Chinese Green Teas (including a Jasmine scented green tea) blended together with apricots, orange peel, orange blossoms & cardamom

If you’ve read my description of July’s themed box, then you probably guessed that one of these ‘custom’ creations would be for Alice herself. I mean, she is the main character, isn’t she? Plus, when the Mad Hatter asked her if she cares for tea, she responded, “Why, yes. I’m very fond of tea.” So, it really goes without saying that she NEEDED a tea of her own.

For Alice’s tea, I started with a Long Mei green tea grown in the Yunnan province and added apricot, orange peel, orange blossoms & a touch of cardamom. To this delicious, beautiful blend, I added another green tea – a jasmine scented Yunnan grown green tea – to create a unique treat for the senses. A tea that looks and smells just as fantastic as it tastes!

I absolutely ADORE this tea. The jasmine notes are forward but do not overwhelm the palate with perfume – the apricot softens the jasmine just so while tantalizing your taste buds with sweet apricot flavor. There are hints of citrus offered throughout the sip – brought to you by the orange peel & blossoms and of course the cardamom, which also provides a kiss of spice that is just barely there.

It’s a beautifully fragrant, delicious experience, this tea. It’s also vegan, gluten-free & allergen free!

Another from the grab bag, I had hoped I would get this, as it was one I wanted to straight-up purchase but decided against as I guessed it might be among the two mystery packs I ordered! Glad to see I was right.

Anyway, this one has a lovely stonefruit sweetness to it, without any additives. I’m also tasting the floral of the jasmine and a touch of the green tea (but not much). The peach flavor more or less takes over in this cup, which is fine for me, I love a strong peach tea. That said, I’m not sure if the peach and jasmine are playing well together. There’s an… well there’s an odd note to it that I can’t place. It tastes a bit metallic? It feels like the two halves of the flavor profile don’t want to mesh properly. It doesn’t stop me from enjoying it though. It should be noted that I believe I overleafed and oversteeped this, so take that into account.

EDIT: It occurs to me that the flavor I am having a hard time processing may be orange zest. It’s a possibility, I’m not sure. It’s sharp and slightly bitey, so there’s a good chance it’s that, and not some weird aftereffect of the blend.

All in all, this is an ok tea which, while I enjoy, my palate isn’t nearly as discriminating as many others, so liking this is probably a “me” thing. Oh well. I’m sure I’ll enjoy what I have. I need more peachy greens in my life!

I actually liked this tea. It has an interesting – full of spices- aroma – and a robust, well-balanced taste. Green tea and jasmine give it an intense, vibrant character, and apricot/, orange and cardamon round it out with their sweetness. Also, a pronounced juicy and spicy aftertaste that lingers cheerfully.

All flavorings are fresh and clean but not overpowering. A nice blend with some character.

Flavors: Cardamon, Jasmine, Orange Zest, Peach

Nice way to describe it, Bluegreen! Me too. I rated it 85 even though I didn’t write a review. I tend to not write about teas that I have a hard time describing hehe.

Getting very far behind on tea reviews due to working and being sick. Twice. Ugh, daycare!

Anyhow, had this tea a couple days ago. It reminded me a surprising amount of “Explore the World With Us”, but it must have been the jasmine giving me that vibe, since I don’t think they are overly similar otherwise? In general, it didn’t quite work for me though. I wanted more apricot/orange/cardamom and less jasmine. Tentative rating because I think this one needs another try.

I think it must be the jasmine that reminds you to the Explore the World With Us tea, because that’s really the only thing that the two teas have in common.

This was our tea of the week for July 1 (for last month’s themed box). Last night, I set it to cold-brew overnight and it’s really quite nice cold-brewed. I think I might like it a bit better when it’s steeped and served hot – it’s a little fruitier tasting when it’s hot. Served cold, I notice more of the jasmine notes. I enjoy both – but find myself wanting a little more apricot in this cold-brewed version – something that is much more present in the taste when served hot.

That said, I do notice more of the fruit flavors (apricot and orange) as I continue to sip. Very light and refreshing – especially after having so many black iced teas as of late.
