At the time of this writing it is 60 degrees on the fourth of December in the Northeast region of the US. This is definitely a day to celebrate and get outside and enjoy nature. After a nice morning walk I thought what a perfect way to refresh myself with Capital Tea's Fountain of Youth Acai. With a base of white silver needles and the addition of acai berries, apple, hibiscus, red currents, and blackberry leaves, it sounds like spring is trying to break through!

This tea is so fun and colorful, it has a strong fruity apple scent with hibiscus peeking through. There are fairly large chunks of dried apple and though not listed, I'm pretty sure there is some candied pineapple in there too. I was curious so I tasted one, most definitely pineapple. I brewed this tea with about 1 tablespoon at 175 °F for about 4 minutes. Once brewed it smelt like sweet apple and acai with a scent similar to rose. The liquor was a nice dark blackberry color. The hibiscus and acai were the prominent tastes and it finished with a sweet apple after taste.

This is a smooth cup and though I'm not really into fruity teas, it's an enjoyable cup. With a name like Fountain of Youth, you feel like you're doing something good for yourself. This tea was also enjoyable iced, the pineapple and apple taste became more prominent. As far as pricing, I would say it is a bit steep but since it does have silver needles I'd say it's reasonable.
