Tasters Review:

Premium Silky Green Tea from Bird Pick Tea & Herb has an AWESOME aroma!  It’s like nothing I have ever smelled before!

The only way I can describe the dry loose leaf aroma is intensely buttered flavored popcorn – I think I can even smell a little naturally salted flavor – unless I just am associating the aroma with buttered popcorn so much so that my mind is playing tricks on me!  Whatever it is I have to say I would easily give the aroma on this one a 100!!!!

These are some crazy wild leaves, too, that put on quite the show as they unfurl!

The taste is also Buttery!  Buttered Veggies!  Buttered Popcorn!   It’s semi-sweet and a very flavorful green!  The more I sip it the more sweeter it gets!  This is smooth! It reminds me of a milky oolong but then it reminds me of a buttery green!  It may be somewhere in the middle – regardless I am REALLY enjoying this one!

This is probably one of the most memorable greens I have had in a LONG time!

I ended up doing multiple infusions on this one too!  I highly recommend trying multiple infusions with this one!  The 2nd infusions is completely different than the first but far from disappointing!!!!

This is MUCH sweeter and MUCH MORE silkier and creamy and sooth the 2nd time around!   It’s less buttery and more sweet with the 2nd infusion. It’s still FULL of flavor tho and a wonderful tasting green!!!

As for the 3rd infusion…

Again it’s completely different from the previous infusion!  This is still intensely flavored but this time around it’s more of a grassy green with slight buttery notes underneath. It still ends rather smooth and I would still call it silky but a grassier silky instead of a buttered popcorn silky/creamy…maybe more like a broccoli type!?

I LOVE YOU Silky Green!

Spring Harvest from Sanctuary T

Tea Type:
Green/White Tea Blend

Where To Buy:
Sanctuary T

Product Description:

An amazing blend of green tea, white tea and passionfruit flavor.

Tasters Review:

Well, I know I am ready for Spring!  Are you!?  It’s been an overly trying winter across the United States.  I have always lived in a snow belt area but this year has been the worst I have see in a long time.  The worst part is…I HATE WINTER…I’ve always hated winter…I HATE snow…I will ALWAYS hate snow!

So – needless to say – I can’t wait for Spring!  I can’t wait for nice weather!  I can’t wait to see the blooming of flowers, the sun beating down, green grass, and wildlife again!

In the meantime this tea helps.

Spring Harvest from Sanctuary T is a Fruity Green and White Tea Blend.  Mostly Green tho and I am ok with that.  The green tea is almost buttery and quite smooth going down.  It’s slightly tropical minus the stereotypical coconut tropical flavor.  I suppose that would be one way of describing it anyways.

Yes!  This sure helps me THINK SPRING!!!!

Tea has saved the day again!  Here’s to SPRING!  CHEERS!!!!

Simmer Down Tea from Good 4 You Teas

SIMMER DOWN TEA
A nourishing blend with a hint of berry and sweetness. A relaxing tea to help build a wall against stress. Great for the nerves and the heart.

(NO CAFFEINE) All the herbs were purchased certified organic or grown in my garden. Over 50% New England grown.

Tasters Review:

I have been waiting to try this tisane.  For a few reasons, actually.  One being I really have to be in the mood to drink most herbals.  The 2nd reason being I wanted to NEED to be Simmered Down to get the full effect of this Herbal Tea.

I’ve been a “Nervous Nelly” the last few weeks because of the Holiday Hustle Bustle (I still haven’t even started shopping yet because of the awful weather we have been having) and scrambling with work, home, and crafting problems and projects!  So I figured this week was as good as time as any to give this tea a whirl!

I assumed this would taste REALLY herbally and I wouldn’t like it but I will say I was pleasantly surprised and I enjoyed this cup pretty well.

ALL of the ingredients play nice and are on the mild side!

I would say a little berry and a little herb – but again – the flavors blended well and were gentle!  I LOVE that this tisane did NOT shout!

Pi Lo Chun from Drink T

Tea Type: Green Tea

Where To Buy: Drink T

Product Description:

One of the rarest of green teas, Pi Lo Chun is grown in orchards amongst fruit trees. The sweet fragrance of the fruit blossoms are absorbed by the tea leaves while growing. The short harvest season, from the Spring Equinox (end of March) to the Clear Brightness (early April), also contributes to its exclusivity.

Our Pi Lo Chun uses only the finest, most tender leaves. It’s hand picked and processed in the higher elevations of Taiwan where the tea bushes are shrouded in mist and kept cool by the high mountain air.

Sweet and crisp, this tea is well rounded and will finish with a clean, lingering taste.

Bring water to point of steam (170-180)
Steep Time: 2 – 3 Minutes
Number of Infusions: 1 – 2
Sweetener: Optional
Cream: No
Caffeine: Moderate

Tasters Review:

On my personal rating level – I have this currently set at an 89.

It has a slight buttered veggie scent but it doesn’t really taste like buttered veggies.   It’s not grassy at all!  I like that!  I like that it sort of fakes you out!  It’s also sweet but even a little floral.  The Finish and after taste are both sweet and clean!

Don’t let this one pass you by – or you pass it by, rather!  It’s a nice cuppa!
