From Angelina's Teas

Cup Characteristics: Infusion captures the aromas of fresh kiwi fruit – sweet, yet mild. A very nice tea over ice.

Infusion: Bright and Coppery.

Ingredients: Black tea, Daisy white, Natural flavors.

Information:
Think Kiwi fruits originated in New Zealand? They are actually native to China. Chinese nobility called them Yang Tao and prized them for their dazzling flavor and royal emerald color. The fuzzy fruit with the sweet green pulp (Latin: Actinidia chinensis) was first brought to New Zealand in 1906. A few years later a horticulturalist named Hayward Wright cultivated the commercial kiwi fruit that is now exported all over the globe. The fruit was originally marketed, with little success, under the name “Chinese Gooseberry”. It was decided that for advertising purposes the fruit needed a more memorable name and so the name of New Zealand’s national bird was chosen – Kiwi. It is difficult to describe the fruit’s sweet flavor. It is probably best summed up as having a delicate “multi-fruit” character – mild, and sweet, not too tart. It is not difficult to sum up the flavor of this tea however. One word can do that: absolutelycompletelydelicious, (although that too might not be so great for advertising purposes!)

I am slowly losing any motivation to have a productive day. It has been pouring rain all day and I went to class, so I feel like that’s enough productivity for the day. I’m going to make a cup of this tea and have lunch and see where the day goes. . . either a nap with the pups and some reading or starting an essay for english, blah.

I had been wanting to find a good kiwi flavored black tea for awhile when I stumbled across this one at Angelina’s. I eat a kiwi almost every day for breakfast. I had a kiwi black tea before from a swap, but it wasn’t labeled, so unfortunately I wasn’t able to find the source. I like that most of Angelina’s teas that I’ve tried so far seem to be pretty good quality considering the reasonable pricing ($2.14/ounce). This tea smells very mildly of tart fruit. The flavor is more sweet than tart, and although it is a little artificial tasting it isn’t bad overall. It would probably be good iced as a summertime tea. I will probably keep searching for my perfect kiwi tea, but this one will be good to have on hand in the meantime. :)

-Dry blend has large black tea leaves and twigs with light green pieces of flower.
-Dry leaves smell mildly of tart fruit. Tea liquor aroma is of sweet kiwi.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium golden brown color.
-Slightly tart kiwi flavor with a sweet finish.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Good tea. Sweet juicy kiwi flavor.
