This was actually a tea included in my first month´s Bruu tea subscription, but one way or another, I took it on holidays with me, forgot to taste it, travelled back with it…and so, almost 6 months later, I finally drank it. It´s a very easy drinking tea, fruity (in a tropical way even : mango!) and light. So, its name is definitely a good pick.

What Bruu themselves say about the tea :
What it is? A harmonious premium gourmet blend of green and white – a real Spring-time delight, all year round.
Why we love it : The scents from the initial opening become more prominent in the steeping stage. A desirable green with fruity kicks throughout. The palate is teased by a fruity, nippy aroma composition that makes this tea blend a real speciality. The combination of the different fruits flatters the smooth, fresh taste of the tea.
Where it’s from : Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan. The region has a long history of volcanic activity with eleven still active, such that much of the land throughout Kagoshima has been covered in a layer of volcanic ash known as “shirasu” (in Japanese). This ash helps produce soil that is exceptionally rich in minerals.
How our drink hits the senses : The scents from the initial opening become more prominent, a real fresh green and white mix that is reminding us that summer is coming!
The taste journey : A desirable green with fruity kicks throughout – a harmonious blend.

Flavors: Green, Mango

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
