So, small anecdote: I’ve never seen Peewee’s Big Adventure and have no desire to ever see it. So when Kiwi’s Big Adventure was first posted, my mind somehow managed to interpret it as a…. Kiki’s Delivery Service reference.

Disappointingly, I don’t like this tea nearly as much as I like the movie. :/ I had it iced in store today and it was just bland. Bland and bitter. I asked for only a little agave because the smell and description promised it’d be sweet by itself, since usually I like some sweetener in green tea when I have it iced, but it was just awful. Bland, no kiwi flavour, no fruity flavour at ALL, just bitter iced green tea. It may have been how it was brewed, since I got it at the location I haven’t been very happy with recently, but I doubt I’ll be getting a sample of my own to try, honestly.

I am hoping they just brewed this incorrectly, because I am really hoping to love this tea!

I hope so too! I’m going to wait a little bit before I try it again (either hot in the store or maybe a small sample to brew at home) because I absolutely adore kiwi fruit—I don’t want this one to let me down!

Bio

Canadian tea addict! Also a fandom nerd and perpetual student. My favourites are greens (genmaicha and a good jasmine), pu’erh (any kind—I love pu’erh), lapsang souchong, yerba mate, and guayusa. I almost seem to be one of the lone Pukka fans of Steepster, but I’m all right with that.

It’s been about two years since I’ve done anything on Steepster, but we’ll see if I find myself moved to post anything here on out. Till then, whenever that may be!
