Summer Sun, described as “Pineapple Mango Taste”.

Pineapple, ready-to-eat apricots and peaches dominate the aroma, and even though I can’t exactly pull out the mango aroma that I was expecting, this combination of ingredients sort of come together to create it anyway.

In that sense, it’s a clever tea before you even take that first sip.

Herbaceous lemon notes are the first flavour to emerge. Lemon verbena and lemongrass kicking in before anything else.

And I am getting the warmth in the back of my throat from the chili in this blend. Though I can’t rule out a placebo here. I was really focusing on my throat sensations while drinking this.

Taking a few more sips, there’s a slight tropical note building in the body of this tea. Lemon herbs still dominate though. It’s a shame because fresh pineapple and mango are delicious.

Halfway through the cup, passionfruit and apple start to emerge. Nice, but subtle.

The texture of this tea seems smooth at first but now it’s catching in my throat. It feels slightly fibrous, like lemongrass.

Overall it’s pleasant and definitely reminiscent of ‘summer sun’ but it is very subtle in flavour and pineapple/mango notes are severely lacking.

On the other hand, the chili effect is pleasant and it’s refreshing to find a fruit tea for summer that doesn’t contain hibiscus.

This is the most complex-tasting fruit tea I’ve ever tried. 15 minutes of slowly brewing a whole 5g of tea in just 200ml of water is so worth it.

It’s described as blood orange pomegranate flavour, but I get more passion fruit from it than pomegranate. Sweet tropical fruits and citrus swirl in the aroma, tart blood orange sweetness dominates the flavour.

Notes of raspberries and passionfruit create that exotic berry twist, but it’s the hints of fig, pomegranate and apple that give this tea depth and complexity.

I was gifted this tea to review on Instagram, but I don’t think that has biased me. I was expecting the tea to be mediocre (as it was free) but was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it.

My only complaint is that it is very dusty. That last 1/4 of the tea in my cup where the dust settles is undrinkable.

What a long ingredients list! And well; a new company I never heard of. Maybe one day I will place the order.
