drank Thé des Anges by Nina's Paris
17 tasting notes

I was lucky to have come across this at HomeGoods. Had never heard of Nina’s, but upon looking to see what a stellar brand it was, went back to get whatever flavors were offered—-so glad I did. Having this tea today, iced, with lunch. I steeped yesterday, 3-4 minutes. I knew when I picked this up that I should want to try it as an iced tea, and boy is it good. I only added a touch of sweetener to the quart I made, but likely doesn’t need any. While steeping, it had a strong honey scent, along with the strawberry, and not too heavy on the vanilla. This will be a summer favorite. I will try it hot, but will likely save especially for iced tea. Very true strawberry flavor.

Flavors: Fruity, Honey, Strawberry, Vanilla

Boiling 3 min, 45 sec 4 tsp 32 OZ / 946 ML

I guess I had better go to HomeGoods!

The oldest memory I can recall about tea—for many family gatherings, we would travel to New Orleans for 70+ extended family members, and we would always go by Martins Wine Cellar (not so large back then). I may have been about 12 or so. I picked out this cute little box of Ashby’s tea, that had all variety of little teapots on the sachets. I loved picking each little one to try. (I think at this point, I decided I did not like Assam or Darjeeling!) Many years later, I picked up a variety box, perhaps yamamotoyama, and fell in love with Genmaicha, and started really expanding my tea tastes.
Now, I have a cupboard (too) full of tea, and it seems to be an obsession! So, I believe I am in good company here for a sympathetic ear. I am not well versed in the finer points of tea, but I enjoy learning, exploring—and drinking!
So, my tastes thus far: I seem to like genmaicha, china white, flavored teas/earl greys. Pretty sure at this point I haven’t been liking rooibos (one exception so far), mate’, too much dark berry, or most chai, or jasmine.
