Yum Yum Yum. Mountain Herbs has a brilliant aroma and flavour. It really does smell like your hiking in the Mountains. Fresh and vibrant.

It is like the ultimate cold fighter. Had a super bad cold last winter, one of those colds when your downing bottles of cold meds and nothings working. Mountain Herbs with a touch of honey did.

I needed to add some honey to this tea, I tasted a lot of eucalyptus and fennel which for me that isn’t really a wonderful flavour, but honey made it taste yummy.

All time FAVORITE TEA!

Holy Hannah, this tea is fantastic hot.
The raspberry is everywhere. In the smell, taste and sight. In every scoop of this tea you can see the raspberry bits.
It’s a really nice Oolong base, and the raspberry tastes like you just picked it off the branch. Naturally sweet, it doesn’t require any sweetener.

BEST COLD!

I really didn’t like Summer Meadow as a hot tea, but cold, oh my god! It’s fantastic on hot days when your doing yard work.

I brew it hot the day before, brewing it at double strength and stick it in the fridge to chill, adding enough sweetener to approx. 1 tsp per cup. The next day you pour it in a half full glass and add ice. So fantastic, slightly sweet but mostly from the natural fruit sugars, very fruity a little lemon-y, which is great when your working up a sweat. Since you added ice to a strong brew you don’t have to worry about the flavor diluting horribly.

Its a wonderful alternative to powdered ice tea mix.

drank Chai Apricot by Tea Desire

This one is a must try at least once!

I love the warm spice of Chai, but you rarely see it as a green tea, so I figured what the heck.

I’m not actually a fan of apricot or ginger but this was pretty yummy. Warm and spicy, but fruity undertones calming it down. The Apricot avoids letting the spice get overwhelming. But at the same time the Apricot doesn’t steal the show from the chai.

You want to make sure you don’t boil the water. I found that the chai didn’t hide the bitter flavour green tea gets if you burn them with boiling water. That attempt was just weird… spicy bitter blah.

But if made right super yummy!

Bio

I have always loved tea. There is nothing better than curling up under a blanket by a fire, with a good book or a good movie, and a good cup of tea.

On the flip side, it’s a blast finding fruity and citrus-y teas to ice for those hot outdoor days.

I’m a fan of pretty much all types of teas, it’s the flavour that I tend to be picky about.
