drank Kiwi Lime Ginger by Tea Forte
4843 tasting notes

I was a little worried about brewing this single steep package in my KATI tumbler because I thought that the rooibos leaves would fall through the mesh on the strainer, but, surprisingly, it did not.

Prior to infusion, this smells like lime and kiwi fruit, with very faint notes of ginger. After infusing, the liquor has a slight medicinal scent to it … but not so much that it’s off-putting. It almost smells like eucalyptus.

But it doesn’t taste like eucalyptus. The ginger is stronger in the flavor than it is in the dry scent, and while it is quite a dominating flavor, it isn’t completely overpowering the lime and kiwi flavors. I like the way these flavors are working together. The honeybush and rooibos taste nutty and sweet, and provide a nice backdrop.

I like this one.


I wish I had your luck with my sample!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
