Count me in! Thank you for your generosity. I made what I think will be a great iced tea blend:
Black tea/lemon verbena/peppermint/strawberries/pomegranate seeds/pomegranate/blackberry

Also looking for the Sparrow Tongue yellow tea….

You are very welcome and your blend does sound like it will be amazing iced! Very refreshing for that summer heat :) The Sparrow Tongue yellow tea is divine, truly a tea to be sipped and savored slowly.

I should have put what I ordered, too! I’m calling it Winter Jasmine White:
White tea
Jasmine flowers
Nutmeg
Cacao nibs
Hazelnuts
The idea being that I adore white tea esp. with jasmine, but might like a “warmer” blend for fall and winter (and I don’t like ginger, and didn’t want it to go over the line into the realm of “spicy”). We’ll see what happens.

I actually turned down an offer from Ovation staffer Melanie to add some jasmine pearls to up the jasmine flavor, because I am concerned about how jasmine will blend with the other flavors. But I am pretty darn impressed with the offer, esp. since I ordered at midnight on a Saturday night and got her offer in my e-mail minutes later!

I’m also trying some of their Cherry Mint Mojito, which looks like it would be REALLY good iced.

Chocolate, jasmine, hazelnut, and white tea- what an interesting combo!

I was scared of figs for the longest time, but I think Figs, brown sugar, and Cheesecake would go great together. Maybe with ginger next time?

@Ovation Tea: What grade is your matcha? Is it organic?

Our matcha is ceremonial grade, but it is not organic.

Hi,

Please don’t take this as a complaint but I just thought you’d want to know. I got my tea today and it was supposed to be an Apple Pie Honeybush, but was instead an Apple Pie Black tea. I’m not looking for a replacement, just didn’t know if you needed to change any processes.

It smells awesome (I haven’t tasted it yet) and I’m definitely going to drink it. Thanks again for giving me the chance to make my own blend. If it tastes as good as it smells, I’ll definitely want to do that many many more times. :)

Cofftea said

Definitely looking forward to your review as I personally prefer black tea over honeybush.

Kristin said

hopefully i’ll get a chance to review it tomorrow. I bring black teas to work so that I can drink them during the day, rather than at night which would keep me awake.

Oh man… I just thought of this… wouldn’t it be awesome if they had a decaf black base! There are never good decaf flavors, except HS Vanilla Comoro.

Cofftea said

YES! I hate that a lot of dessert flavors are not actually camellia sinensis. The assumption that just because you want a dessert you also want a caffeine free, or worse, a tisane really bugs me.
