A Berry Frui-tea July! I got a sample of this from a cupboard sale from tea-sipper and this heatwave seems the perfect time to cold brew up a batch (this constant weather over 90 degrees is getting really old).
The dry leaf has a noticable melon aroma, but is also quite fruity and sweet. The brewed tea smells much the same, like fruity berries, melon, and sweet. The tea is naturally sweet, and tastes just like one of the Starbursts that is in the berry medly assortment, though trying to pinpoint which one would be a bit hard… perhaps a cross of the strawberry and the watermelon? I’m getting both melon and berry notes, but it has a sort of candy-like sweetness to the over-all flavor which is reminding my palate of those Starbursts. It’s quite refreshing and does make me think a little of a fruit punch from the flavor, except the mouthfeel is much lighter and silkier, thanks to the smooth sencha base.
It’s a very enjoyable iced tea, with quite a unique flavor. I was pretty surprised with this one.
