This is the first kiwi-flavoured tea I’ve tried – I always assumed kiwi was one of those fruits that would turn out very artificial. When I received this as a gift, though, I was very excited to try it – particularly after smelling it. The scent in the bag is gorgeous; like a big bowl of thick, whipped cream with pieces if kiwi mixed in and a drizzling of bourbon vanilla extract.
In the cup, it definitely doesn’t disappoint – a slight bit of the creaminess is lost, but the kiwi is juicy and fresh and has a light, pleasant aftertaste of vanilla.
I tried some chilled, and it was beautiful as well.
It’s also nice to see a Kränku tea again – they’re a local store on one of the main islands off the coast of Sweden, and I rarely find them where I usually stay when I’m back home. My aunt and cousins used to summer there, though, and I have many memories of Kränku’s tea blends.
