I am getting this post out in time! Do you have any idea how excited that makes me? It means I finalized taking 7 photos of tea today, is what it means. I’m going out for tea later! Save me! I don’t know if I can drink that much tea in one day (I can, but should I is another question). I feel like I should bring a book with me to that cafe to take a photo, but I have no idea which one to take.
You have three hours for suggestions! Otherwise, what you have been waiting for.
Month: March (2019)
Tea 1: Strawberry Blend by Tea Head
This tea is made of Elderberries, Hibiscus, Apple, Black Currants, Flavoring, Blackberries, Strawberries, Raspberries, and Wild Strawberry Leaves.
I did not hate it, which would have been a one. However it is not my principal type of tea to go to. I feel that it is a type of tea that I will have to get used to (fruit flavored ones) or maybe it’s just strawberry teas that I don’t like. I actually have no clue. Maybe I should have added sugar, but I very rarely add sugar to my teas. Let me try sugar.
With sugar: It was not so bad. I probably could drink this with sugar as an iced tea actually, as a refreshing summer brew, however it’s not my go to.
This tea is caffine-free.
Rating: 2/5 (w/o sugar) 3/5 (with)
Tea 2: White Rose by Tea Fiori
This tea is an Organic Bai Mudan White Tea made with Rose Buds & Petals.
So light. So airy. It’s like roses and white tea together in a beautiful blend. I love this tea so much. This is most def one of the ones I will buy and rebuy over and over again. I most certainly recommend. It is a spring tea for certain, however, so be warned.
This tea is low caffeine. It is also probably one of my favorite teas that I have had.
Tea 3: Organic Rooibos Tea by My Red Tea
This tea is made from Organic single-origin Rooibos from South Africa.
Not going to lie, Rooibos is such an odd flavor that in the time that I have had to let it sit and digest it’s taste (since I got it back in March), I have grown more for the flavor of it. I simply wasn’t used to the idea of the flavor is what it was. It is a good tea. Despite it’s red color (it’s very red), it is a light tea IMO. The first time I drank it, I know I fought myself to do so but the second time I found myself being drawn back into the flavors as if greeting a good friend.
It is a caffeine-free tea. While I’ve only tried this tea hot, they did say to try drinking it cold, as well as that you could add it to bathwater to have it soothe your skin. I’m not going to lie, but I def believe it could be soothing on the skin and I was tempted to buy more just to try it.
Rating: original: 3/5 Second taste: 5/5
Tea 4: Organic Assam Green Tea Bag by Mana Organics
This tea is made from Organic Assam Green Tea from Chota Tingrai, a family-run tea estate in India.
I forgot how green tea this tea was until I tried it again this time. It’s strong, and I do like strong green teas (as opposed to strong white teas). I blame it on going to school and not using sugar in my green tea one day. I can’t exactly say why I like green teas to be strong, but I do, and it always energizes me. Be warned, I am biased.
This tea is low caffeine.
There were a lot of good teas in my March box, so many that I need to remember in my future tea purchases. That is, if I buy teas. Chances are, I’ll end up getting tea boxes and get all my tea needs through them instead. The chances are high with that one.
Until next time,
