February Teas

Alright, I’m back y’all, with a box of tea. You are probably going to be getting tea for the next three weeks. I am finally buckling down and doing my tea that I’ve collected from boxes. Without much more to say, I give you TEA.

Month: Februrary 2020

Red Velvet Cuppa Chocolate by The Republic of Tea

This tea is made from Rooibos, Beet Root Bits, Sweet Blackberry Leaves, Natural Chocolate and Vanilla Flavors.

This is another one of those teas that I just can’t do. Chocolate teas just… I can’t.

This tea is caffeine-free.

Rating: 1/5


Lavender Dew White Tea by Udyan Tea

This team is made with white tea, lavender, spearmint, and natural rose flavor.

This tea tastes strongly of lavender, which I suppose is not surprising as its called Lavender Dew. I really like these flora teas, specifically lavender and rose, so this one is automatically a hit for me. I can’t really taste the mint, but I think it might be there to strengthen the lavender and make the drink taste cold.

Right, the drink tastes cold to me. Its a weird thing to say, but the lavender feels refreshing and cool despite being a hot drink. I think it might be the mint.

This tea has low levels of caffeine.

Rating: 5/5


Heart by Healthy Teas

This tea is made from hibiscus and rose petals.

It is interesting how this tea does not spell much of hibiscus. Typically that scent is over powering. And much like how the scent isn’t strong, neither is the flavor. Often times hibiscus can be too fruity for me, despite being floral. This tea is a good floral balance for it, IMO. So I really like it. Surprise. It’s because the hibiscus is so light and mixes with the rose. Also, the color is so pretty.

This tea is caffeine-free.

Cherry Bomb by Nautilus Tea

This tea is made from green tea, dried cherries, cherry blossom flavor, and rose petals.

I was fully prepared for the onslaught of cherry after smelling this tea. It wafts with the radiance of cherries so vividly, I thought it would carry over. However what is a strong scent is a soft taste. There is the lightest hint of cherry but it is mostly subdued. I know that I like this tea, but I am trying to decide if I like it enough to give it a five. For that is a strong number for a tea. For now I will give it, but if that changes in the coming months, don’t be surprised.

This tea has low levels of caffeine.

Now, I’m not saying that Sips has realized I love flavors with rose in them, but I’m just noting how many flavors this month had rose in them. I was caught off guard by it at first, if I’m being honest. In general, most of the flavors were fun and yummy this time around. I think that the one flavor that was outside my taste range was unfortunate but it happens.

Until Next Time,

MM
