Yum yum yummy!! These flavors go so well together. This is my first honeybush tea. So glad I tried it. It will be a wonderful late night tea.

Sunday afternoons are my favorite time of the week. Today, I watched The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe while drinking cups of rosy lee (as Beaver puts it in the movie – nice Cockney way of saying tea). It was delightful.

I picked up this tea at a little shop called the Golden Leaf in Tipp City, Ohio. They had a variety of loose leaf teas and this one caught my eye. It definitely has a fruity flavor. I haven’t tried many white teas, so I can’t compare. Even though fruit flavored teas are not my favorite, this one is pretty good. I think I’d enjoy it more iced.

This tea is fantastic! I love floral teas. This is like a cross between Jasmine and Rose in flavor with a bit of a honey flavor in the aftertaste. YUM! Steepster is such a good/bad influence on me.

drank Coconut Oolong by Zen Tea
205 tasting notes

A big THANK YOU to Zen Tea for this delicious sample. It’s so smooth and the coconut flavor is like drinking milk from a fresh coconut. The oolong is mild and allows the coconut to really shine. This is a tea I want to have around at all times. Looking forward to re-steeping it for another yummy cup! Hoping it motivates me to get my much needed house cleaning done.

The second steeping tastes as amazing as the first! Very impressed. It could be an all day tea :)

This tea has a great story, so I must tell.

Visiting the Dragonfly Artisan Tea Cottage in Sylvania, Ohio was one of the most delightful things I have done in a long time. One of my good friends planned this trip as my 2011 Christmas present and we finally found the time to do it. The food was delightful and this was the tea we ordered to share. It is my first pu-erh tea and was pleasantly surprised about how much I loved it!! I couldn’t get enough :) It has a nice earthy flavor. I’m interested to try other pu-erhs to see how it compares. While we enjoyed our shared slice of baked today carrot cake, when tasting the tea, I could really taste the floral not of the chrysanthemum. Wow!! Complemented it so well.

Highlight of our experience there was the generosity of the owner who, when asked if I could purchase some of the delicious tea to take home, put about 3 ounces in a bag and gave it to me to take home (NOT purchase, but as a gift) along with a bamboo tea basket. WOW!

It just goes to show how amazing tea people are :)

This week, I have been enjoying starting the day with a dessert tea. I enjoy this tea with a little milk and sugar. It brings a smile to my face :)

This was one of the K cup options at church and I wish I had made a coffee instead. Very disappointed on the flavor in this tea. Weak tea flavor but over powering cardamom/cinnamon flavor that was not pleasant. This was a bad choice for the end of a great tasting tea day :( This is why we need a Steepster app. I could have looked up the reviews before making my final decision :)

It’s my lopsided and biased opinions that K-Cups pretty much ruin the taste of anything.

CupofTree

I can’t stress enough how much we need an app. I can’t believe no one has made one yet! :(

I like some of the K cup coffee options, so I thought I’d give the tea a chance. Sadly, the way a Keurig works does not properly brew tea :(

drank Oolong and Eucommia Bark Tea by Nezha
205 tasting notes

Went to a local restaurant for lunch today and ordered hot tea. They brought out a wooden box with many different bagged tea options. This is the one I chose. I like a good oolong. It is a woody oolong, but clean and fresh flavor. Slightly sweet on its own – no bitterness at all. I wasn’t able to find this company online, so I filled in the info from the package (which I had to take with me so I could log this ;) Found it interesting. So apparently it will make me healthy as well as beautiful and delay senility. BONUS!! Hope I don’t have any weird reactions to the tea :)

Here’s the interesting description:

This product is processed refinedly by modern technology and crafts using a selection of natural materials including genuine Fujian Oolong and Sichuan Eucommia Bark (Cortex Eucommiae). It contains aucubin eucommiol and various kinds of trace elements and vitamins needed by the human body. This product is sweet and fragrant to tastes, with its juice as clear as crystal.

Action: To improve your appearances, to make you healthy and beautiful and to delay senility.

Usage: 2 bags, twice a day to be taken after being infused in hot boiled water. Taken continually for a long time it will give you much comfort.

200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec

Interesting! I had to wiki this!

So…does it taste like the bark, itself, the seeds, leaves, or fruit? Or a combo?

Em

I would say the bark. It kind of tastes a bit like what bark smell like, but in a good way. I’m really digging this tea. I might just have to run over and buy the box they have for sale :)

I’m not old enough to worry about the senility thing yet (my husband and son might say differently), but I’m definitely putting it ON THE LIST.

drank Eight Candles by Della Terra Teas

One word for this tea: AMAZING!! This tea is soooo yummy. I purchased it thanks to Azzrian’s review. So glad I did. Marshmallowy goodness. I was so happy that Della Terra restocked yesterday. Picked up 2oz of this and the Candy Cane! My bank account has really suffered this season, but somethings are worth it ;)

I wish Della Terra used Vegan Marshmallows…tear, tear…

Em

I wish they would for you too. Just give up your vegan powers and take a sip :) You get three strikes. (Scott Pilgrim reference, if you’re wondering)
