I cannot get enough of this tea! It’s like drinking a liquefied orange creamsicle. More notes later….Off to work!
Update: My parents had visited Ohio Tea Co recently and grabbed a pound of this for themselves. My mother gave me a small sample to allow me to try. I must admit that, while not liking rooibos teas, I find this one to be appetizing nonetheless. There seems to be more of the orange creamsicle taste on the tongue, rather than that rooibos taste (wood?). I’m definitely going to head to OTC and grab a few ounces of this on payday, plus a few other tea samples, to take down to NC for my mother-in-law.
I’ve had this tea for a couple of weeks now and finally had the chance to try the sample that I received the last time I stopped into the shop. I must first note that there are plenty of teas that I don’t like from the shop; however, there are also the select few that I truly devote to purchasing every time I’m there…
Notes: Smells like paint & tastes like sticks on the the ground in Autumn after a few days of rain. I will say that there is a lot of potential of this being enjoyable, but it’s gone stale and has a weird funk to it (aside from the wet sticks). I cannot identify the taste, but it’s something which lingers in the aftertaste…
Flavors: Wet wood
Western brewed this at 200 F & steeped for 3 minutes.
I usually stay away from the black tea blends from Ohio Tea Co. (sister to NM Tea Co); however, their Lapsang/Russian Caravan is quite lovely. There is a nice smooth smokiness to this blend that makes it different than other smoked teas like this that I’ve had in the past. This reminds me of sitting around a campfire on the cool Fall evening. I’ve started to run low on this blend, although, I’m quite fortunate enough to have the ability to drive 5 miles down the road and pick more up soon. However, I’m trying to drink the remaining teas from the last purchase before acquiring more anytime soon.
Flavors: Campfire, Smoke
This herbal tea works like a charm for me when I can’t sleep. In fact, it’s so powerful (at least for me), that I feel almost woozy after I drink it all. I sleep just as well as with medication. Truly amazing, and to top it off, it’s delicious.
Flavors: Bitter, Flowers, Mint, Sweet
This is a wonderful guayusa blend, and the one that introduced me to this particular plant. It has the perfect balance of flavors, and the grassy guayusa is complemented well by the lemongrass and cinnamon. This is one of my night time favorites, even with the caffeine content.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Grass, Lemon, Lemongrass
My youngest daughter’s favorite tea, hands down, and one of mine as well. I am glad Ohio Tea Co. and New Mexico Tea Co. are doing their own blending. This tea is a real winner, and I am a huge fan.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Grass, Licorice, Mint, Sweet
Quite possibly the best fruit-flavored tea I’ve ever had, and one I enjoy intensely. The cherry flavor doesn’t overpower the Japanese-style green tea underneath, and it’s very well balanced. Very, very good.
Flavors: Cherry, Rose, Sweet, Vegetal
By far one of my favorites from my regional favorite tea blender Ohio Tea Company. This is bold, sweet, smack-your-face cinnamon flavor with a base of high quality black tea. I always put a bit of demerara sugar in, but it’s not really needed. It’s a sweet tasting tea on its own. It’s a tea I intend to always have on-hand.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove, Honey
For the past few days, I’ve been trying to overcome this horrid cold. I’ve felt miserable and NEEDED something with a lot of spice and/or citrus-y notes to it. Ohio Tea Company’s Orange Spice Black has been exactly what I needed. This has been my to-go-to for the past three days. Despite the amount of caffeine in it, I still manage to become relaxed and sleepy while drinking it—then again, I’m sick and tired, so anything can put me to sleep. Ha-ha.
The tea is very sweet; it has a nice refreshing orange taste and the cinnamon isn’t too overpowering. I’ve had tea blends that had spices and orange flavors within the tea, but weren’t mixed well—the spices had a tendency to overpower the tea, or not have much bite. However, this tea has an even ratio of spice and orange. I like the way the orange and black tea notes are the first flavors that hit the palette, and then the spice kicks in at the back of the throat. It’s definitely a good tea to drink on a cold rainy day; or even when you’re under the weather.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Orange
