Drink Me: Tea Embassy, Secret Garden

Another tea I picked up in my last Tea Embassy order was their Secret Garden blend.

From the website, Secret Garden contains Pai Mu Tan, Darjeeling and Chinese green teas, sencha, dragonwell, gunpowder, jasmine jade pearls, candied mango bits, candied pineapple bits, orange peels, strawberry bits, red currants, sour cherry bits and apricot bits.

Secret Garden is available at $6.50 per ounce in 1oz, 2oz, 4oz, 8oz and 1lb packages.

When I first opened the package, I got the overwhelming tropical scent of the mango and pineapple. As it brewed I also detected the cherry and strawberry scents.   The tea itself was light and fruity.  The blend didn’t taste strongly of any of the actual teas: I didn’t get a black tea feel from it, and the green tea was very light and not grassy.  Overall, it was a really nice light fruity blend. I think it would be fantastic iced and I really enjoyed it.
