So, yesterday I got tea packages from Meghann and seykayay.
Today I picked up my order from David’s Tea at the post office, then got home to find my order from Sanctuary T in my mailbox.
So far, it’s been a really good mail week!
You might be asking why I’m having this and not one of my brand new teas. Well, the answer is two-fold: after this pot, I’ve got two bags left until I can decupboard it. And, well…I’ve no idea which of my new teas to start with. Really, absolutely no clue. All I know is that my real-life cupboard is needing rearranging/expanding. Especially since I know of 2 more tea orders that should be working their way towards me…
Needing something sweet right now, and this is it. The caramel, vanilla, and spices blend perfectly with the rooibos. Scent still reminds me of a sugar cookie baked with wildflowers…hmm, maybe I should bake tonight.
Bumping up the rating on this a bit. It tastes better everytime I have it.
The bag smells like a cross between wildflowers and sugar cookies. Sounds strange, but it works quite well. When brewed, smell is more like sweet caramel. It’s a very light dessert tea, naturally sweet. The vanilla and caramel are about equal in their intensity. This is my first tea from Good Earth; I’ll definitely be trying more.
Brewed for 10 minutes.
The smell of the cinnamon while steeping reminded me of big red gum (which I don’t like) so I went for a shorter steeping time. I didn’t realize we were out of milk until I finished making it so I simply put extra honey in.
It’s good, but I don’t think I’ll get it again. (Unless the milk tones down the cinnamon and brings out the other spices, I can’t really taste any of the others. Cinnamon is good but if I wanted cinnamon tea that’s what I’d be drinking.)
[May update later when I’ve gotten some milk.]
I had to sweeten this a little but I think I may have steeped it a little much for this particular brand. I’ll have to have another cup of tea to make sure [:)]. Anyway, this is fairly good. Not my favourite earl grey but, for a bagged tea, it’s more than acceptable. It does have a definite citrus taste (not too strong) and the bergamot taste is a little stronger, in my opinion, than the Twinings Earl Grey.
I found this tea to be quite excellent! It is delicate, tasty, does not get bitter through the duration of drinking. I really enjoy this tea. It has a well balanced flavor profile, you get the essence of Jasmine with a bright, clean and clear taste of green tea without the astringency. I am anxious to try this brand’s other offerings. I would recommend this tea as an “everyday” green tea for the Jasmine green tea lover; as compared to the Jasmine teas I have recently reviewed, Steven Smith Teamaker’s Jasmine offerings are more for elegant dining because of the quality of the tea and the amount of Jasmine used to make such premium products.
Good Earth Tea products are for the everyday, health-conscience, environmentally-conscience consumer. I will be purchasing their other flavors in the near future. I do highly recommend this tea and this brand.
