Here’s Hoping TTB

Although I love American history, I had never heard of Bohea tea. As soon as I read the description on the package I was intrigued. Smoky orange spice? That doesn’t sound like it should work, but if the combo has been around for 200+ years, it must have something going for it! And while I don’t think this is something I would reach for on a regular basis, I did enjoy sampling it. The cinnamon flavor predominates, with just hints of the citrus peeking through and the smokiness lingering in the aftertaste. It’s a tea I really noticed while I was drinking it, not just mindlessly sipping my way through.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Orange, Smoke

Here’s Hoping Teabox – Round Six – Tea #10
This one has some punch! It is a very smoky blend and a nice dark tea (probably because the base is somewhat Assam). Caffeine for a rainy day. The most astringent teas are the ones that work best as smoky teas for me. I was only tasting hints of the cinnamon, none of the cloves or orange but that’s fine with me. I love the lingering flavor. Another smoky cinnamon tea like Liquid Proust’s Smoked Breakfast I had the other day!
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug// 14 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep

To be honest this tea was a total let down for me. I had read about Bohea Tea… The tea that started a revolution. I couldn’t wait to try a Colonial Tea! While I was awaiting a shipment of Bohea from Oliver Pluff & Company, I thought I would try this tea from our local Spice and Tea Exchange. It wasn’t a terrible cup. But, it just taste flat! Way too much Cinnamon and not nearly enough true tea flavor.

Needless to say if you want a much better taste of the Tea of the Revolution. I recommend Oliver Pluff & Company’s Bohea. Which I will be reviewing soon…
