Leaf Type: Green
Where to Buy: David’s Tea
Sweet and fruity with a dash of nutty flavour, this green tea is the saviour of elves everywhere. When they’re building to deadline in the workshop, they crave a drink that’s like dessert with a kick of energy. So we made a tea that tastes just like fruitcake in a mug. Add some brandy for the authentic cake experience – those tipsy elves always do.
Sencha green tea, orange peel, apple, papaya, raisins, barberries, freeze-dried cranberries, coconut, natural flavouring.
Yum!!! This is so tasty.
One quick glance at the ingredient list might lead someone to believe that this is going to be a very fruity tea – and it is – but, it isn’t SO fruity that it overwhelms the flavor of the green tea.
The green tea is light-bodied and light in flavor, but it adds a crisp, fresh taste to the fruit that is distinct. It isn’t very grassy or vegetative to taste; if you’re one that doesn’t care for green tea because it does come off as too grassy or vegetative, this is an excellent choice for you!
There is a lot of different fruit tastes here. I can taste hints of each fruit, but the two that stand out the most definitively to me are the orange and the cranberry. There is also a certain “tropical-y” taste to this, like the Elves on holiday!
It is sweet (almost candy like!) and there is a hint of tartness toward the end of the sip. Due to the sweetness of this cup, it is one that I recommend tasting before you add additional sweetener – you may find this one to be just right without it.
I can see why David’s Tea decided to make this a holiday-ish blend – it definitely reminds me of Christmas with its delicious flavor. It does remind me a bit of a fruitcake (which I happen to like although sometimes I think I’m the only one who does!)
It is sweet, fruity and delicious. A tea that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys flavored green teas – this one is one I could enjoy again and again! Love it!
