caribe (3 reviews)
Breathe in the sweet aroma of Caribe, a light fusion of green and black teas enhanced by tropical flavors. The exotic tea mellifluously fuses hibiscus, guava, coconut and strawberry, accented with marigolds and cornflowers. The first sip tastes of green tea, trailed by an impressive array of fruit and floral surprises, revealing endless tropical notes tucked into each sip. A favorite for many, Caribe is an inventive and exotic blend softened into a serene escape. Dry Leaves: Although this tea is a mixture of green and black teas, the dry leaves are mostly dark with cornflower. Liquor: The black and green tea leaves in Caribe make for a medium brown liquor.

Flavors: Many tropical flavors; guava, coconut, hibiscus and strawberry. Brewing Time: 2 to 3 minutes Brewing Temperature: 175° F
I did not care for this tea. I’m not sure why as the fruity flavors sound like they’d be great together. For some reason they didn’t agree with me, I just could not get past the smell. For some odd reason it turned my stomach.
