Thumbs up!"A fruit-tisane that easily beats any other I've ever tried... tastes vaguely like an orange creamsicle, with a definite lime twist."

I'm not a huge nut for fruit-infusion tisanes.  I enjoy them, they rarely disappoint me, but its not a driving interest.  When I want a hot beverage, I generally want a good, old fashioned black or oolong.  So when this latest package of teas from The Teacup (Seattle), arrived at Teaviews, I didn't think much of the little package with "Turkish Lime (Fruit Tisane)" scribbled on the outside.

It was only a few days later, when one of our reviewers requested a sample of "Turkish Lime" that I finally opened the bag and took that first initial whiff.  And.... WOW.  Immediately childhood memories of orange creamsicles came flooding back, only instead of orange there was this delightful, lime-scented twist to it that just threw me back.  I portioned out a sample for my fellow tea reviewer but made darned sure there was just enough left in the original package for one proper brew for myself.  I just had to try this stuff.

From The Teacup's website:

"Turkish Lime is a great departure from the more standard hibiscus based fruit teas, created from apples, pineapple, and lime essences for a refreshing, unique flavor that as always is caffeine free. Smooth enough to drink everyday, interesting enough to be served at weddings, this tea is fast becoming an addictive favorite for staff and customers alike."

It's no surprise this has become a staff favorite - this tisane is DELICIOUS!  Just like the original whiff, the flavor in the final brew is fruity and creamy - just like a lime creamsicle, if they ever actually made such a thing.  There's just enough sugar included with the fruit pieces to make this nice and sweet on its own, with no additions necessary.

This was one of those one-in-a-hundred tea experiences that really left me wanting to go out and purchase a full pound of this stuff straight away.  If you enjoy fruit infusions at all, to any degree, I doubt you'll find a more deliciously blended one than this.  Definitely a must try.
