Tonight I remembered to drink something without caffeine. Go me!
The first time I had starfruit was on a family vacation during high school to the US Virgin Islands. Starfruit reminds me of the bright blue seas and days spent SCUBA diving and snorkling. I wanted a tea that would evoke memories of that sweet fruit and that vacation.
Unfortunately, I was disappointed. Oh, it’s not a bad tea… but it’s base is chamomile, and the flavorings (not actual fruit bits, just flavorings) aren’t strong enough to break through the chamomile. Chamomile is awfully strong… it was an odd choice for this tea, I think.
So, the major taste here is chamomile, then if you look for it you can find orange. Starfruit? Maybe in my imagination.
Again, it’s not a bad tea at all… just not what I was expecting from the name.
