50 Tasting Notes
Out of the two I tried from iHeartTeas, this one is my favourite. It’s like tropical paradise in your mouth! It tastes like Paradise Island from Davids tea but with strawberry instead of Raspberry, very delish. A perfect getaway in your cup!

I was worried about the raspberry in the green tea being either too tart or taste like cough medicine used to taste like. But it’s very light, with a subtle hint of apricot as an after taste. It’s a very light green tea that is perfect hot and would likely be a very nice cool treat this summer.

I love love love this tea! It’s mellow and full of kiwi flavour all at the same time. It is one of my favourite green teas right now. It smells really strong from the tin but isn’t as strong once brewed. If you love Kiwi, you’ll love this tea:
I had such high hopes for this tea. The only tea out of the collection that was black. When I steeped it, I always add milk to the cup first and OMG it was purple. It was gross with milk, and it was nasty without. Not for me. Smelled divine before brewed and totally tart afterwards.
I was not sure what to expect from this, I’m not usually into Oolongs, and someone on here suggested I try milk oolong. It smells milky and sweet, something that I didn’t expect. Well, taste wise, it was… like butter, which I’m not sure i’m down with, but this was ONE expensive tea.
I went to my local tea shop and the tea sommelier gave me a small lukewarm swish of milk oolong that had a 30 second steep….oh my goodness was it good. I bought some….$10 an ounce. Light…delicately sweet and a hint of butter…not too much. If I had this on my own I KNOW I would have steeped the heck out of it. I’m almost afraid to ruin such a virgin leaf…one that needs to be handled with care. (I’m beginning to sound yucky)
I didn’t know what to expect with this tea as I’d never tried anything like this before. It was very smooth and light. It wasn’t vegital until it cooled a bit. Must drink this one quickly before it cools. I quiet like it, about to try a second steeping.
