Pear Green White from Mahamosa. . . . .

I was interested in the name of the blend since it implied a white and green tea base. The label of the packaging indicated that it contained “China Sencha, Lung Ching, green Yunnan and Pai Mu Tan” – quite a few teas! Looking at the blend, there was also a nice sprinkle of rosebuds and mango cubes. The dry blend had a nice pear aroma that became grassier after steeping.

The liquor was smooth and pale yellow with very mild astringency. The green and white tea blend base came through and had a very clean taste. There was a slight sweetness at the tail end of the sip, which may have come from the mango cubes or pineapple flakes.

This would be a nice tea if you want to unwind and relax with a book or movie!

Here’s the scoop!

Spritz of Glitz from Tea & Tins

Whenever I’m looking around for a new tea to add to my collection, if I see sprinkles-its like I can’t click fast enough to get that tea blend into my cart!

This is exactly what happened when I came across Spritz of Glitz, a tea from a company that I’m really starting to enjoy.  This tea is chalk full of pear and peach pieces and silver and gold balls all on a bed of green tea. I’m also noticing a few rose petals here and there.  Quite a striking dry leaf mix for sure.

First whiff of the dry leaves from Spritz of Glitz and there is for sure a stone fruit vibrant note.   There is also an almost candy fragrance as well.  I wasn’t so sure about the candy notes but I really wanted those stone fruits to come across after steeping.

Brewed up by the recommended parameters on the pkg-176F and allowed to steep for about 3 minutes, a gorgeous golden liquor awaited me to try. Took my first sip and was completely taken over by those ripe stone fruit notes I was really yearning for along with a buttery richness and slight vegetal note. This tea really works well and doesn’t come across as candy while enjoying.  Which I was afraid of.  Just the right amount of fruitiness paired with a rich green base.  I could almost compare this tea to having an almost wine like feel with the peach and pear notes.

If you enjoy flavored green teas, this one may be right up your alley!

I came across Tea and Tins while perusing the web for a new flavored tea company to try.  Tea and Tins was created by Lise because she was frustrated with the lack of original tea tins in America.  They offer quite an array of unique tins, which I am now a proud owner of, and teas that appear to be fresh and unique. With flavored tea offerings like PB & J, Hot Mama, and Thunderstorm-this company has my interests peaked.  I instantly put together an order.

A really lovely solid green flavored tea that is perfect for anytime.  I would love to try this tea as a cold brew and plan on doing just that. This may be a tea I ask Santa for more of this upcoming Christmas!
