drank Tranquility by Beleave Teas

You are sitting on a patio. A small stream bubbles to your left as it races to meet a bigger river. Every time I take a sip I picture this scene in Missoula, MT. This tea is very similar to Evening in Missoula or Sunset In Seattle. Tranquil is the best way to describe it regardless of what the name is. The unique blend of ingredients makes it instantly recognizable to anyone who drinks it enough. It’s the perfect drink to calm yourself before bed or good for a cuppa on a stressful work day.

A typical red rooibos. The Rooibos overpowers everything else. Peppermint? Where? I can clearly see the rose petals but the rose flavor is so slight compared with the quantity seen in my metal steeper. It does have a nice smell though.

drank Jasmine by JJ Leaf

Smooth, crisp, and light. A good sencha? base, with light jasmine flavor. Slightly grassy. For a jasmine in a tea bag I was impressed.

A bland green tea. Perhaps its because I had their tea bag version. Perhaps the loose leaf would be better but honestly there were no good green notes to pick up from this one. Drinkable but not something I would get again.

drank Earl Grey Black by Teavana

This is your average, everyday Earl Grey. Nothing special. Good flavors of bergamot and slight lavender.

drank Guava Green by Benjamin Tea

Ran in to Eggsperience to grab some Fig green tea but ot had sadly been discontinued so I figured I’d try this instead.

Truly I wasn’t expecting much but I still hoped. The green base isn’t very strong so it’s somewhat overpowered by the guava crunchy.

drank Jardin Sauvage by Lupicia

With a French word like Sauvage I was very much expecting a black flavored tea of some sort. Not so much. This tea goes quite well with my sandwich. Sweet. Kumquat, citrus, maybe some honey dew? Perhaps this tea is best sipped cold in a garden?

drank Earl Grey by Rykoff Sexton

Wasn’t much info on this one. Really thought this was going to be mediocre but surprisingly it’s quite good. I did luke warm water because I didnt feel like scalding my tongue. The black base could be a bit stronger but the bergamot is light enough that you can still taste it. Slightly fruity aftertaste.

drank Rose Royal by Lupicia

This was a pleasant surprise. I was expecting more earthy and rose flavors but instead was bombarded by fruit and rose. Both in scent and in taste. The fruity essence is quite a bit more then expected.

Sometimes a good cup of tea is just what you need. This tea has a great base. The other flavors work well together. Definitely hints of berries and vanilla. Somewhat woodsy base.

Where to being… well, I’ve been drinking jasmine tea for a long time. It still remains a favorite of mine but I’ve now added any more.

Green teas are my favorite. I like black tea but generally prefer it flavored. I’m finding a new love for oolong. Especially the type that leans more toward green. Whites are nice. Rooibos can be a hit or miss, but honeybush is better. (Golden Honeydew by Lupicia is the best). I don’t mind herbals but it really depends on the ingredients.
