From Handmade Tea

November Bouquet is an interesting and delightful blend that begins with a base of black tea from Fujian, China. It packs a ton of fruity and chocolatey notes with a hint of damp leaves. A combo of rose petals and jasmine flowers are added to give a beautiful floral sweetness and add an incredibly fresh flavor to the blend. Lemon Balm adds traditional lemony citrus flavor with grass-like notes. It is smooth and subtle enough to fully round-out the blend.

This is my first shipment from Handmade Tea, and it’s delicious!

I’ve tried this a couple of different ways now: first, given Caleb’s suggestion of a 4 min steep. The rose and jasmine are really strong with that method and it reminded me a lot of Lupicia’s Yume blend. What made it stand out compared to Yume was the hint of lemon in the background.
The second way I’ve tried this (and my favorite) is with short subsequent steeps, starting around 15 seconds. The smell is lightly chocolate-like and floral, and the lemon balm really pops with the short steeps!

I got the mini subscription to Handmade Tea, and this arrived in two small tins. I gave one to my brother-in-law and he wrote the other day to say he loves this too!

Can’t wait to see what comes in the mail in December. :)

That really sounds like a tea I would love! Guess I will have to look up the Yume blend since this one isn’t available outside the subscription. Too bad!

Curse you for reminding me they exist! Someday they’ll ship to Canada….someday

Claire

Oh no, I’ve been cursed! D:
Hopefully Caleb will extend the company to Canada some day, I think it’s a great concept, and now I know it’s great tea too.

Sil

That would be awesome…

It really is a great tea. I feel like some kind of neanderthal when I drink it, because it’s just too nice for the likes of me.

I got a tin of this in the mail this afternoon and I’ve already had to brew five cups—three for me, and two for my mom, who just had to have some as soon as she smelled it.

Dry, the floral scent is big and sweet, which is complemented very nicely by prominent lemon balm. I was afraid the brew might be TOO lemony, but the results were mellow and wonderful.

I love the balance of black tea to floral/citrus notes. The flavor is bright without being sour, floral without being perfumey, strong without being too bold or astringent. Overall, a perfectly billowy and sweet cup with a velvet mouthfeel.

I’m not big into “flowery” sorts of tea, but this makes for a very nice post-yoga-workout brew. The lemon balm gives it a sort of cleansing feeling and overall is very relaxing. The flowery-ness is apparent, but not in an overwhelming way, just enough to be soothing and fragrant.

Tea #37 from Considering a new TTB
Spring is the wrong time of year for me to be drinking floral teas, but I had to try this since I’ve never tried anything from Handmade Tea. I love the combination of Jasmine and Rose, they were well balanced and managed to be floral without reminding me of potpourri. I’m not a huge fan of lemon balm, but it paired well with the floral flavors in the blend. It added a subtle lemon flavor that even as a citrus hater I found enjoyable.
