring flavored guayusa and matés.
