Taster’s Review:


I am really enjoying the combination of the slightly smoky, slightly earthy taste of the Yerba Maté together with the citrus notes in this Painted Paradise Tea from Whispering Pines Tea Company.

Yerba Maté is not always a flavor that I favor, because it can sometimes come off as too earthy for my taste.  But in this blend, there seems to be a pleasing balance between earthy notes and the sweet citrus tones.  The citrus notes really brighten up the cup and keep the earthiness in check.

It is a little bit sweet, tangy, earthy, vegetative and even just a wee bit smoky.  It’s a well-rounded cup, and it’s very invigorating!  I love the citrus tones to this … just the kind of tisane you want to sip when you want to start the morning off right!  It has a nice sweetness to it – no additions needed – and it tastes great hot or iced too.

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
