White Thunder from The Love Tea Company. . . . .

What a bold and dramatic name for a white tea: White Thunder.  So many white teas get paired with desserts, like ice cream flavors or berries, so I was intrigued to try out this flavor just from the brash name alone.  Besides, it doesn’t hurt that this tea is from Love Tea, one of our ChariTea companies.  Learn more here. The White Thunder blend features white tea, peony, spearmint, and peppermint.  I brewed it both hot and iced, and preferred the flavors chilled.  There’s something about drinking an iced mint tea, like Moroccan Mint, that just feels best suited over Read More

Just Perfect Peony White Tea from Just.Organic.Tea.

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  White Where to Buy:  Just.Organic.Tea Tea Description: Find your “Zen Moment” with this perfect cup of premium organic white tea. Taster’s Review: It seems like it’s been a while since I’ve had a pure, unadulterated White Peony tea.  It’s such a lovely tea to enjoy in the evening, because it tastes lighter and it doesn’t leave me feeling overstimulated the way a black tea does.  I know that there has been a lot of debate over the caffeine content in the different types of tea, but what I know from the years of experience I’ve had drinking Read More

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Black Where to Buy:  Amazon Trading Ingredients: Camellia Sinensis with Red Pigments (Red Tea) with natural Peony Flavor. Learn more about Amazon Trading here. Taster’s Review: I am usually a little put off by the prospect of trying a bagged and/or sacheted tea, because let’s face it, loose leaf is better.  It just is.  However, I do try to go into the experience of trying a new to me sacheted tea with an open mind.  And so far, the teas that I’ve tried from Eden Grove have been impressive – and all have been sacheted teas!  Eden Read More
