From New Mexico Tea Company


Is there any other street in the United States that conjures up as many exotic images as does Bourbon Street in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter? From Voodoo to Jazz and Burlesque to Mardi Gras, Bourbon is the street where anything can, and does, happen. (Don’t believe it? Pick up a copy of A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole – considered by some to be the most accurate depiction of the French Quarter ever written.And it’s hilarious!) Or if you prefer, take a trip to New Orleans and experience the street for yourself.

Rooibos, calendula petals, almond slices, natural vanilla flavors

A sample from Queen of Tarts. I really enjoyed this one. I’ve had a difficult day at work (it may be time to look for a new job…), and I came home tired, irritated, and in need of something soothing. This tea fit the bill perfectly. It’s relatively straightforward — just vanilla flavoured rooibos as far as I can discern. It’s a good one, though. The vanilla is sweet and creamy, very natural tasting (vanilla pod rather than vanilla essence), and the rooibos is slightly woody, maybe very slightly nutty. It’s a bit like drinking vanilla ice cream. Smooth, delectable, moreish. It smells good, too. There isn’t a lot to say about this one, except that it’s very pleasant, calming, and easy to drink. Some days need a tea like this, and today was one of them.

Exactly what flavor do Calundula petals impart on tea? They’re in a ton of the flavoreds that I have – Weeping Angel, Rhubard + Custard, Carrot Cupcake, this one, and on and on – but what do they do? Do they add any flavor or just look pretty? It’s a great mystery to me.

Anyways, I’m sampling this one thanks to QueenofTarts. The steeped smell is that of honeyed vanilla. It actually reminds me more of honeybush than rooibos – sort of a sweet, woody scent.

I took a sip of it plain at around 5 minutes, but it didn’t taste much. So I added some brown rock sugar and let it steep for another minute or so. The taste is still mild, but it’s better. Again it’s reminding me of honeybush. The taste is honeyed, with kind of a vaguely syrupy quality. I’m finding that the vanilla is noticeable more in the aftertaste than in the sip itself.
