summer teas

DSC01920 Soon after I left for Hawaii, the postcard for a sample of Mariage Frères' 2012 summer tea came in the mail.

This year's tea is called Havana, a green tea with hibiscus, pomegranate & goji berries. This one is quite fruity, but really refreshing as an iced tea.

DSC01921 Satoshi was nice enough to go to Kobe and pick up a can of their Happy Queen tea so that I could receive the free sample of Havana.

Happy Queen is a green tea base with pomegranate, citrus and peony. Not as fruity as Havana but just as delicious.

mariage freres' "happy queen" green tea, pomagranate, citrus, peony #tea love the hot pink can too! Gotta love the hot pink tin that it comes in too.

Thanks Satoshi!

Not going to lie, I would totally get it just for the hot pink canister, haha
