Sour Apple Green from Stylin’ Tea Blends. . . . .

YUM! Can I just start off by saying…YUM!? Well, there! I ‘done..did it’! Sour Apple Green from Stylin’ Tea Blends is MORE than brilliantly done! It’s a MUST on my flavored green teas of the moment list! Here’s why…

Sour Apple Green from Stylin’ Tea Blends – as you can guess – is a sour apple flavored green tea! It’s made up of Green Tea, Apple Pieces, Lemon Pieces, Safflower Petals, and Sunflower Petals. It’s gorgeously colorful to look at dry and smells wonderful. The aroma gets even stronger and juicier once infused!

Yummy, juicy, sweet apple paired with citrus, tart, and puckery lemon do a nice tie-in with the medium-strength yet sweeter tasting green tea base. The floral ingredients I assumed were more for show actually did contribute a bit of floral flavor that was noticeable on the end sip and after taste.

Tomato Tornado from Stylin’ Blends. . . . .

Tomatoes? Yes, please! I have to say that was the REAL reason I was so stoked about trying this tea/tisane. The tisane I am referring to is Tomato Tornado from Stylin’ Blends. Ingredients include Tomato, Ginger, Beet pieces, Hibiscus, Cardamom, Black Pepper, White Pepper, Cinnamon, Clove, and Nutmeg.

Stylin’ Blends product description says…Yes the first ingredient is tomato. When we were told there was a blend that had tomato and ginger as well as spices we use in our chai blends, we were really intrigued. The name of this unique blend came from my mother who was in Kansas at the time. Since this is an herbal blend there is no caffeine!

Tomato, Beet, and Hibiscus are the flavors you taste first quickly followed by the chai spices. Each of these ingredients are on the more mellow side but when they are all together they work out incredibly well. There are nods to a tomato soup type flavor as well as those chai spices.

Tomato Tornado is not only a conversational tisanes it’s one the is good tasting and good for you! I really enjoy this tisane. I will say that I could taste the ginger more as it cooled naturally at room temperature and if you cold brew it. Two thumbs up from me on this one! Nicely done, Stylin’ Blends!

Festive Coffee Fushion from Stylin’ Tea Blends

Festive Coffee Fushion from Stylin’ Tea Blends is really something special. If you are into coffee and/or tea you will most likely find this of interest. For those of you who are into coffee flavored teas – this one is right up there! Not only does it contain Green Coffee Beans – it also has ground coffee! Pair that with a blended black tea AND Pu-erh base and you are sure to get your caffeine blitz for the day! Oh! And there are some chamomile flowers in there, too!

I actually kind of wondered WHY the Chamomile? But once I tasted Festive Coffee Fushion from Stylin’ Tea Blends it all made sense! It seemed to round out the flavor and cut back that coffee aftertaste a bit, too!

The Pu-erh and the Black Tea were fairly strong when it comes to a tea strength but the coffee flavors seemed to play leap-frog with the tea a bit. Over all this was a VERY strong flavor! Festive Coffee Fushion from Stylin’ Tea Blends was a nice kick in the butt to get me going on a rough morning!

But let’s talk about this aroma, shall we!? Festive Coffee Fushion from Stylin’ Tea Blends was strong on the tongue but also strong on the ole’ sniffer, too! WOWZA!

Rose Marzipan Black Tea from Stylin’ Tea Blends

Oh…I honestly could NOT wait to try Rose Marzipan Black Tea from Stylin’ Tea Blends because of my former love of Teavana’s Rose Marzipan from years ago – and I realize that is a blast from the past but let me explain.

Years ago my favorite tea from Teavana was their Rose Marzipan.  I find a lot of their teas to be over sweetened and overuse the dreaded hibiscus!  However I really LOVED that specific tea from Teavana regardless.  When they did away with it I felt a bit lost.  I have been searching for something even remotely close to that for years.  Enter Rose Marzipan Black Tea from Stylin’ Tea Blends!

Eventho Rose Marzipan Black Tea from Stylin’ Tea Blends doesn’t have the candied rose like that ‘other company’ did and I find this one to have more cardamom and almond than the other company did – I have to say I was blown away by Rose Marzipan Black Tea from Stylin’ Tea Blends!

I am no longer lost when it comes to finding the PERFECT Rose Marzipan!  Thank you – Stylin’ Tea Blends!  I have tried other Rose Marzipans and I have been left wanting.  Rose Marzipan Black Tea from Stylin’ Tea Blends is just what I have been craving!  And I’m not sure HOW they did it without those crystallized rose petals!  Perhaps it’s the addition of the Lychee or the overall superior ingredients.  Whatever it is…I’m truly GRATEFUL!

Rose Marzipan Black Tea from Stylin’ Tea Blends smells like a bakey-black tea with cardamom and rose.  The flavor is sweet, bakey, floral, spicy-like-baked good spices, and fruity!  All flavor ratios are ideally in tact!  Nothing overpowers the others!  If I had 3 thumbs…I would give this one ‘3 thumbs up’!
