Tasters Review:

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!

Darjeeling Avongrove from Camellia Sinensis

Tea Type:
White Tea

Where To Buy:
Camellia Sinensis

Product Description:

This white tea is very unusual combination of Darjeeling terroir, pure assamica tea, and the artisanal expertise of Avongrove’s Mr.Subba. Large silken buds give a relatively dark infusion and liquor due to the assamica’s chemistry. Rich and creamy in the cup with a smooth, full attack of cocoa butter and hazelnut notes that linger into a long pleasant aftertaste.

Tasters Review:

I’m just going to say…right off the bat…I LOVE THIS WHITE TEA!

I don’t think you understand…I love it!  I mean I REALLY LOVE IT!

Darjeeling Avongrove from Camellia Sinensis has amazing cocoa notes after infusing.  It really came alive once I added the pipping hot water!  The natural aroma is very powerful and truly crave-worthy!

The taste is delicious!   It has cocoa and hazelnut hints but the white tea itself is top quality and smooth, silky, creamy, and a true delight!

This white tea really has me craving more!   I just might declare this one of my favorite white teas of all-time!

Let’s just say it had me at HELLO.

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!

Earl Grey Vanilla Almond Tea from TeaScapes

Tea Type: Black Tea

Where To Buy: TeaScapes

Product Description:

Earl Grey Vanilla Almond black loose leaf tea leaves are mixed with almond pieces and vanilla flavoring. The brewed liquor offers a pleasant flavor of bergamot mixed with the nutty tones of almond and creamy undercurrents of vanilla. This loose leaf black tea is perfect for desserts or for just a pure indulgence.

Tasters Review:

This is unlike anything I have EVER smelled in my life!  It’s powerful and has attitude!  And I like that!

The DRY Aroma – I can smell Almond right off the bat!  Right after that scent follows the Earl Grey!  I can smell both – both together and separately!  It’s very intense!  And VERY Unique!

After infusing – the almond tones down quite a bit and the Earl Grey comes thru even more.

The color of the infused liquid is that of a medium brown.

The taste is out of this world!

I can taste the bold black tea wonderfully!  Then I can taste the nicely done Earl Grey flavors and THEN the Almond barges thru!   The vanilla slides in towards the end of the sip and smooths it out pleasantly.

This is such a FUN tea!  I think it’s just GREAT!  I’m very impressed with the aroma, flavors, and creativity of both!   This is a REAL winner!

Ingredients: Organic fair trade rooibos, organic honeybush, organic blueberries, organic cornflowers, marigolds, natural flavors.
Origin: Art of Tea Blend

Tasters Review:

If it says “Cheesecake” I’ll probably try it!

At first sip I thought this was creamy and that was about it besides the honeybush and rooibos flavors but then I waited about 2 minutes at room temp…things changed from there on!   The blueberry flavor plumped right up and was very tasty.  There was still a great deal of creaminess to it tho.

I’m not sure if I would say cheesecake-like but it’s certainly creamy!  As for aroma I can smell the blueberries slightly but not overly so.

It is VERY dark in color once infused especially for a Rooibos and/or Honeybush. The after taste is a blueberry and ends with a tiny floral taste.

I don’t know if I would say this about many other tisanes but I enjoy the creamy flavor mixed with the blueberry and I appreciate the blueberry not tasting fake or over the top!

Overall this was quite good and I would certainly have it again!

Tasters Review:

The first time I had this tea the dry leaf mixture smelled JUST LIKE York Peppermint Patties! Post Infusion it smelled like Black Tea, Peppermint, Cream. I remembered this ‘brewed up’ quick and dark! It tasted like black tea, mint, and vanilla.  I remember saying that I LOVED the out-of the-bag aroma better than the actual taste of the tea…but the more I sipped the more I enjoyed it!

The 2nd time I sampled this I found it to be much more memorable!  Much more minty and creamy, too!  I really like this!  I mean really like this!  Many of you know my love for minty things!

I still think this smells like a Peppermint Patty but I love the fact that I can taste the Black Tea, The Mint, The Creaminess…all in one!  This is very aromatic, very bold, very flavorful, and very tasty.

I think I will have another cup today and many more days to come!
