I want to start this post off by saying I HATE WINTER. Unfortunately for me…I live in the snow belt. Sigh. Yes, I know…it’s ONLY the beginning of December but I am ALREADY sick of winter! I don’t like being cold and I hate snow!
So, when I received this SUMMER SUNRISE Flavored Black Tea from Joy’s Teaspoon – I was HAPPY for more than one reason!
I was also excited because I found out that Joy’s Teaspoon is from Las Vegas! I LOVE VEGAS! I have been there 3 times so far! PLUS last year The World Tea Expo was in Vegas. I heard for 2011 the World Tea Expo will be held in Las Vegas yet again! I haven’t been to the World Tea Expo but I would LOVE to go someday! In the meantime…I will enjoy one of Las Vegas’s Tea Companies here in my home!
Anyhow…on to this specific tea from Joy’s Teaspoon…
I guess I can make the connection with the name of this because it DOES remind me of a Summer field or meadow! The pretty aroma and feeling it gives you right off the bat!
The taste is of black tea, basil, and a hint of lemony goodness…but only a hint. So if you are afraid of lemon – you might like this because it is subtle. If you are worried about the Basil – don’t be! It adds to the over all cup but isn’t over powering.
This is nice…if you get the chance…try it!
