Tea #31 from Considering a new TTB
This is another company that I’ve been meaning to place an order with, Dr Jim introduced me to them in another TTB I was a part of last year and I fell in love with several of their teas. This is one I haven’t had a chance to try yet and ended up being exactly what I was looking for this morning. I’ve been craving something sweet and this has a sweetness to it that tastes almost like peaches. I may consider ordering some of this in the future, I really enjoyed it.
Tea #30 from Considering a new TTB
Before the TTB I had never heard of wei-chuan, i’m always excited to try new to me companies. This tea had a sweet, almost peach, fruit flavor to it. It isn’t nearly as bold as I like my oolongs, but it wasn’t bad at all. This is the kind of tea I could see myself picking up at the Asian market if I’ve run out of tea while I’m on the road.
Tea #29 from Considering a new TTB
This is the last caffeine free option in the TTB. It’s an interesting combination of ingredients, I wasn’t sure how I felt about the pink peppercorns in the blend, but they don’t seem to lend much of a flavor. The florals are present, without being soapy with a slightly tart flavor from the rose hips. Overall, this isn’t a bad tea to end my day with, but it isn’t something I’m likely to order for myself since there are so many chamomile blends that I prefer over this one.
Tea #28 from Considering a new TTB
I think it’s a bit misleading to have oolong in the name of this tea because it is mostly rooibos. I could only find a small amount of oolong hidden among the various nuts and candied fruit pieces; then again that seems to be the trend with teavana. Flavorwise this tasted mostly of apples and cinnamon, which wasn’t at all what I was expecting, although it did have a slight nuttiness to it. It may not have been what I was expecting and could certainly benefit from a more descriptive name, I did really enjoy this tea.
This tea won’t be continuing on
