Tea of the Week for December 25, 2023

I was inspired to create this because one of my customers suggested creating a holiday version of our Graveyard Mist (which is one of our best selling teas) – so I thought – ok, what are some flavors that would go with the soft, malty flavor of the spearmint of Graveyard Mist that would elevate the blend to a great holiday-inspired flavor?

I had a few ideas – but the one that really stuck out to me is Mandarin Orange which is a very traditional stocking stuffer. Santa used to put navel oranges in my family’s stockings (along with a crisp apple & a couple of handfuls of unshelled nuts like walnuts & almonds) rather than Mandarin Oranges, but that’s beside the point. Traditionally, Santa wraps Mandarins in a softly textured paper & puts those in the stockings of some people. Not me, but other people.

I liked the idea of having notes of bright, sweet Mandarins blended with our tried-and-true Graveyard Mist. So I went with it.

I love it! The sweet, juicy notes meld nicely with the cool notes of spearmint. The soft, fluffy marshmallow notes add a smoothness to the cup. Overall, it has a very winter-y spirit to it – this tastes like a holiday tea – but one that is different from your typical orange & clove blend. Different – yes, but different in the best way ever!

This one will only be around for a very limited time, so grab some while you can!

organic ingredients: green teas, spearmint leaves, marshmallow root, dried mandarin & natural flavors.

to brew: shake the pouch to ensure all ingredients are well-incorporated. Use 3g of leaf to 12oz of very hot water (175°F) & allow to steep for 2 minutes. Strain & allow to cool for about 5 minutes. Enjoy!

serving suggestion: this blend is fabulous served hot or iced. I think I prefer it iced (which kind of surprises me whenever I find a tea like that, because generally speaking, I tend to prefer hot teas.) It’s sweet – but not too sweet. It’s refreshing, especially when served iced. It makes a fantastic cold-brew.

This one is so interesting! It definitely tastes like graveyard mist, but fruitier, almost tropical. I might enjoy it even more?? It’s nice and bright and unique.

52teas 12 Teas of Christmas – Day 12

I didn’t finish this year’s advent with Kiki since she went to Ohio to see her family before Christmas. She’s a coffee drinker at heart, and winter was rather mild this year so her desire for hot tea wasn’t as strong as in winters past.

Oh this is nice. It’s almost like orange creamsicle but really subtle with the marshmallow root creaminess and with sharper, fresh and juicy-sweet mandarin/peel. Am I also getting lime? The spearmint shows more in the finish, pleasant, if a bit dry. Overall, the flavors are really well balanced and carried well by the mixed green tea base which gives a bit of an unctuous yet brisk body. Bright taste tethered by an umami and a little dry grassiness. Kinda sweet, kinda tangy, kinda comforting, kinda refreshing!

This was my first time getting the 52teas advent. Anne definitely has a touch for flavoring and blending teas. She knows what base teas work well for her ideas. Looking forward to the 2024 set!

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate!
This is the 12th and last day of the 52teas advent calendar, a festive variation on the Graveyard Mist blend. I found the first and second steeps pretty different. In the first steep, orange was the dominant flavor and it was hard to make out the marshmallow note. In the second, I got lime and marshmallow, but no orange – go figure! In both steeps, the grassy, savory base complements the flavor very well. It’s not a bright, fresh grassiness. More of an umami grassiness that’s lifted by the citrus.
Overall, I’m really glad I got this advent! A couple of the teas were misses for me, but most of them were really really tasty! Even the misses weren’t bad, they just didn’t quite live up to the promise for me. Plus it let me try the dole whip blend that I missed out on when it was first released. Fully expect I’ll be getting this next year too.

ETA: Turns out there’s no lime/lime flavoring in here, so my palate must really be all over the place today!

Flavors: Grass, Lime, Marshmallow, Orange, Umami

52teas 12 Teas of Christmas 2023 – Day 12

Ooh, interesting. I assume this is a riff on Graveyard Mist, which I think is a spearmint and marshmallow green tea? I’ve had it, but it’s been a while ha ha… Smells very orangey in the bag.

There’s definitely citrus, I think it’s reading as orange to me? I honestly don’t get any marshmallow or creaminess at all, but that’s fairly normal for me with marshmallow root. So mostly getting orange (?) on a mellow, grassy sencha base, along with a touch of mint. It’s pleasant enough, I just wish there was more mint and more marshmallow.

Flavors: Citrus, Dry Grass, Grassy, Mint, Orange, Spearmint, Sweet

Adventageddon Day 24 – Tea 2/4

Y’know, I’m familiar enough with Graveyard Mist to understand that this is a riff on that iconic blend. However, I will fully admit that I’m not quite familiar with it enough to actually understand what the differences between these two teas actually is.

Regardless, I enjoyed this tea! I drank it while doing my traditional rewatch of Olive The Other Reindeer (best and severely underrated Christmas movie) and the smooth, sweet notes of citrus (lime? orange?) with their ever so slightly creamy undertones and spearmint-like minty finish was every bit as enjoyable as it was unique. So, pretty enjoyable. Kind of loose mojito vibes? But definitely more lime heavy than a typical mojito.
