The name of the tea sounds wonderful, but I’ll admit that I was a bit hesitant trying this one. I keep trying, but I don’t seem to be much of a fan of fruity or floral teas.

The dry base has a really nice, citrusy smell. Once brewed, I get a bit more of the grassy guayusa smell, and less citrus.

I first tasted it straight, and it’s pretty good. A light tangerine taste with a grassy/earthy undertone to it. It doesn’t really taste creamy to me, but that’s ok.

When I added a bit of cane sugar (as is suggested), the citrus flavour became more apparent, and the grassy taste was reduced. Very good. I’m not a huge fan of adding anything to my drinks, though, so I’m glad I can drink this one straight if I want to.

This is one “fruity” tea that I like.

Bio

I’m a vegan, board-game playing, avid reader who likes to run and/or lift weights depending on my mood (and current injuries).

I’m fairly new to tea, but my collection seems to be growing at an exponential rate. Herbals, greens, whites, and now oolongs are my teas of choice at the moment. I haven’t developed a taste for black yet (if it’s something you can develop a taste for).
