This green tea contains prickly pear, pineapple and rose. I have never had prickly pear before so I don’t know if this tea captures the flavour but I do know that this tea has a fresh and clean taste with a fruity undertone. I think it would make a nice iced tea in summer if one likes a tea with floral notes. It smells fruitier than it tates, but the fruit in the flavour tastes more like fresh cut fruit than something jammy. I can’t name the fruity flavour but it references pear, slightly ripe strawberry and fig, mixed with a raisony, dried apricot taste. The rose mixed with the green tea leaves it with a fresh aftertaste. The green base is pleasant enough and when brewed at a cooler temperature produces a tea with a creamy mouthfeel. It brews fairly dark for a green tea to almost a saffron colour and has a slight bitterness to it, that nevertheless is refreshing. It resteeps well with consistent flavouring through resteeps.

Really nice when I’m craving something both fuity and floral. Very refreshing. It makes me think of spring!
