Leaf Type: Green Tea & Honeybush
Where to Buy: Tea Forté
Fragrant mangoes and peach scent every cup of our lightly steamed green tea with honeybush and a touch of peppermint.
I received a “single steep” package of this tea along with my KATI tumbler, and before I get too deep into reviewing this tea, I want to say that I just love these single steep packages! They are pre-measured with just the right amount of tea for my KATI cup. Armed with the KATI tumbler and some of these single steep packages, a tea lover has just about everything they need to brew a delicious cup of loose leaf tea anywhere they go! Just add hot water!
Now… on to the tea! The flavors of mango and peach permeate each sip of this tea. It is intensely flavored! The green tea base is able to hold its own though, and isn’t overwhelmed. I can taste the fresh, light taste of green tea in the background.
Less noticeable is the flavor of the honeybush, although I can taste the honey-like sweetness from it. The mint in this blend offers a herbaceous, somewhat medicinal taste to the cup that is reminiscent to menthol. I don’t find this to be off-putting, but I can see how others might. The flavor doesn’t overpower the cup, and I will say that the mint flavor lends a very nice minty aftertaste to the tea experience.
I like the ginger’s presence in this cup. It is not too strong, but it adds a nice dimension of flavor and cuts through the sweeter notes of the fruit. It has a well-rounded taste to it. A lovely afternoon cuppa!
