My mother makes fun of me because I have to smell EVERYTHING! You see, between my love for tea and one of our side-businesses being candles and in recent years wine tasting and sampling I find myself smelling and sniffing EVERYTHING.
Having said that…
This smells WONDERFUL! The coloring looks more like a pale black or herbal than a green tea. I’m thinking I can taste the pear a tad more than the kiwi. This is tremendous both hot and cold.
Republic of Tea describes this tea as:
This China green tea is luscious with the naturally sweet flavor of ripe pears and tropical tang of kiwi. A highly aromatic, healthy blend that’s refreshing on ice.
I have a local coffee shop that features a few Republic of Tea teas and this is one of them. I haven’t purchased a tin, myself, lately, but this one is on my favorites of Republic of Tea teas.
