Spiced Mulled Wine by Simpson and Vail. . . .

I steeped this tea for 3 minutes at approximately boiling temperature, with one teaspoon per cup of water. Looking at the tea leaves I see bits of orange peel among them, as well as blue flower petals. This is a nicely scented blend, although it doesn’t really smell like what I imagined mulled wine would be like (I’ve never actually tried mulled wine though so maybe that’s why).  My first sniffs did detect a sort of depth that hinted at pu-erh, though, although it doesn’t actually have pu-erh in it.

Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea by New Mexico Tea Company

I steeped 1 tsp of this tea for 5 minutes in one cup of 212 degree water. First of all, this tea isn’t kidding when it says “hot.” (Currently I’m able to smell the cinnamon flavor through the bag even though I double-bagged it, which means it has about the same strength as lapsang souchong).

Pootea Tang Tea from Modest Mix

TeaEqualsBliss’s Review: First I have to say that this tea company cracks me up but then again I tend to have a twisted sense of humor!  Pootea Tang Tea from Modest Mix is the first of what I hope is MANY of their teas I will sip on! As an individual my language can be quite colorful so I appreciate the badassery behind the product descriptions, however, since this site wants to remain PG-13 some of what we put here on the site may be altered a tad. Pootea Tang Tea from Modest Mix makes me laugh, smile, and enjoy Read More
