Tea of the Week for April 29, 2019!

Featured Reblend/Retro Monday Tea!

For those of you who have been with me since my LiberTEAS days, you may recall the green tea and herbal blend that I had called Potpourri. It was a blend of gunpowder green tea, lemon myrtle, laurel, rose buds and petals and jasmine. It smelled amazing and tasted as good as it smelled – which is why I called it Potpourri.

When I was considering the five teas that I’d create for the Game of Thrones themed box, my original plan was to craft five new and unique flavors, but one night, I was thinking back to my LiberTEAS days and I recalled my Potpourri tea and thought – “HEY! Potpourri would make a fantastic tribute to Highgarden, home of a couple of my favorite characters!” (Yes, I have quite a few favorite characters!)

So I decided to reblend Potpourri and rename it Highgarden. And I tweaked it ever so slightly by adding dried lemon wedges to the other ingredients. In addition to tasting and smelling amazing, this blend is one of the most visually stunning teas I’ve ever crafted. It is a sensory delight – and one that is perfect for late spring and early summer (now) – because it tastes so beautifully fresh.

And yes! It’s all organic – as well as gluten-free, allergen-free and VEGAN!

organic ingredients: green tea, lemon myrtle, laurel, jasmine, rose buds/petals, dried lemons & natural flavors

The leaf smells delightfully lemony!

I was tapping out this tea into my gravity steeper on my kitchen scale, going for 4 grams. I hit 3 grams, and then a bunch lept out, hitting 6 grams! I put some back into the pouch but didn’t want to return any wet leaf from rinsing out the steeper. So I compromised and went with 5 grams.

The lemon myrtle is really the star of this tea. Like the name suggests, it’s like a walk through a garden. A garden with a lot of lemon scents, with other smells peaking at me in the background.

Oops, I let it get cool. So I added a bit of ice. It was slightly overleafed anyway, and it balanced out. Now I’m sitting in that garden on a warm day, cooling off to this tea. A slice of lemon would be great in it, I’ll bet. The vegetal notes come out a bit more for me when iced. This is really a fun, nice tea.

This came in the mystery grab bag I bought months ago and I’ve been saving it for warmer weather since it sounded so summery. My expectations were pretty low, as I don’t tend to love most floral teas. But this was a pleasant surprise! The lemon flavor keeps the jasmine and rose from coming across as perfumey and it’s actually quite a refreshing combination, especially iced! I thought the rest of my sample was destined for the TTB, but I may actually hang onto it.

Ha, my sample of this from the mystery bag is currently circulating in the tea box – different tastes!

Not a fan of floral teas, but I figured I’d give it a try since it came in a mystery box. The main flavors are jasmine and lemon. If this is the sort of thing you like, you’d definitely like this one. I feel pretty indifferent toward it, but that’s just my taste talking. I can tell that it’s a good tea.

This was a free sample included in a 52Teas order – the one where I basically just went ham stocking up on Winter Mint Oolong from the 12 Teas of Christmas sampler.

If I remember correctly, this was one of the teas from the Game of Thrones themed month. I’ve only see the first season of Game of Thrones, and I wasn’t a huge fan though I do have approximate knowledge of some stuff from other seasons since my brother was VERY invested in GoT when it was airing. However, I have no frame of reference whatsoever for what this tea might be intending to reference…

It’s not a flavour I probably would have ordered for myself, but I actually did like it! It’s not something mind blowing, though the rose notes present in the cup are really nice and I especially like them coupled with the very light and fresh citrus undertone. It’s that sort of agreeably floral profile that I would probably very safely be able to serve to my grandparents without resistance. Also the type of tea that would probably scale up really nice prepared in a large tea pot – a good sipping profile, over conversation.

The laurel is also a really interesting ingredient; one I don’t have much familiarity with as well so I was excited to pick through the LLT to identify it.

It’s been hard to coordinate teatime over two different timezones virtually with Todd so I just went ahead on my own this Sunday and tried another from my mystery box set; this green tea sounded nice to go with my eggrolls and white rice I was having with dinner. I was very curious about it; gunpowder green tea usually isn’t my favorite (because of the smokiness of it) and jasmine can be hit or miss for me depending on how strong the flavor/aroma of it is, but I absolultely love lemon myrtle (easily my favorite of all the lemony herbals) and rose so I was curious how the flavors would end up playing out.

The lemon comes out as the main flavor note, and it’s that nice strong, slightly tart, rich lemon that I just love, smooth and fresh and clean, the lemon myrtle really shining. There is a nice floral flavor to the tea as well, though I mainly taste the rose. Rose with lemon has always been one of my favorite flavor combinations so it is very nice. There is a strong vegetal taste from the gunpowder tea (almost a slight spinachy taste toward the back of my tongue) but I’m not getting that smoky hint that I usually taste from gunpowder, probably from the strong citrus and floral notes dominating.

It’s a nice, relaxing, floral lemon tea. I’m enjoying my warm pot of this, but would like to also try an iced brew of this at some point, too.

So I’m still working my way through my 52teas order, and already thinking of another. I don’t have the money for all this tea! To quote the song I’m jamming on, “paciencia y fe” :)

Anyway, I was hoping this was like drinking a bouquet of flowers (love me that floral) and I wasn’t wrong. There’s a strong lemon tartness in the forefront, which is nice. It’s not sour, just a touch tart. Also, there’s some sweetness present as well. But most of what you get once you move past the lemon is floral. I can taste the Jasmine and the green tea. The rose isn’t as noticeable as I would like, but it’s there too. Mmm, I’m loving this. Very good. I now wish I had grabbed some of this while it was lingering in the shop!

Overall, I can see how this wouldn’t be for everyone. It’s very floral, and while that works for me, I understand how it wouldn’t for others. The original name of Potpourri is very fitting for this, but I like the GoT name as well. Good stuff.

Sample from one of my 52 tea orders. Nope nope nope nope. I will always try teas in case…because there have been things I didn’t think I’d like that I have. However now that I’m reading this used to be called potpourri, I’m not shocked that it’s not a tea for me. That’s not to say that others wouldn’t love this, but I am not a fan of floral teas. :)

The idea of a potpourri tea is just super unappealing.

This tea was a stand-out in the Game of Thrones set. It certainly reminded me of the lemon cakes Sansa Stark ate when she had tea with the Tyrells of Highgarden. The tea looks beautiful with lots of different blossoms, textures, and colors in the ingredients— very photogenic. Brewed, the lemon myrtle is in the forefront, both tart and sweet, followed by the gentler tones of jasmine and rose. I found myself reaching for this tea when I wanted something flavorful but not candy-sweet. Apparently this blend was formerly named potpourri, which suits it. This blend is wonderfully fragrant in the dry leaf and when brewed in my mug. I really should snatch up any remaining samples from the store just to make sure I never run out.

I think this is the first of the GoT teas I’m reviewing? It was a fun month to subscribe to, and I’m looking forward to drinking the teas while watching the remaining episodes (we are cheap and added HBO to our cable package for May only, specifically to watch GoT, but have only watched the first episode so far).

This tea is very much lemon. Pleasant, bright lemon, though, but I found it almost a bit too strong. I believe I also oversteeped this when I brewed it, so I think I need to give it another shot with less leaf and a strict 2 minute infusion. I also was a bit sad that I wasn’t picking up more on the jasmine (I couldn’t care less about the rose, though, which was also hidden to me). Overall, not my favourite, but I’m interested to try it again. It was fine to drink brewed how I did, so it can only be better when brewed more carefully, I’m thinking!

This is our Retro Monday/Featured Reblend for April . . . it’s my tea (a LIberTEAS blend) formerly known as Potpourri – https://steepster.com/teas/liber-teas/6465-potpourri – that I’ve renamed Highgarden green tea because I felt that it would be a perfect tea to represent the Tyrell house!

This tastes every bit as lovely as I remember it. It is also as visually appealing as well as aromatic as I remember it.

The flavor is softly lemon with earthy notes, hints of nutty sweetness, sweet floral tones and an herbaceous undertone. It’s really quite lovely. I love it served hot but I’ve found out that I love this even more as an iced tea! It’s so unique and refreshing.
