So, yeah. I realize I didn’t put out a review this Monday. It’s because I’m not reviewing the classics. Then all the other books I have reviewed, the book clubs were moved so I was not able to get the final review done. I’m behind on a few things, but I have a lot of posts just sitting in my drafts. I will get those finished as soon as possible. Also, I’ll get the rating system up and going ASAP too. I promise. Goodness. I’m so behind but my goal for June was to get as much of this done as I possibly could, so I still plan to!
ANYWAY, you aren’t here for an update. You are here for TEA.
Month: June 2020
Cherry Vanilla by Tea Head
This tea is made from apple pieces, hibiscus blossoms, rose hip petal, elderberries, beetroot pieces, rose petals, blackberry leaves, sour cherry pieces, vanilla pieces, and flavoring.
This is a lot less fruity than I was expecting. It smells and sort tastes like a cherry soda. I wasn’t expecting to like this actually, because of how vanilla it smelled and how many fruit types are in the ingredients . So I am pleasantly surprised. It is still vanilla but very yummy.
This tea is caffeine-free.
Jasmine Pearl by Teapigs
This tea is made from pure green tea from Fujian Providence, and China infused jasmine flowers.
This jasmine is very strong but very smooth. The initial taste and smell are very jasmine, however there is no aftertaste. And so it pulls you back for more with each taste. I need to get into more jasmine teas.
This tea has low levels of caffeine.
Chamomile Lavender by Paromi Tea
This tea is made from organic rooibos, organic chamomile, natural flavors, and organic lavender.
This is such an orange tea. The chamomile really does match with the chamomile. The other flavors are just a nice after note. Sort of floats there, in the distance as a kind wave of support.
This tea is caffeine-free.
Rosemary Mint by Tealyra
Odd fun fact. For the first time I got an error, meaning I didn’t get this tea. No big deal. This tea seemed lovely, so I’m going to give you all the details of it. It was made of peppermint, liquorice root, rosemary, eucalyptus leaves, sweet blackberry leaves, pink rosebuds, yellow rosebuds, and rose petals. It was caffeine-free. I think that just sounds magic, don’t you think? I know that with the current situation in the world, teas are being mistaken in the boxes. It’s no big deal, because I’d rather that everyone stays healthy than get tea, ultimately. Also, I got this instead. And I think it is just as equally as lovely.
Rosewater Basil by Pinky Up
Now, I don’t know the details of the exact ingredients. That happens when its a surprise. However! My friend did say this tea was like my incarnation in the form of tea (from the bag to the presentation). So I’ll take that as a bonus any day.
So, I tried this hot first. And when I had it hot, I was basked in a warm flavor of wonder. I really liked it, despite the basil smell. I didn’t feel as if the basil was all that powerful in terms of taste. However, as if it could only get better, the iced version is so much lighter. It is so much more ROSE. I’m not sure if that’s because I did rapid cooling (where you add ice cubes in to drastically drop the temperature) rather than letting it sit, but it was just so much more light. The hot flavor is much more in your face with the flavor, pleasant but like a blanket enveloping you. This cool version is much softer, like a gentel breeze cascading around you.
I love it.
These were my teas. I get my teas through sipsby! I love the concept and so much of what I’ve been given by them. I do recommend, if you are interested in a tea box subscription. However, I also love tea. Little surprise there.
Until Next Time!
