Tea & Trumpets is a local-to-me Sonoma County tea blender who sets up shop regularly at the farmers market in town. A coworker gifted me, among other tastythings, a couple large bags of their teas for my birthday.
I made a few hours’ long ambient temperature brew yesterday with as much leaf as would fit in my steeper basket. How big is the pitcher? I dunno, 2 liters? Drinking it cold today, it has a really strong flavor! It’s very thrist-quenching and tastes a lot like The Teabook’s Impeachmint Tea which was a very similar blend. Mango Peach Fusion eschews the political snark for great flavor. It’s fruity but low-pitched and sweet because of the red rooibos but also has this thick, slightly herbaceous basil-licorice dimension from the tulsi. The mango flavor is a bit of a mystery, as it usually is in flavored blends. It’s never quite mango, you know? Really digging this one. It’s like a summer sunset.
If you’re out there, Sean, thank you!
Flavors: Basil, Fruity, Herbaceous, Licorice, Mango, Peach, Rooibos, Sweet, Tulsi
I took a sip of it hot and intended to put the remaining tea in the fridge to have iced later today. I ended up letting it cool and instead swigged it away quickly.
When I think of an Hawaiian Breeze, the last taste my mind conjures is the strong coppery and clear malty taste of this tea. I had a teabag, composed of mostly what I think is Ceylon black tea fannings. It was a bit strong and didn’t merge too well with the passionfruit oil. Hibiscus, is it even there? The tea did taste better cooled to room temp. Strange flavor combination, though.
I want to grow passion fruits something fierce.
Teabag from a local company! The bag tag has an image of a happy cow grazing with mountains in the background; SONOMA MADE. We’re known for our happy cows here.
Chopped green tea gives a hot hay base flavor. Lots of rose. It’s a beautiful rose with some vague fruitiness and a note of white pepper, light rose bitterness. Jasmine is second place, muted by the rose. I’m getting some returning sweetness.
Floral but it doesn’t go straight to my sinuses. Well balanced. Lovely.
Flavors: Floral, Fruity, Hot Hay, Jasmine, Nectar, Pepper, Rose
This Earl Grey Lavender teabag was super smooth and fresh, unlike me.
The first Steepster review for this local Sonoma County, California, tea company sucks; my emotions got in the way. There are more and better reviews on Tea & Trumpets’ website. I hope to do the next Tea & Trumpets teabag some justice.
Flavors: Bergamot, Lavender, Malt, Smooth
