Polka Dot Bikini Organic Puerh from Fraser Tea. . .

The name alone had me with this tea. . .I mean being a lover of all things polka dot and all. . . Polka Dot Bikini Organic Puerh is a wonderful blend of puerh tea, cocoa nibs, orange peel, fennel seeds and a few other ingredients.  A blend that I have had before but never with orange peels that large added in.  I ordered a box of sachets of this tea and a green tea sampler.

Green Tea Chai by Vahdam Teas

Steeped with a heaping tablespoon of leaves at 175 degrees in about 1 cup of water. This tea was a new experience for me! I’ve tried lots of flavored green teas, but never one where the green tea was a substitute for black tea in a chai blend. As a result of this tea, I’ve realized how different these spices are outside of a conventional chai context and how much I take the black tea base for granted in chai blends!
