I’m really enjoying this. Our autumn here in the Pacific Northwest has been kind of an odd one thus far – we’ve have next to NO rainfall for quite some time (there was a day or two where there were very light drizzles, but nothing at all what I’d call RAIN), and the temperature for the most part has been warm. A few days here and there I’ve felt the need to don a sweater when I go outside, but, they seem few and far between.
But today, it is somewhat blustery. Chilly, but not incredibly cold, but the wind makes that chill feel even colder. So it seems a good day for a warm mug full of this Spice Blend from Tiger Spring Tea.
This is very much like a Christmas Spice blend … and in fact, when I visited the website to learn more about this tea, the tab on my browser says “Spice Blend Christmas Tea” so I think at one time the company called this their Christmas blend. The strongest notes come from the Ceylon, the orange and the clove. It tastes a bit like a good mulled spice cider … replacing the apple with Ceylon tea and a touch of orange.
It’s not quite chai like, although, I did categorize it as a chai, because the spices are similar to chai. It’s more even toned to me than a chai would be – which in my opinion are usually more aggressively spiced. This offers warm, comforting notes rather than a strong, solid spice flavor.
Very enjoyable, just what I needed today.
This is really good. The peppermint aroma is strong and exhilarating – FRESH! And while the flavor is equally as strong, there is a smoothness to the flavor too, almost a buttery-like quality to the background. It tastes crisp and refreshing and clean, and it’s very soothing especially after those BBQ ribs that I had for dinner. This is relaxing to my tummy … just what I needed.
An excellent pure peppermint. I’m sending the rest to my SororiTea Sister, because I know how much she loves peppermint!
I received a box from my girl LiberTEAs today and here’s the first one I am jumping into! Woot!
The is a CRAZY-Intense scented EG, my friends!
And now I’m putting my tasters to the test…
Floral, FRESH Bergamot, a very nice EG flavor, and more FRESH Flowers!
It’s highly flavored but not as intense as the aroma and I totally agree with LiberTEAs…that everything about this is FRESH!!! This is Cream of the Crop, right here!
I really like this Moroccan Mint. It is sweet and vibrant, soothing and refreshing. I had my first cup of it hot, and then decided I wanted a pitcher of it iced before I sent the rest of it to my SororiTea Sister (she does love mint), so that’s what I’ll be drinking tomorrow afternoon.

I am revisiting this tea today, having one more pot of it, so that I can send the rest to my SororiTea Sister.
Today it tastes a little “stiffer” … a little more astringent, not quite as seamless between the tea and bergamot. It isn’t quite as smooth as I remember yesterday’s cup tasting, I can even taste some bitterness, and I used the exact same parameters as yesterday.
However, I did just brush my teeth, which has everything to do with it. In a mouth with less residual zesty peppermint I suspect that this would be every bit as stunning as it was yesterday. So, if you’ve just brushed your teeth and are about to sip on this tea, I suggest that you drink a glass of water first to cleanse the palate of the left-over toothpaste taste.
Nice! This has such a delicious, natural flavor. The black tea is robust but does not overwhelm, the bergamot tastes fresh and it has a pleasing contrast between sweet and tangy. The bergamot here seems sweeter than in Earl Grey teas… it’s not a heavy bergamot note, the bergamot and black tea meld together seamlessly. A bit of astringency toward the tail that cleanses the palate, imparting a floral aftertaste.
