drank bird of paradise by Bruu Tea
232 tasting notes

I actually finished the pouch before writing this review, oops. Enjoyable, but nothing extraordinary. The fruit pieces are big, which makes taking the right amount to steep tricky.

So, mainly giving the information from Bruu´s website :
What it is? A lovely, delicate green and white tea blend form a sturdy base for the variety of large fruit pieces and generous helpings of rose petals.
Why we love it? Tropical papaya flavours and juicy orange notes have been perfectly combined in this fresh green tea blend. Sweet berry notes add a very special, delicious touch to the cup.
Where it’s from? Shizuoka is widely known as the green tea capital of Japan and is responsible for over 40% of Japan’s tea production. The almost magical beverage boasts many benefits, and it is often touted as a contributor to the longevity and health of the people of Shizuoka. There are several great view spots of Mt.Fuji in the city which creates an amazing contrast with green tea leaves, blue sky, and white snow.
How our drink hits the senses? One sniff and we’re drinking cocktails on white sandy beaches.
The taste journey : Once the ingredients have infused, the tropical fruit taste is trying to dominate the cup, but the green and white tea blend start to come through to unify the drink. Sweet and fruity.

Flavors: Flowers, Green, Orange, Tropical

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).
