75 Tasting Notes
Enjoying a cup of 7 Treasures this morning after several days without my customary cup first thing in the morning. This tea is perfect for a cool, sunny morning – light, warm, subtly flavored. It grounds me in the moment, which is what the best tea can do, bringing me into my body, my setting, my life. Love it!
Well, after our second warm day in a row, my allergies kicked up big time today, so of course I brewed up a pot of rooibos as soon as I got home from work. It really does make a difference.
In the spring when I’m sneezy, I drink this all day, and it helps to keep the allergies manageable – without the need for otc pills, which I hate. Unfortunately, Teavana has discontinued this rooibos. A shame, because it really is tasty – floral and fruity, but never heavy or artificially ‘flavored’.
I picked up a supply of this late last year after it was discontinued. I have enough left to last me about a week. Then, I’ll have to find another rooibos. Luckily, the Rooibos Tropica is also wonderful and has not been discontinued :)
Drinking Three Kingdoms Mao Feng after replenishing my supply. Still a great everyday green tea with good flavor. Must say though, I may never shop at a Teavana store again. I’m really tired of the hard sell tactics they use…‘accidentally’ measuring more tea than you asked for, pushing one more tea, and one more tea to make their 1 lb. discount, which isn’t that great of a discount (only 10% on already overpriced tea). I like some of their exclusive blends enough that I’ll keep buying them, but I may start buying exclusively online.
