Nostalgia is a tricky thing to bottle. It's also the dominant item in mind of this tea's developers. With New York summer in mind: this blend was carefully crafted to evoke the rich, fruity sensation of strolling the along Long Island shoreline. See if you can ignore the comfort resting deep in this tea. Versatility is key here: and in the summertime, there is little that can compete with the tones in a strawberry-kiwi tea. To say that it's refreshing is to do little justice to the flavor collection of this fruity tea. With familiarity on its side; Strawberry Kiwi's overall profile lends itself well to a hot or cold serving. Sucrose pushes forward, insisting lightly that the strawberry not be ignored even as the tarter notes of kiwi make themselves apparent. This blend of fruity and tangy has never been more crucial to a tisanal mix. Full-bodied and true, this strawberry-kiwi mix lives up to its name: providing ample fruit flavorings from both sources.
Strawberries tend to be the more finicky partner: coming into season in the spring. With dewier campaigns to attend to, they flourish in mild wet weather. That kiwi is ever brought into their social fold is something of a modest miracle. But the miracle is in the blend: and this tea speaks its name proudly.
