This is my favorite of the blackcurrant teas I’ve tried. Such a rich and happy flavor. There are many many many black tea flavors out there. But of all that I have tried so far the Blackcurrant black tea has my number one spot. Blackcurrant is a species of berry resident to central and northern Europe and northern Asia. It is a dark purple color and very high in vitamin C.

There are a few tropical hints but not enough to overpower the sweet and slightly nutty taste of the basic Rooibos flavor. It only needs to be steep for 5 – 7 minutes and once done it’s very soothing. I’m actually having trouble writing this post because it’s so relaxing. Picture yourself in your favorite place with your preferred drink of choice and you have the flavor of this tea.

I also suggest you try a Rooibos Latte if you ever get the chance. The warm milk froth mixed with the Rooibos froth is absolutely amazing.

Amazing how different Earl Grey can be from one company to another. I tried this one and thought I went to Earl Grey heaven. The smell is amazing, the taste is amazing. I need to get more!

I steep it for about 3 minutes and it was fine. I’ve steeped it over 5 before and it turned out to be really bitter. But I think you need at least 2 minutes to get the pomegranate to release its flavor. This is a tea I often see at World Market. They seem to have a unique selection of tea there.

What a pleasant flavor. I was expecting something mediocre but the taste is actually quite good. About 3 minutes of steep time.

This tea is not kiddin around. It really will put you to sleep. I mean, it won’t knock you out but if you find yourself over thinking a lot of things it helps calm your mind. Oh and don’t worry the flavor is good too.

Honestly, I don’t fancy the flavor. It doesn’t come off as earthy like most green teas do. It reminds me more of green beans. However it isn’t so bad that it’s going to sit in my cabinet. I’m going to try different steep times and see if that does anything.
Many people, including myself, think of it at first as a green tea. As I looked into the background on good old Wikipedia I found out that it is actually in two classifications and some people only classify it as a post fermented tea. The whole history and information on the tea is quite interesting if you have time to go and read it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pu-erh_tea

I’ve heard of veggie drinks but never veggie tea. One of the main ingredients is hathawariya, which translates to Wild Asparagus. Next is Lemongrass and then wild cherry. The smell is really relaxing. The taste is better then I thought it would be. This would be a good night time tea to calm ones senses.

Okay taste. Light smell, nothing special though. And yea I do actually feel less stressed out.

Ready for yet another tea oddity? This one is a bit more down to earth then other teas but it still has a few ingredients that I think will make your eyebrows raise. Centella Asiatica (Gotukola) is its name. Having an interesting background is its game. There is quite a bit that I could on and talk about with this herb, both its good and bad things but I figure if you guys are really interested you can do that on your own. It’s a short article so don’t worry. http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/gotu-kola-000253.htm

And yet another TJMaxx find. Lately I’ve only been looking but not buying anything from the aisle of tea just because I knew if I kept doing that I would end up with more tea then I could ever drink… And it doesn’t help when you pick up a box of tea and don’t realize till later that it contains 50 tea bags…

Anyway, not only does it have a pleasing scent but the taste is wonderful. It’s light enough that people who don’t like strong teas can drink it. However, it has a strong enough flavor that heavy tea drinkers that like lots of flavor will be pleased. I know that sounds weird but that is the best description I could think of.

Tea. Like coffee and many other things, is basically just flavored water. But don’t you tell any tea or coffee drinkers that.

I’m willing to try out any type of tea, except of course the ones they suggest nursing mothers to not drink. (Like ginseng tea… and I love ginseng sadface)

The cute little baby in the picture is my daughter, Athena. She loves to stick out her tongue.
