I received this in a swap from hapatite. Thank you!

This was the second of three Hawaii addition teas that hapatite sent me. This was pretty tasty. My biggest complaint is the base. It is a tad on the astringent side for me. I think on the last of the 3 teas I will try a shorter steep time to see if this helps. This seemed like it would have been a great iced tea. It was very fragrant and fruity. It was a nice afternoon cup on this sunny day.

Preparation

Bio

I started drinking tea while on a 4 month long cycling trip through South America. It seemed to always be a great way to warm up when I was cold and it was always available everywhere. Mate was the big tea of choice down there and it was also a great way to get to know people. When I returned home, my sister introduced me to Teavana and this launched me into the realm of loose leaf tea.
