An energizing rare wild tea with a smooth, yet hearty flavor. Leaves are plucked from ancient tea trees (500 years old or more) growing deep in the forests of Southeast Asia.

Tasters Review:

I think this is a great way to start your day if you are short on time or on-the-go!  This is a bold and burly black tea in a bag!  It’s pretty strong, fairly malty, rich and robust!  It has hints of that bakey or crusty type tea that I so much love, too!

Wild Forest Black Tea is a winner in my book!  And I really like that Choice Organic Teas support the Jane Goodall Institute!

Tasters Review:

This is a mighty fine Golden Monkey! It didn’t disappoint!  This has the flavor you would expect from a Golden Monkey as well as a semi-chewy with the slightest bit of smoke hint that lingers on to the aftertaste!

Plain, Simple, and Straight to the point…I haven’t found a tea from White August Tea Company that I haven’t liked!  What a great tea from a great company!

I’m a sucker for teas with sprinkles in them!  So I was SUPER excited to try this tea from White August Tea Company.  It’s called ConfeTEA.

This one is wonderfully creamy!  Silky-Smooth!  Awesomely velvety!  The description of Vanilla Cupcakes with Sprinkles is VERY accurate!

This is tremendous!  One that would appear on my favorites list time and time again!

 

Blue Mist from Simpson and Vail

Tea Type: Black Tea

Where To Buy: Simpson & Vail

Product Description:
Blue Mist is a blend of Jackfruit (a fruit from India with an aroma of banana and pineapple), Apricot and Mango black teas with cornflowers and marigold petals. Brew tea at 212º – steep for 3 minutes.

Tasters Review:

Thought I would step outside my comfort zone with this one. I HATE Bananas!!!! I mean HATE them! When I read this had Jackfruit in it – which is supposed to smell like Pineapple and Bananas – I thought I would try it!  I love Pineapple but not Bananas but I gave it a whirl…

It smells nice…you can tell Mango and Pineapple but there is a little hint of something else which I will ‘chalk up as’ that banana illusion. Nothing is too over the top to make me change facial expressions – like I normal would when smelling bananas – but it does have a different sort of aroma, that is for sure!

It’s VERY dark in color.

It tastes like a HOT tropical smoothie. Not really floral but fruity and not like Pina Colada but truly unique. Almost like a tropical drink with NO Pineapple, Coconut, or Flowers in it…if you can picture that. It’s much different than ANY flavored black I have tried to date. If you are looking for something different this just may be it.
