ttjunglekingI have had many different teas from Tea & Tea and I’ve enjoyed all of them. Just the look of Jungle King tea interested me due to all the ingredients. This tea is made up of assam, ceylon tea, lemongrass, pineapple, apple, orange peels, ginger bits, cardamom, red currants, coconut, sunflower petals, natural aroma. Assam is black tea from India and Ceylon is a classic black tea that originated in Sri Lanka.
I steeped 2 teaspoons in 1 1/2 cup of water. It only needed to steep for about 2 minutes. When you smell the tea leaves, you really smell the citrus from the orange peel. It is very fruity due to the pineapple and apple. As it steeped for a few minutes, I began to smell more of the earthy black tea and spice from the ginger. I was surprised when I took a sip and first tasted something that I didn't smell-the coconut! If you’re a fan of coconut, you’ll love this tea. It tastes like sweet coconut milk, which is buttery from the sunflower petals. It coats your mouth with spicy, citrusy, pina colada flavors. The lemon-grass adds a fresh, grassy element that is unexpected. The black tea and ginger make it rich and savory. You can really taste the tart, malty assam. It blends quite wonderfully. It is as creamy as butterscotch and yet citrusy from the orange. It is an unexpected flavor combination that works.
I really enjoyed this surprising tea. You may guess how it will taste from the smell, but unless you’ve looked at the ingredients, you’re in for a delicious surprise. Due to the fruity flavors, this tea would make the perfect iced tea for a hot, summer day. I tried this tea cold and really loved it. It’s sweet without any additives. Due to all the ingredients, the tea has many health benefits as well! Sunflower is anti-inflammatory. Assam and Ceylon can help mental awareness due to caffeine. Pineapples and red currants contain Vitamin C. Ginger tea can help relieve tired muscles. Apple tea can help reduce bad cholesterol. Lemongrass is said to have cancer fighting properties and orange peels help aid digestion.
