Fruity Pebbles, by Tiesta Teas, is a blend of China Sencha, Lung Ching, Pai Mu Tan, papaya bits, pineapple bits, rose petals, and strawberry bits. This tea is a Slenderizer and was a 2008 World Tea Champion winner. The Sencha is very nice and blends well with the fruit flavours. The Lung Ching (or dragonwell) and Pai Mu Tan (or white) teas are a welcome addition and provide a bit more depth to the flavour of this delightful tea. I enjoyed this tea immensely for its fruitiness as well as the Sencha. It is a light, refreshing beverage perfect for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up or a summer beverage. As of yet, I have not tried this tea iced but I’m sure it would be very good.

I steeped 1 tsp of this tea at 175F for 2 minutes. The leaves are tightly rolled bright green leaves mixed with large pieces of the various fruits. They are colourful with a bold fruity aroma. On brewing the tea, I noticed a more subtle aroma from the light green liquor. The first sip brought out a pineapple flavour and further investigation into the cup revealed definite papaya and passionfruit elements. Later steeps proved to be equally refreshing if only with a slightly more muted flavour. This tea is not bitter or unpleasant in its flavour. It is smooth and refreshing. When drinking this tea it is evident that the tea is of a good quality which makes the consumption of it all the more pleasant.

The sample that I received of this tea was large enough to brew several steeps and it is quickly becoming a favourite in my household. I would recommend this tea to anyone looking to enjoy a lively, invigorating cup of green tea with a fruity kick to it. It is not very expensive and is definitely worth purchasing.
