This has a lovely aroma! Tropical and Fruity but not overly so and certainly not artificial – to the nose.

It infuses to a VERY Dark Brown color – near coffee color. It has that bold black tea base with Mango flavor up-front followed by Kiwi and then Passion Fruit. This is very tasty, nicely flavored black, and great both hot and cold!

I have to try this one! I’m from the ‘tropics’ and I’ve learned the hard way to stay well away from ANYTHING that says ‘tropic/tropical/Caribbean/etc.’ because it usually tastes like Kool-aid and Hawaiian Punch had a tea battle.

TeaEqualsBliss

I’m loving it because it’s NOT Banana-type flavor but it also isn’t Kool-Aid type…it doesn’t have hibiscus in it! Woot!

JC

Nice! I’ll get some of that soon. Do you have any other fruit flavored tea recommendations?

TeaEqualsBliss

From Empire, specifically or from other companies, too? What kind of fruits do you NOT like???

JC

I’m not a picky eater. I like all fruits but I hate that ‘natural’ flavor of some teas that remind me of hard candy or fruit roll ups.

TeaEqualsBliss

I’m pondering this for you! LOL :)
Are you searching for a specific base? Like flavored black or flavored greens or fruity herbals? Or doesn’t it matter/or an assortment?

JC

I would guess black tea because I feel is a better base for flavors but I can try a with greens too.

TeaEqualsBliss

Cool! I will put some thought to that!

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea.

I knew I’d be running some errands early today, and probably wouldn’t have a lot of time for tea, so I brewed this early in the morning in my breville and allowed it to cool so that I could try it as an iced tea (since this is the iced tea version of this blend).

I did happen to take a few sips of it hot though, and I got to say, it was alright hot, but this one is definitely better iced. The primary flavor is that of the black tea, and that’s the way it should be. After that flavor settles on the palate, I begin to pick up notes of the mango, the passion fruit and mere hints of the kiwi. I find myself wanting a bit more kiwi, but, as I continue to sip, this flavor (as well as the other fruit notes) develops a bit more.

A very refreshing iced tea!
