Halo from The Persimmon Tree Tea Company is just outstanding and AMAZING!!!
It perfectly opened/bloomed the first time around without any imperfections whatso-ever and smelled of blueberry and peaches and that’s on top of the floral aroma…how awesome is that for a blooming tea!!??

I could taste the blueberry, peach, and flowers and it’s very yummy!

I tried a 2nd infusion on this and it was still very tasty!  The only notable difference was the 2nd infusion was more floral.  It was still an overall wonderful flavor tho!

This is probably one of my favorite blooming teas or flowering teas I have tried  to date!  This is VERY special!

Tasters Review:

The Persimmon Tree Tea Company is one of those companies that has really grabbed my attention lately.  Their flavor selection is really wonderful and I love their little tin/tubes, too!  I also really like their website and labels.  I just think they are an all-around good company!  If you have the opportunity to check them out – please do!

As far as this specific tea goes…

Prior to infusing…the aroma of this reminded me of my Grandfather because it smelled like his Almond Pistacho Ice Cream he used to eat!  As I infused this it morphed to mostly Caramel scented with a little green tea scent underneath.

I did sip this right away after my infusion was complete and thought it it was pretty good…a nice combo of green tea and caramel.  But as the liquid cooled at room temperature for a little bit I noticed the magic happen!   The Caramel Flavor doubles!  It was very yummy!  The Caramel is genuine and helps cut the craving for sweets, at least for me, it did!

This is really terrific!

The caramel is center of attention here but the green tea flavor is noticeable in the background, too, and there is a little Rooibos sweetness coming thru but not very much but that’s ok because I wouldn’t change a thing about this Persimmon Tree Tea offering!!

Tasters Review:

I’m always interested in Mint Chocolate Chip Flavored stuff!  I have to admit…I just think chocolate and mint are genius together…generally speaking!

BUT…when it comes to this flavored rooibos…it doesn’t let me down!  It’s intensely flavored and smells AWESOMELY AWESOME! I know that is redundant and not the most creative phrasing for an official tea/tisane review but it DOES fit the bill…trust me!

I can see all of the ingredients and something that looks like dried apple but I don’t see that in the list of ingredients so maybe what I am seeing is a vanilla bean or something.

The taste is a nice, bold, strong Chocolate and Mint Mix.  It does hide quite a bit of the Rooibos taste but paired with the vanilla makes for a milky-smooth ending and aftertaste.

This is very good!  I like this a lot!  And I mean A LOT!

As it cools the chocolate becomes more malty…almost like a chocolate milk shake type malty…this aspect of the taste interests me as I don’t recall having that happen to me in other tea/tisanes.

This without a doubt made it to my mid 90 percentile of favorites!
