drank Ginger by Yogi Tea

I love ginger, and this tisane delivers in a big way. A big ol’ “I feel my gums stinging” kind of way, which is great if you have eaten a big meal, have a stomach ache etc. But this isn’t a take it with you and a book to bed kind of cup.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

My boyfriend and I call this sleepy tea for good reason. Despite being busy, sometimes anxious people, this tea always relaxes us and helps us nod off when we’re ready to wind down.

I’m generally not fond of white teas, this was no exception. The plum and rose give this one a very sweet aroma in the tin and cup, but the flavor isn’t well balanced. I’ve tried adjusting the temperature of the water, but to no avail. It’s fruity with tartness that isn’t awful, but lacks all the clean refreshing flavor of a green or white tea. It just becomes kind of a vaguely sweet tart mess of flavors for me. Which is alright iced, but otherwise, not so much

drank Gypsy Rose by Zhena's Gypsy Tea

This is one of the best on the shelf rose teas I’ve tried. It’s available as either a loose leaf tea, or in bags. The bags are convenient, and do steep quite well. However I found the rose came through in the aroma better with the loose leaf, probably because there were larger pieces of the petals. The flavor is smooth, and the rose is strong and softens the bitterness of the black tea very nicely.

This is a favorite for me. I used to drink it with my mom on our back patio, and visit with her about all manner of things. It is rich, sweet, citrus-y, and smells wonderfully spicy. I like it very hot, with honey if my throat is sore.

drank Lover's Cup by Chado Tea Room

This tea is delicious. Normally I find white teas a bit thin in flavor, but the floral fullness of this one really makes it memorable. It also makes a nice iced tea with a smooth flavor and wonderful aroma.

Sweet, interesting and worth buying just to smell it. I find that the smell is most of the appeal though. The cup doesn’t quite capture the nuance of it, but is quite good.

Sweet, rich, and delicious. The aroma is delightful with a bit of peachiness. With milk it is a real treat.

This tea is one of my favorite cups in the morning. It’s not quite a black or green tea, but something in the middle with an interesting flavor that is smooth with a bit of an astringent bite.
