I got this as a gift. It’s probably not something I would have picked up myself because I would have been weirded out by the green and black tea blended together, but you know what? It’s good!

The outside packaging and the website say 175 degrees, while the inside packaging says 195, so they need to sort that out. I went for the lower temperature to avoid harshing out the green.

There’s a nice light fruitiness that is hard to describe — I’m guessing it’s the jackfruit, since I’ve never tasted that ripe (only young and green in savory dishes). The almond is definitely very easy to pick out, in an almond-cookie sort of way — delicious! The green and black tea bases are basic, serving as a tasty but nothing-special backdrop for the other flavors. Mixing the two types together seems to balance out what might become a problem in either on its own — grassiness in the green or bitter astringency in the black.

I like it. I bet it’d be awesome iced, too.

I love oolongs (especially milk oolongs), floral teas of all kinds, and the well done fruity tea blend or tisane.
