Garden of Eden tea review (#31)

Flavored green/white tea
Margaret's Fine Imports
$4.50/2 oz

Ingredients: China Sencha, Kukicha, Pai Mu Tan (80%), dragonfruit pieces (dragonfruit, sugar), lemongrass, flavoring, freeze-dried kiwi and raspberry pieces, pomegranate arils.

This is the dry tea you smell through your nose, exhale through your mouth, and repeat. The scent is absolutely heavenly with dragonfruit and kiwi. I don't know how it achieves this, but it smells somewhat peppery/spicy despite its light sweet fruit. The green and white teas in it are very delicate and light.

Amazingly delicious iced, with a gorgeous green color. It's good hot too, with such a light flavor it's barely there! I might add more tea next time I steep. But, it's soft like a white tea should be.

It's blended at Margaret's by an employee, which is really cool. She used pomegranate arils, how unusual!

This tea smells so good, I could eat it!

It really opens up in steeping.

Next time I'll review a classic.
