Crisp, tart, sweet taste. Hot or iced, I really like this one. Even though the ingredient list is lengthy the flavor isn’t at all muddy. Clean and refreshing, it reminds me of a hibiscus and rosehip herbal tisane I had years ago. But this one is even nicer as it’s balanced with a veritable fruit salad of berries, citrus, apples, and pineapple along with a hint of minty cool finish. Think minty garnish on a fruit salad not full-on flavor like a Mojito. While it’s a listed as a mate, I don’t really taste any mate and I’m hard pressed to find even pieces of mate in with the beautiful, large chunks of fruit. They are there, though. I think I felt a little pick-me-up from the mate, but it could have just been the tart flavor giving me that little burst of energy. I actually found a second steeping was not bad. It is different — not as tart and bright, but still pleasantly fruity. I blended it with a couple of oolongs so far and it held up nicely. Yummy!

Bio

I’m a mom, graphic designer and tea drinker. Love, love, love tea!

My favorites are Oolong. There’s an almost magical, sparkling taste in some that I relish with a fervor. But I love all kinds and really enjoy tasting teas that I’ve never tried before. It’s a little dangerous that I live fairly close to a Teavana as well as an Asian market with a lot of tea.

In my photo you can see our cat enjoying a pot of hot tea almost as much as I do, but for mostly different reasons.
