Secret Weapon from DavidsTea

Tea Type: White Tea

(Fruit/Herbal/White Tea Blend)

Where To Buy: DavidsTea

Product Description:

This blend just might give you the edge you need to stay healthy this fall. It’s a white Bai Mu Dan, so it’s naturally high in immunity-enhancing antioxidants. Plus it contains licorice and goji berries, a Chinese wonderfood reputed to have 500 times more vitamin C than oranges. The best part? The almonds and cocoa nibs. They don’t fight colds, but they make this an amazingly tasty weapon of choice.

Tasters Review:

Upon opening the package this smells like nuts!  Lots and Lots of Nuts!  Almost a peanut butter type aroma.  Underneath I can smell a little fruit and even less flower-likeness.

I’m not gonna lie…I stole an almond sliver before infusing…it was tasty!

After infusion this smelled like almond but more mellow. I can also taste the Goji Berries slightly.   The white tea itself has a great clean flavor!   I can’t really taste the licorice much…but that’s ok with me…oh wait!  There it is…it’s “on the assist” and on to the aftertaste…but only a hint!  It seems to squeak it’s way in there!

This is a creative and comforting blend!  It’s fun and unique!  I’m very happy about this tea it seems to be the full package!  Good and good FOR you!

Soothing Lemon Wellness from Teas & Tapestries

Tea Type: Rooibos

Where To Buy: Teas & Tapestries

Product Description:

(Organic Caffeine Free Rooibos Tea) This tea blend has a sparkling-like lemon flavor which gives this blend a fresh and lively character – terrific served hot and sensational served iced! This tea is very soothing when served hot with a little honey, perfect for those winter sore throats! Rooibos is an ultra fine, delicate tea and once brewed it will produce a hearty red color with a warm scent. Rooibos holds a superior, natural sweetness that is unsurpassed with a smooth and aromatic after taste!

Modern medical institutes and, most notably Japan have taken quick notice of the medical benefits of consuming this beverage and have amassed findings on Rooibos including anti-viral, anti-spasmodic and anti-allergic properties. They have also found that Rooibos is over 50 times more active in anti-oxidant properties then green tea!

Rooibos is caffeine free, rich in naturally occurring trace elements, and contains healthy amounts of Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Fluoride, Manganese, Zinc, Calcium, and Vitamin C. It also contains fair amounts of alpha-hydroxy acid, which is known to promote healthy skin. This is truly an amazing plant that is just starting to make its way into western culture from its mountain peak home of South Africa.

This tea is not a commercial blend, but I personally hand mix it in small batches to ensure quality and uniformity of each and every custom tea tin.

Brew: Steep 1 teaspoon in 8 oz water that has been brought to a rolling boil for 5-7 minutes. This particular blend is excellent iced and I recommend brewing 5-6 teaspoons of loose tea to make a mild 1 gallon of sun tea that is phenomenal served over ice! This will make your tea tin produce almost 5 gallons of iced tea and it is an excellent way to welcome company into your home 🙂

Organic Ingredients: Red Rooibos, Lemon Peel, Lemon grass

Taste: Sparkling-like lemon flavor, fresh & lively. Excellent hot or cold!

Each tin contains 1/2 cup of loose tea and will make approximately 20 cups of brewed tea.

Tasters Review:

Soothing Lemon Wellness is very nice. I like lemon…usually LOTS and LOTS of lemon in types of tisanes like this…but the lemon is more mellow than I thought it would be and I do like it quite a bit still.

Maybe that is what they mean by SOOTHING.  Regardless this is a satisfying cup.

This seems like it would be the perfect ending to a stressful day.  I assume, but have yet to try, that it would be lovely iced, as well.

 

Red Sunset from Red Leaf Tea

Tea Type: Black Tea

Where To Buy: Red Leaf Tea

Product Description:

A rare tea from Europe, the Red Sunset Tea uses black tea as base and has a natural fruit flavor that adds a hint of sweetness to the aromatic brew. The tea has light floral notes and vitamin C as well due to the added rose petals. Enjoy this sweet loose leaf black tea hot any time of day for a delicious pick me up.

Tasters Review:

Red Sunset from Red Leaf Tea smells like black tea with fruit and floral notes.  It’s a nice Reddish-dark brown. Taste-wise it is really good and quite flavorful!  It’s a sugary-sweet tasting flavored black. It reminds me of Rose Marzipan from Teavana without the intense Rose…you know that candied-sugar cube in that blend…that is what the sugar-sweet taste remind me of.  There is a floral back-end to it but NOT an intense rose…it’s a delicate type floral and very nice!

The more I drink this the more I like it…and I mean really, really LIKE it!!!!  I have been happy with most – if not all – of the Red Leaf Teas I have tried thus far!  Check them out when you can!
