Tea of the Week for March 18, 2019!

One of my youngest daughter’s favorite restaurants is Buffalo Wild Wings – and when we do eat there, it’s a pretty safe bet on what she’ll order: Salt & Vinegar Wings and a glass of Blueberry Mint Lemonade! I have to admit, I love the Blueberry Mint Lemonade (and the Salt & Vinegar Wings!) so I decided it was something I’d have to try in tea form.

I determined the right base for this blend should be green rooibos – because it’s got a fruity note to it (rather than the nutty flavor you’d get from either red rooibos or honeybush) – plus the flavor it does have is light and fresh and would work well with these flavors.

And YUM! This drink is really terrific – a delightful combination of these flavors. It doesn’t taste exactly like the beverage from the restaurant – because the herbal leaves make for a somewhat different flavor experience. But it is really tasty – fresh, fruity, a little bit tart and a little bit tangy, with a nice, cooling mint note (but not too much).

This delightful, springtime cuppa tastes great served hot but it’s even better iced – and it’s all organic and natural, gluten-free, allergen-free and of course VEGAN!

organic ingredients: green rooibos, lemon verbena, lemon balm, lemon grass, spearmint, blueberries, lemons & natural flavors

I enjoyed this one! Green rooibos seems to have a much milder flavor than red, which I appreciate. This blend had a nice fresh, minty flavor that balanced well with the lemon…not much blueberry that I could detect. I enjoyed it hot, but guessing it would be even better iced!

Flavors: Lemon, Mint

Yes, green rooibos is very different. This flavor combination sounds amazing!

Green rooibos is so nice. I wish more tea companies used it!

Inkling

I agree; why do so many companies use red rooibos when green rooibos and honeybush are both so much tastier? (At least in my opinion…)

From… last week? The week before that!?

This tea has been sitting in my queue of teas to write about for a while, and now I’ve forgotten the details surrounding when I drank it – but I know it was delicious and I wrote down for myself that all the title flavours were achieved, but the nicest element was the cooling minty finish!

Tasting note stops here!

Someone asked me about my “queue” the other day (that I reference in tasting notes) so here’s generally how I keep track for myself, if anyone is curious…

I generally try to write a tasting note for every tea that I drank that doesn’t relate directly to work (because I drink tea as part of my job), and I have a list on my desktop with all the teas I’ve drank that still need to be written about. I call this my “queue”.

In that list, I use a coded letter system to remember how I drank it/if I added anything to it outside of just having it hot and straight. An example might be…

Blueberry Mint Lemonade (H) … if I had it with honey
Blueberry Mint Lemonade (CB) … if it was a cold brew
Blueberry Mint Lemonade (P + M + S) … if I had a pot of it with milk, and it was a sipdown

There’s a bunch of letters I use as shorthand for myself. Sometimes I add a few jot notes for myself under each tea on the list if there are things I REALLY want to make sure I remember, but usually I’m really good at remembering those details or I can cross reference my instagram account.

As a general rule of thumb, I “allow” myself up to twenty teas in the queue before I have to set time aside to write them all out – those obviously I try not to let it get that full, and write tasting notes whenever I have the time. This helps me mentally balance the routine of wanting to write for everything though, and not spending literally every evening writing tasting notes; it’s enough of a buffer that with a totally empty queue that can give me at least two days, sometimes three, without filling it.

Also, as some people have realized, I don’t always write in order. There isn’t really a specific system as to why I write specific tasting notes before others – just depends on the mood I’m in. Though, one thing I typically don’t prioritize at all are notes for bubble tea/kombucha/bottled drinks, even though I do like to write about them. I also prefer to write about sipdowns more quickly, so I can keep my Steepster cupboard as up to date as possible.

So yeah – a glimpse into my crazy!

Not a big fan of this one. Not enough blueberry or lemon of any sort, and too much rooibos/mint. It wasn’t terrible, though, and those who enjoy green rooibos and mint may thoroughly like it (that’s just not me).
