Coconut Green Tea from LST aka Love Some Tea. . . .

I love green tea, and I love coconut so I was pretty excited to try this tea. It was better than I could have hoped. t’s a smooth green tea with a very slight smoky flavor, and an amazing coconut aroma and flavor. I could drink this delicious tea all day. It’s clean, and decadent. It has that kind of fatty coconut flavor, and I mean that in the best way. The coconut kind of cuts the earthiness of the green tea. I had mine warm and it was a wonderful way to wake up. I have a feeling this Read More

Lupicia

Soleil Levant from Lupicia. . . . .

These Lupicia teabags are wrapped in the most adorably festive wrappers. Little animals partaking in in Christmas festivities adorn each bag and it is delightful. What is not so delightful? The chemical sent of this Soleil Levant tea bag when I removed it from its packaging. Unfortunately that chemical scent carries over to the steeped tea as well. Drinking the tea, I get a muscat flavor first and foremost from the white grapes. That mixes with a pithy citrus which ties in to a bitterness that underlies the whole sip. I think this tea shows potential but using the suggested Read More

Wild Blueberry Green from Fava Tea. . . .

Sometimes it’s nice to go back to basics. There are so many funky and unique tea blends when it comes to flavored tea that sometimes I crave something simple. In this case it’s blueberry green tea. Sencha, gunpowder green, white tea, and elderberry, eucalyptus leaves all come together to form this blend. In truth I was nervous when I saw two ingredients. Can you guess which? Eucalyptus leaves and gunpowder green! Eucalyptus can taste kind of medicinal sometimes and the last time I had gunpowder green tea I thought it tasted and smelled like old cigarette smoke. Weird, I know. Read More

Gunpowder Green Tea from Frontier Co-Op. . . .

I buy almost all of my spices in bulk. It’s so much cheaper. I never realized how much spice companies charge for the jars until I started buying in bulk. Almost every store I’ve ever bought my bulk spices in sells Frontier spices, and I’ve always been happy with the quality. Last week when I was picking up some curry powder, I noticed that the store I was at also had a few Frontier teas in bulk. I figured I should give them a try and see if they are as good as the spices. I decided to try Gunpowder Read More

whitejasmine

White Jasmine from The Cozy Leaf. . . .

I received this as a sample simply labeled “White Jasmine.” I assumed it was a white tea scented with jasmine, but I looked it up on the company website. Good thing, too, because it is actually a blend of jasmine green tea, white tea, heather flowers, and rose petals – all organic, so that’s nice! While it carries a little of the scent of the flowers, it really does not taste anything like jasmine tea to me, white or green! Mostly I just taste green tea. It isn’t a bad tea and it’s great that it is a fully organic Read More
