drank Silencio Andino by Inti Zen

Green tea with camomile and orange peel. I can not smell the orange, but it is lovely as it is. Camomile flavour is very strong, green tea less strong. I find it a really pure kind of drink.

We recently got some of Inti Zen teas in the Ecuadorian supermarket. I was so excited! Sadly we only got the box that had a sample of each flavor and the chai, and they no longer have the tea in stock. This one was pretty good. : ) My favorite was one that had green tea and melon. I wish I could remember what it was called…

Oh, I never saw that one for sale, must try to find it – it was available here (in Portugal) a couple years ago, then it disappeared, and then it is back again (not a lot of tea drinkers here, I guess, shops sometimes treat tea has being trendy gift stuff). Silencio Andino is a re-buy for me, I really like it. The sample pack sounds like a good idea as well! I am pretty curious aboutt their flavoured mate.

There are also very few tea drinkers in Ecuador. That would explain why this tea hasn’t been back in stock (considering that it has to be imported). The flavored mate was pretty good, definitely worth trying. But the spot light was the melon. The rose earl grey also made me pretty happy.

Ah, I will keep it in mind, if I ever see those. I got this (which i liked very much) and two others, patagonia bee (honey and cocoa) and don juan (red fruits and dulce de leche. so they say. Not that i can spot it) which I did not like so much.

I just commented on your Don Juan post. I agree completely on the lack of dulce de leche. Sad because it is one of my favorite flavors. I know I tried Patagonia Bee, but it apparently didn’t leave a lasting impression because I can’t remember what I thought of it.

Patagonia Bee for me tasted exactly like honey lipbalm – to my nose, artificial “honey scent” rather than what real honey tasted like. Don Juan, meh, I just could not get it. But I might have just bad luck at picking the flavours – and I do love this silencio andino.

Profile

Bio

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky. I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am trying to make sure …

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres,Thé-o-Dor and Yumchaa.
