Tea of the Week for March 2, 2020!

My mom’s birthday is this week, so I decided that I should make a tea to celebrate the woman who brought the Mad Tea Artist into the world. Happy Birthday, Mom – you mean the world to me!

This tea starts with a blend of black teas (a flavorful Keemun & a rich, tippy Yunnan – both organic!) – then I added lots of sweet, delicious dates, dried orange wedges, ginger root & just a touch of cake essence to create a birthday cake that should bring a smile to my mom’s face – & hopefully yours too!

Super yummy – this blend is organic, VEGAN, gluten free & allergen free!

organic ingredients: black teas, dates, ginger root, oranges & natural flavors

Another one I pulled from the 52Teas sample box…

I don’t like the dry leaf smell of this one; it’s too intense and comes off as very harshly perfumed. Like walking into a fog of assorted perfumes when you go through the Perfume section of The Bay, but with just a hint of citrus.

However, the tea steeps out fine! Much more smooth, and a more rounded and coating orange flavour that reminds me of very natural orange oils from the rind. A little bergamot-ish, as well. Which is still citrus; just “hearty citrus” if you will. I get hints of ginger, which add a nice depth to the flavour without detracting from the central thick orange notes. The thickness works well for the idea of a “glaze” IMO, and I appreciate that glaze hasn’t just meant “sweet/sugary”. I don’t really taste date? Nor do I particularly get cake – but I still enjoyed the tea after I’d steeped myself up a mug.

This smells absolutely incredible. Like a honey pound cake topped with date syrup and candied oranges. The flavor is much more subdued than the smell, and there’s a bit of sharpness from the black tea blend. The ginger is very mild, almost undetectable. The combination of flavors is lovely.

Our Tea of the Week for March 2, 2020! This tea was crafted in honor of my mom – her birthday is at the beginning of March, and I wanted to create a tea for her birthday.

Date! Orange! Ginger! Even a touch of cake-y flavor. This blend comes together the way I hoped it would. The orange & date are a bit softer so that the flavor of the dates could be front & center. The orange is sweet & bright – complementing the notes of date very nicely so that the sweetness of the date does not become a cloying taste. The ginger is gently warm – a warmth that starts off in the back of the throat & slowly develops. It’s nice – not too spicy – but contrasting the sweeter notes of the fruit & cake just enough to keep things interesting for the palate.

A great idea for a blend – sounds delicious!
