From Tiesta Tea

We think the Jolly Green Giant was shrunk into tiny kiwi pieces that got mixed with sencha green tea, apple bits, orange peels and lemon grass to form this blend. If you drink enough of this Slenderizer blend, you might shrink, too!

I decided I was going to try the Amazon fresh delivery service for my groceries since I’m not able to do a lot of grocery shopping with my injury. The service was great aside from the fact that the frozen food and even produce came inside styrofoam boxes, which I then had to dismantle. I’m not a big fan of sytrofoam for environmental reasons.

Anyway they did have quite a few teas by Tiesta (and others), which is a company I’ve never tried. This sounded good to me and I brewed it up this afternoon.

I was really hoping for more of a kiwi flavor in this. I’m getting more apple than kiwi but I’m finding it there when the cup cools. I see dried apple and lemon bits in the brewed tea but I think the kiwi might be flavoring only. I like the green tea base in this blend which is very refreshing and I’m getting a bit of tartness in the overall finish. I will have to experiment a bit with the brewing parameters of this to see if I can do anything to make the kiwi come through. This is ok but not really what I was expecting. Will have to try cold brewing this.

If it helps, I once got a ton of styrofoam myself and was frustrated what to do with it. Landfills refuse to accept it here. So I put out an ad on Craigslist for it all, to give it away free, and I had almost 40 people vying for it! It ended up getting split between an artist who carves sculptures out of it, and a lady using it to insulate her cold space.

Kiwi is tricky. My Kiwi Vanilla from Kränku is still my fave fave.

The first time I brewed this tea it was literally on a whim. I had just bought it, ripped it open, scooped out 2 tspns and eagerly dumped it into “hot” water. I was initally scared it might not have been hot enough, but it is a green blend, so I hoped for the best. Turned out to be for the best! It was delicious! :)

I could taste “fiji apples” and a slight “fruit punch” flavor, which I am guessing is the kiwi taste? I really didn’t get much kiwi. I could detect a hint of kiwi, but not much. No biggie for me though.

Second time around I think I made the water TOO hot, because I wasn’t able to get that fruity taste. The green tea is all I can taste second time around.

I would probably buy this again because its relatively cheap and easy to get down at Mejier, or at the Giant Eagle near my work place. I would also buy this again because I like the taste. :)

My favorite Tiesta blend… I think I reached for it today because it’s full of apples, and because it’s the fall, I have apples on the brain.

I know kiwi is supposed to be a summer fruit, but this tea is good any time of the year. It’s got the same natural sweetness that fruit has, and the green base is superb.

TeaBrat

this makes a nice iced tea.
