From Kokomo Tea

Inspired by the glitz and glamour of South Beach, this green tea blend is worth all the hype. 8th & Ocean is a stunning blend consisting of broken leaf green tea, brightly colored sunflowers, red rose blossoms, cornflowers and dash of flavoring. The result is a highly aromatic green tea blend that has been designed to tickle your fancy. The flavor is a blend of mango and apricot that when combined tastes like a ripe, juicy tangerine. After steeping some of this tea, you will feel like you are living the high life on the shores of a South Beach in a tropical paradise.

The aroma of the dry and the spent leaves is very fruity. I get guava and mango with a hint of passionfruit and marigold in there as well. The tea liquor however smells more vegetal, almost like steamed leeks. My guess is that comes from the Sencha base.

This tea seriously dries the palate. The finish twinges of guava. However, rolling the liquor in the mouth provides a more apricot taste. You can tell this is a Sencha even through all the flavors. There’s the vegetal tones inherent in the green tea, a nuttier lightly roasted sense I get which would be a more southern grown plant. The gritty bitterness from a Sencha is clearly present.

This tea would be maybe a 75 or 80 if it didn’t seriously remind me of having cotton balls in my mouth. That kind of irks me if you know what I mean.
