Thumbs up!"delicious and entirely addicting. The jasmine and ginger take a back seat to the tropical fruit flavors, but they do keep the overall fruitiness and sweetness in check."

With the dog days of summer in full swing here in south Florida, I happily offered to sample some of White August's special iced tea blends, including today's treat, Emerald Ice. This is a blend of green tea with ginger, jasmine, and tropical fruits. I do wish a little more detail was given as to the ingredients list so I knew exactly which fruits were involved. I prepared this tea as if I was making a cup of hot green tea, infusing one teaspoon of leaves per cup in 185-degree water for three minutes. I then let the tea sit at room temperature for about an hour before tossing it in the fridge for the afternoon. After work, I treated myself to the iced concoction. My first impression was "yum". This is a sweet green tea, but not overly sweet. The ginger and jasmine were not as pronounced as I imagined they would be, and while they clearly take a back seat to the tropical fruit flavors, they do keep the overall fruitiness and sweetness in check. The jasmine in particular keeps the tea crisp and refreshing in a way that I really appreciated. I find it hard to describe the overall flavor of this tea, but I'll give it my best shot at this: imagine mixing a mellow and sweet green tea with apple juice, then adding just a hint of jasmine. If this description sounds unappealing to you, then I have failed to properly describe this tea, as the truth is that it is delicious and entirely addicting. At the completion of each sip, I find myself wanting more and wishing my sample was larger so that I could brew a second batch of this deliciousness. I see myself ordering a stash of this in the near future!
