SpicedMulledWine

A Tea for Cold Winter Months. . .Spiced Mulled Wine from Simpson and Vail. . .

A wine tea? That’s a new one. I have seen cocktail-inspired blends. Even beer teas. Never wine. It’s a fun idea though and one I am very excited to try.

Black Currant White Peony from 52Teas

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  White Where to Buy: 52Teas  Tea Description: This tea is really tasty. The white tea is soft and smooth. It has a delicate, sweet flavor and it offers an interesting contrast to the tart and tangy flavor of black currant.  It’s a fairly simple blend – just white tea and black currants – but it tastes great! Learn more about this tea here.  Taster’s Review: I have been on a 52Teas kick lately.  I can’t help it! I love the unique variety of flavors they have and offer. I am currently staring at my maple Cheesecake TieGuan Read More

Taster’s Review: If you haven’t taken a whiff of this tea while its steeping, you are missing out.  This tea had such an amazing sweet candy with an almost berry dessert wine profile. I received this tea bag from a fellow tea pal from Steepster and was excited to try it.  Lupicia has some amazing teas.  With a name like Rose Royal, I just knew this had to be amazing. Read More
