Tasters Review:

Sunset in Seattle Tea from Market Spice looked much like the picture above  thru the see-thru bag it came in but there was white powder heavily throughout the blend.  For me not knowing too much about this tisane before trying it I was confused by the powder ingredient but quickly released it was the vanilla within the mix.
The vanilla ‘powder’ is powerful and very nice smelling.  The overall aroma consists of Chamomile, Mint, and Vanilla.  The color post-infusion is a cloudy gray-orange-yellow type color.  The taste is minty but floral…Herbally yet smooth…lemony yet vanilla….this is odd but lovely.  It’s interesting and surprising!  I ended up REALLY liking this one!  The aftertaste is minty yet sweet! Opposites completely attract in this case…and it makes me grin from ear to ear!

I especially liked the vanilla and minty notes!

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!

Emerald Ice Tea from White August Tea Company

Tea Type: Green Tea

Where To Buy: White August Tea Company

Product Description:

All the good stuff. Beautiful green tea, Ginger, Jasmine and tropical fruits. Our beautifully refreshing melody was made for iced tea and packed with antioxidant richness.

Tasters Review:

This smells like Pineapple, Jasmine, and Green Tea!  It has a very lovely aroma!  I especially like the Pineapple but paired with the green tea and Jasmine it makes it very unique and even more likable!

Emerald Ice from White August Tea Company tastes like gentle flowers, tropical fruit, and green tea.   The Green tea is the main flavor and it’s not a grassy green but it’s not super sweet or buttery either…probably inbetween all of those.  The sip starts off smooth and goes into more of the fruit towards the end of the sip…almost like mixed fruit…pineapple, pear, cherry, you know the mixed fruit you would get in a can?

I really like this flavored green tea – it just seems to have the right amount of everything!

Tippy South Cloud Tea from The Tao of Tea

Tea Type: Black Tea

Where To Buy: The Tao of Tea

Product Description:

Reddish brown brew, sweet aroma with roasted undertones and full bodied flavor.

Tasters Review:

The dry aroma of this Tippy South Cloud from The Tao of Tea sort of reminds me of a lighter darjeeling type scent.  After I infused it – I thought it was  a bit flatter in aroma but it had a nut-like smell to it as well.  I thought the aroma alone was memorable!

The color is dark and bold.

The taste is well rounded and is a medium strength black tea.   It’s fairly smooth and not astringent at all! Even if over infused…which I did put to the test for my 2nd cup of this darling tea!

What a soothing and simple yet tasty black tea!

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!!!

 

 

Pecan Pie from Tea Oh

Tea Type: Rooibos

Where To Buy: Tea Oh

Product Description:

A sweet and nutty, dessert-worthy tea.

Tasters Review:

Pecan Pie from Tea Oh couldn’t smell MORE like Pecan Pie!  The aroma is RIGHT ON!  After infusing there is a bit of texture to the liquid.

The taste is VERY nutty with the Rooibos taste standing right by it’s side.  The aftertaste somewhat resembles the pie crust type taste, I suppose.

I have found many “pie” flavored teas and tisanes miss the mark on the “pie” or “Crust” taste but this one is as close as I have come across and for that I am pleased with this flavored Rooibos!
