Tasters Review:

I recently grabbed this cute little packet of  “Power” powder whose ingredients include green tea powder among others and added it to 18-ounces of water.

This is a grayish-pink color with particles still visible from the powder…nothing I can’t handle tho.It’s a mellower aroma of a variety of fruits that is fairly easy on the nose!

The taste is VERY yummy!!  It’s fruity without being tart! It’s like a fruit salad of flavors!  I can taste all sorts of fruits in here…several berries, watermelon or various melons, perhaps, it’s very good!

I like this a lot!

A nice energy boost in the afternoon!!!

Tasters Review:

Peach Apple Crisp was the very first tea I tried from The Persimmon Tree Tea Company and I must say I am impressed!

DRY this smells like various black teas, peaches, apples, flowers, spices, and a little hibiscusy.  It’s  FULL of aroma and I like that!Post infusion… this smells mostly of peaches, apples, flowers, and cinnamon. Different than the pre-infusion but still very nice and very aromatic!  Another PLUS in my book!

It infuses to a nice medium golden brown color.

The flavor is absolutely delightful!  I can taste individually the peach, the apple, the cinnamon, and the flowers…but they all jive well together!

The stereotypical Rooibos taste wasn’t really there as much so I would suggest this blend to ANYONE who thinks Rooibos is NOT for them…this just may change your mind!

The more I sip on this the more I like it! My first cup I had HOT but assume it would be tremendous cold, too!  I am going to have to put that to the test very soon!

Simply put…I LOVE THIS blend!  I have officially put it in my upper 95+ percentile of teas I LOVE.  Stay tuned to SororiTEA Sisters for more tea reviews from The Persimmon Tree Tea Company!

Tasters Review:

I’ll get straight to the point…I LOVE THIS FLAVORED OOLONG!  Strawberry Oolong from Butiki Teas is certainly a winner in my book!

It has the tiny pearls I have seen in some Cherry Blossom Green Teas – that I have tried in the past – and I think they are lovely and a nice touch to this Strawberry Flavored Oolong!

The aroma is excellent! The Oolong Leaves are screaming multiple infusions!   I did put this to the test and it holds up very well to multiple infusions!  This is also wonderful hot or cold!

The strawberry tastes are spectacular!  They are sweet without ANY trace of sour or bitterness. This is very sweet and very nice!

I’m totally diggin’ Butiki Teas Flavored Oolongs!

So far every tea/tisane I have had of theirs is wonderful! I really like this company!!!

 

 

Apricot Kernel Tea from Sanctuary T

Tea Type: Rooibos

Where To Buy: Sanctuary T

Product Description:

The first tea in our Autumn Special Edition Tea of the Week Collection makes its presence known with a strong burst of ripe fruit overtones. The apricot mixed with flower petals and whole almonds makes for the perfect rooibos mix!

Tasters Review:

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again!  I LOVE apricots!  Ever since I was a toddler!  Yes, I was a weird kid…my favorite foods were dried apricots, lima beans, and fresh sprouts.

I actually bought some dried apricots the other day at the herb store, too!

I think almonds go well with Rooibos!

This smells incredible…both of apricot and almonds!  When I saw that there were HUGE WHOLE Almonds I was VERY impressed!

This infuses a little darker than most Rooibos(es)…I’m excited about that as well!  Plus…there is a hint of floral aroma coming thru too!

Just when I think I can taste more almond than apricot – I then taste more apricot than almond. They seem to flip-flop as I continue to sip!

This is a great tasting FUN flavored Rooibos!  It’s Juicy, Sweet, and Slightly floral.  What a LOVELY group of flavors!  This exceeded my expectations!

Where to Buy:  Shui Tea

Product Description:

Herbal blend of freeze-dried orange, grapefruit, tangerine, apple, blackberry and carrot, mixed with lemongrass, hibiscus, eucalyptus, and beetroot. This blend is a harmony of sweet and tart flavors.

Taster’s Review:

Now that the holiday season is pretty much over, it’s about the time that most of us are starting to think “healthy” to compensate for our holiday indulgences.  Well, this tisane will get you on your way!

And you know what?  This is a tisane you’ll want to drink not because it’s healthy, but because it tastes good!

When I first opened the package, I could smell eucalyptus which can come off either as a pleasant smell to some and medicinal to others.  I happen to like the smell of eucalyptus so long as it’s not an overpowering scent, and while this tea smells primarily of eucalyptus, it doesn’t overwhelm the nostrils.

I had planned on steeping this for 5 minutes, but, at 4 minutes, I noticed that the tisane had taken on a very deep red color, and I feared that this would be a strong hibiscus-y tea.  Since I’m not terribly fond of hibiscus, I stopped brewing at this point.

And at 4 minutes, the results of the steeping is quite pleasant.  The hibiscus notes are very faint, the liquor is not thick or syrupy, and only the occasional tart note.

This tisane is citrus-y with a pleasing background of smooth, sweet apple, beetroot and carrot.  These ingredients lend more to the surface of the tea than they do to the flavor – giving it a little bit of sweetness and body so that the citrus tones do not come off as too acidic.  The overall effect is that of a refined, pulp-free juice like you might enjoy at a juice bar.

The eucalyptus is not as strong in the flavor as the aroma would suggest, but I do get the sharp, fresh taste of eucalyptus trying to peek through the citrus notes.

Overall, a very pleasant beverage – that is is healthy is just a bonus!

Orange Spice Tea from The Tea Nation

Tea Type: Green Tea

Where To Buy: The Tea Nation

Product Description:
Oranges originated in Southeast Asia and are widely grown in warm climates worldwide. The fruit is commonly peeled and eaten fresh, or squeezed for its juice. We have mixed a refined orange extract with a secret blend of a variety of aromatic spices like cinnamon, cardamom and cloves to create this exciting taste. As with all our tea we have used only Pure Ceylon high grown teas that have a full bodied aroma to create a pleasurable cup of tea

Tasters Review:

Orange Spice Tea from The Tea Nation is a bagged flavored green tea and it smells like orange and green tea.

It also tastes like grassy green tea, a little orange, and almost like a gingery type spice.   The orange is subtle yet pleasant.  I think I would like it better without the spices in it and it just being orange flavored green tea.  I do like this one better that most of the Tea Nation Teas overall…so far.

I did find that as it cools – the spices come out more and if over steeped the spices overpower the other flavors.  It’s the other flavors that I enjoyed…so…I will just have to remember NOT to over infuse and continue to drink this HOT.  If I do that…all will be well in my own personal tea world.

This is a nicely flavored green tea in a bag when done to your preference.

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!
