I steeped this tea for about 3 minutes in my Tea Master (as you can see from the photo below). The water temperature was about 180 degrees.
The Persimmon Tree® offers customers some of the world’s finest
organic teas and botanical. Their high quality teas are hand-blended and
organically grown. When doing my research, what I found most
interesting about this company is that some of their teas are also fair
trade, ensuring a better life for tea workers from countries across
Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

Ingredients: Organic White Peony Loose-Leaf Tea, Organic Strawberries, Marigolds, Ginger Root, Natural Flavors, Guava White Tea
Packaging: (same as previous review) The tea arrived in a tall and skinny air tight
container. Great to keep the tea fresh for a longer period of time. I
actually prefer this style tin over others because it doesn’t take up
too much room in when storing it away. From what I saw, it doesn’t have
the size on the label, but after looking it up online I believe it is
2.5 oz. It’s a standard label with a very appealing look to it. Standard
steeping instructions are on the back as well.
Smell: A very mild scent, not too strong at all. It is a blend that you would have to come up close to the cup while it steeped to get a nice smell of it. It is a refreshing smell, sort of like a small citrus forest.
Taste: Subtle flavouring for sure, but it is nice like that. I prepared this blend with no sugar (thankfully) because it has a very sweet base to it. If sugar was added, I think it would make a great iced tea mix for those cool summer days. However, I don’t really taste as much as the strawberry flavour I would usually like. I tasted the ginger more than the strawberries (my boyfriend tastes less ginger and more strawberries though, lol). Overall, I think this is a great light tea, with medium caffeine intake and if you usually enjoy guava there is no reason why you should not try this excellent blend.
First Sip Thought: *I started to sing Mellow Yellow in my head.* (tea brews into a beautiful yellow colour)
