Bonus Tea for December 2020: Citrus Smiles Kukicha Green Tea!

Posted by on

Citrus Smiles Kukicha Green Tea!

Tea Description: My original intention with this green Kukicha was to reblend the very popular Lemon-Lime Meringue Kukicha - unfortunately, I didn't have enough lime for that tea to reblend it. Since I had the kukicha & I had lemon, a little bit of lime, some orange as well as some grapefruit - I decided to instead make a citrus-y kukicha featuring all these citrus-y flavors - with an emphasis on the brighter notes of grapefruit & lemon with some undertones of sweetness from the orange. 

The flavors of this tea are bright & citrus-y - but not too sour or tart. You get a nice punch of grapefruit & lemon, while the orange notes subdue those tart notes just enough to avoid a pucker. The kukicha is fresh & sweet. It's a very pleasant cuppa that's naturally low in caffeine. It's also organic, VEGAN, gluten-free & allergen free!

organic ingredients: green tea, lemon, orange, grapefruit, lime & natural flavors

Wow! I love how bright this blend is - lots of citrus-y flavor! At first, I was tasting a lot of the grapefruit, but as I continued to sip, I picked up on more of the lemon & orange & even a bit of the lime. The kukicha has a sweet flavor & it contrasts nicely with the bright, sunny notes of the citrus fruit. 

I really nice pick-me-up that is not overly caffeinated - so you can drink this in the evening when you want a little burst of energy without something that's going to keep you alert too late at night. 

to brew: give the pouch a gentle shake. use 2 1/2 grams of leaf to 12 ounces of very hot water (175°F) & allow to steep for 2 1/2 minutes. strain & allow to cool for at least 5 minutes. enjoy!

I prefer this without sweetener - but if you prefer a sweeter tea, go ahead & try it with a drizzle of honey!
