Minty Winter Wonderland from Tiesta Tea

Minty-Winter-WonderlandTisane Information:

Leaf Type:  Rooibos

Where to Buy:  Amoda Tea

Tea Description: 

Tastes just like the ingredients would suggest: white chocolate, vanilla and mint… yes! It came as a surprise to us that the natural flavours of rooibos made their way through all that mint. The honey and almost woodsy characteristics are definitely there. Of course though, that peppermint keeps going and going and going.

Taster’s Review:

I’m a bit behind on reviewing some of my teas … this tea came in my Amoda Tea Tasting Box for December.  The 12 Days of Christmas thing threw me for a loop, and then there was that nasty head cold … but, enough with the excuses.  Let’s talk about this delightful Minty Winter Wonderland from Tiesta Tea!

This is really yummy.  It is a rooibos blend, but I don’t taste a lot of rooibos here.  There’s a nutty sort of flavor – something between nutty and woody – that is definitely rooibos but, it is such a small part of this tisane.

Mostly what I taste is MINT!  Crisp, cool peppermint!  And the way this tisane has been composed, it tastes very much like a candy cane.  The white chocolate gives it a sweet, creamy note … and the touch of vanilla enhances that sweet and creamy note.  It is so yummy … it tastes like someone may have melted a candy cane in a cup of rooibos.  There is a honey-esque tone too … something I don’t usually attribute to rooibos, but, it’s there.

Overall, a delicious cup of tisane.

Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of “Gramma” and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn’t drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn’t cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn’t cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
