Is the stress of life getting to you?

Enjoy a cup of Earl Grey Lavender with its relaxing lavender scent and flavor. The beautiful purple flowers are said to ease headaches, insomnia, and stress. The addition of jasmine flowers is thought to relieve stress, elevate the mood, and aid in digestion. This steep is definitely not the typical Earl Grey!

Taster’s Review:

As the above description suggests, this is not the typical Earl Grey – but it is an excellent Earl Grey!  Superb!

When I opened the package, my nose was greeted with the beautiful fragrance of bergamot, lavender and a hint of jasmine.  I did not expect to see so many flower blossoms and petals in the tin – this is definitely a tea that you need to shake gently before opening to redistribute the flowers evenly throughout the tea.  A small amount of effort to exert for one of the very best lavender flavored Earl Grey teas I’ve ever tasted!

The black tea flavor is pleasantly brisk and offers a nice background flavor.  While it lends its strong flavor to the cup, it seems perfectly content to allow the flavors to really come through and express themselves fully.

The lavender is strong, but it doesn’t overpower the blend.  Instead, it is masterfully balanced with the bergamot, giving just enough of its flavor to the bergamot to accent some of the flowery notes of the fruit.  I can also taste a hint of the jasmine.  It isn’t a strong jasmine presence but that little note of jasmine adds a very interesting dimension to the cup.

As I’ve already eluded to, this is a well-balanced cup.  The bergamot does not try to overwhelm the lavender just as the lavender does not overpower the bergamot.  And somehow, the addition of the flowery flavors not only enhances the flowery taste of the bergamot, but, it also allows the citrus flavors to shine through.

The overall cup is sweet, feminine and juicy!  I love this!

Bountiful Black Tea from Tea Addiction

Tea Type: Black Tea & Rooibos Blend

Where To Buy: Tea Addiction

Product Description:

Ingredients: Black tea, rooibos, cacao nibs, coconut, apple, and vanilla flavoring. A unique blend of coconut scented black tea, smooth rooibos, cacao nibs, vanilla, and apple make Bountiful Black most pleasing to the palate.

The flavor is rich and sumptuous. Trust us when we say you’ll enjoy every delightful sip.

Tea Fact: Because Bountiful Black contains black tea, it also has caffeine. However, if you like the flavor of both black and rooibos tea you’re going to love these two blended together.

Tasters Review:

First I want to say that the name of this company is pure genius!  With the 2nd most popular (only to water) beverage world-wide being tea – we all know there are TEA ADDICTS out there…and two of them are right here at SororiTEA Sisters!

Bountiful Black Tea from Tea Addiction is nice and sweet and smooth and dessert like!  The Chocolate isn’t overly noticeable but this is darned tasty!

The Coconut and Vanilla as well as the apple bits seems to play more of a part here – but I think this tea is just DANDY!
