Go look up Lapacho. I’ve never heard of a tea with this ingredient but it tastes pretty good and it’s good at soothing a sore throat. All of the flavors blend together very well but I think it is better with just a bit of honey.

This is a good but fickle tea. If you don’t steep it long enough you don’t get enough of the many great flavors but if you steep it too long the blood orange rinds will make it bitter. The smell and the taste make you feel relaxed. Doesn’t need sweetener.

I keep opening and closing the tin because I don’t know how to describe the dry tea smell. It’s… odd. I have no idea. Once steeped it is quite sweet. I was quite surprised when I first tasted it because it was not at all what I thought it was going to taste like. It’s okay for the most part. I can taste the subtle hints of different flavors but there’s just something I can’t quite put my finger on that makes it not very appealing. I think perhaps it is the ginger that gives it the off flavor. I love ginger but for some reason it just doesn’t mix well in this tea.

An interesting rooibos. Needs to be steeped for quite awhile; otherwise it ends up kinda bland. Honey gives it an odd flavor. The pre-steeped smell reminds me of fresh hay. Not one of my favorite but soothes a sore throat.

A very good Earl Grey. A unique Bergamot smell fills your nostrils as soon as you open the bag. It tastes just like an Earl Grey with a touch of green tea added.

Everything about this tea is lovely. The smell before and after it’s brewed, the taste, and even the color of the brewed tea. The flavor is a perfect blend of almond and other flavors to give it the cake flavor. It’s nice to have a tea that tastes like the name describes it.

This is one of my favorite teas. The best part is the after taste. I love how the ginseng lingers on your taste buds. It’s such a smooth tea it’s easy to drink at any time. The pre-brewed smell is a little funky.
The version I have is not Joy’s tea brand but I am not sure of who made it cause I can’t find it in their online store (Cooks of Crocus Hill – Goods and Goodies)

Jasmine was my starter tea. It’s easy to drink with honey or without. It also blends well with other teas. This Jasmine tea is mellow and full of Jasmine flavor. I still prefer this one with honey then without though. It’s also good cold. In order to fully appreciate the Jasmine flower flavor I had to let the tea cool down.

Bio

Stay at home mom of two kids. I’ve been drinking tea for quite awhile but figured now that my studies don’t have to reside on my job I can study up on tea. There is so much to learn!

Lately my tastes have been leaning toward unflavored blacks like Big Red Robe and Amba Thieves. I have a special place in my heart for greens though; especially Genmaicha.

I am a tea consultant for Tea Queens and Steeped Tea but I’m not good at pushing sales or home parties… But I do love to talk tea so if you have questions I would love to talk tea!
