Tea of the Week for February 24, 2020!
I'll be real right now & admit that even though I've never actually tried the Mojito cocktail, I've tried 'virgin' forms of it (including my own blends) & I love them, so there's no doubt in my mind that when the time comes that I happen to try the alcoholic version, I will probably love that too. I think it's the combo of lime and mint - it just works ... & works beautifully!
This time around, I decided to go Kiwi with my Mojito! This blend starts with organic Chinese Gunpowder green tea, then I added a bunch of freeze-dried kiwi, some lime & spearmint, plus a touch of rum extract (don't worry, it's alcohol free!) The result is absolutely delightful! The kiwi is well-defined, the mint is crisp yet subtle, the lime adds just a hint of brightness to the cup without overpowering the kiwi & the rum note adds a touch of smoothness to the overall taste. It's really quite a refreshing cup - one that makes a winner of an iced tea - as well as an enjoyable hot tea.
I'm really happy with how this one turned out - it's nicely balanced. It's organic, VEGAN, gluten-free & allergen free ... & as I said above, it's also alcohol free!
