This stunning Chinese black tea is among the finest in the world. Each spring the tea leaves are carefully plucked of only one leaf and one bud, resembling a monkey claw. The beautiful twisted golden leaves yield a full bodied tea with a soft apricot finish. 50g bag only.

Tasters Review:

This is a mighty fine Golden Monkey! It didn’t disappoint!  This has the flavor you would expect from a Golden Monkey as well as a semi-chewy with the slightest bit of smoke hint that lingers on to the aftertaste!

Plain, Simple, and Straight to the point…I haven’t found a tea from White August Tea Company that I haven’t liked!  What a great tea from a great company!

Rogue Wave from White August Tea Company

Tea Type: Green Tea

Where To Buy: White August Tea Company

Product Description:

Bold Japanese sencha tea, creatively entwined with toasted coconut and ginger to create a cone of a kind experience.

Tasters Review:

The aroma of Rogue Wave from The White August Tea Company before and while infusing reminds me of coconut cookies! It’s a wonderful smell, indeed!

The Green Tea is a powerful one and a tad on the grassier side of things but the coconut brings this to a whole new level!  It’s sweet and tropical and nearly cookie-like it’s a unique taste and glad White August Tea has this one available!

In addition, the ginger is noticeable but very nicely done.  It meshes well with the coconut and green tea!  This is a bold brew and I like it!  This is very tasty both hot and cold!

Where To Buy:
White August Tea Company

Product Description:

For the free spirited woman on-the-go, these teas we designed with our founders alter ego in mind, and packaged in a stylish tin with T-sacs.

Red, white and blue, oh how I love you. Hats off to our all American blend of Pomegranates, coconuts, blueberries and yummy rooibos. No caffeine so you can lull yourself to sleep with the ocean waves. 60g Tin.

Tasters Review:

“What Ever Floats Your Boat” has always been one of my favorite cliches so when I saw the name of this Rooibos I HAD to try it!  Then when I saw the “Free Spirited Woman On The Go” description I knew it was for me!  “But Wait!  There’s More!”  THEN when I saw the ingredients I was delighted and REALLY couldn’t wait to try it!  It sounded so plump and juicy and mouth-watering!

When I opened the pouch it not only lived up to the aroma – it lived up to the name!

This is quite aromatic!

It’s a very colorful dry mix!

Post infusion – the coconut gives it a slight oily texture on the top but the actual color of the tisane is a vibrant toned down brown-orange…very nice!

It has a nice strong Rooibos flavor but the blueberry and pom join hands in harmony and the coconut flavor does give it a semi-tropical yet milky-smooth flavor, too!

This is another good one from White August Tea Company and a very tasty flavored rooibos!

Product Description:

The perfect Tea for putting a smile on your face. Let’s get the party started with our Indian Black Tea blend that will remind you of vanilla cupcakes with candy sprinkles.

Tasters Review:

I’m a sucker for teas with sprinkles in them!  So I was SUPER excited to try this tea from White August Tea Company.  It’s called ConfeTEA.

This one is wonderfully creamy!  Silky-Smooth!  Awesomely velvety!  The description of Vanilla Cupcakes with Sprinkles is VERY accurate!

This is tremendous!  One that would appear on my favorites list time and time again!

 

Plum Proud Tea from White August Tea Company

Tea Type: Black Tea

Where To Buy: White August Tea Company

Product Description:

Black tea delightfully married with French plums, cranberries, and raspberries then kissed with just a touch of strawberry essence. The refreshing tea was made to be iced. A lightly fruity way to quench your thirst.

 

Tasters Review:

I’ll admit it…I’m Plum Happy!  For those of you have read many of my past reviews – you may recall my love for plum started when I was a toddler thanks to my Grandmother as did my love of Tea!  She was a remarkable woman!

This tea makes me happy and would make any Tea Company Proud!!!

Here’s why…
It’s a good flavored black tea and the Plum is the first flavor that grabs your attention…but the cranberry isn’t too far behind…nor are the Raspberries…and HECK…you can even taste the strawberry essence!   This is VERY tasty and the flavors all play nice with each other!

AND this is the perfect amount of fruit in a black tea!  It tastes true and it’s terrific!  I LOVE that no hibiscus was used in this!  It proves a great fruit flavored tea can be done without it!

This is almost wine-like…both in aroma and in taste. I sampled the first half of this cup hot and LOVED it and drank the 2nd half of the cup cold and LOVE it just as much.   The more I sip the more in love I fall!

Strawberry Cascade Tea from White August Tea Company

Tea Type: White Tea

Where To Buy: White August Tea Company

Product Description:

Awe-inspiring bai mu dan white tea, overflowing with strawberries, rose petals and creamy coconut. The perfect compliment to the perfect day.

Tasters Review:

The smell of this is unique…it’s sort of hard to explain but I would try by saying the rose comes thru more than the other ingredients but you can tell there are other ingredients within this mix…something slightly fruity but not very identifiable based on aroma alone…I think that is because the coconut fragrance interrupts the fruit and the rose overpower both the coconut and the strawberry.   But the aroma is lovely, regardless!

The taste is really wonderful!

The white tea flavor hits you and the strawberry is the prominent flavor on the tongue but it’s still somewhat mellow and isn’t tart at all! The rose comes thru a little too and the coconut takes the back seat but seems to step up to the plate a little more as it cools.

What a beautiful, gently flavored, tasty White Tea!  I really like this!
It’s a great cup – both HOT and COLD!!!

I’m a fan of  Strawberry Cascade from White August Tea Company and I must say I haven’t met a White August Tea I haven’t liked so far!  They have a wonderful selection and LOTS of tasty teas!  They are quickly becoming a tea company suggest to many of my friends!

 

Ebony Wine Tea from White August Tea Company

Tea Type: Black Tea

Where To Buy: White August Tea Company

Product Description:

Assam black tea garnished with black currant leaves and sweet berries. We recommend enhancing this tea with a lemon zest or cream for an outstanding smooth and lightly fruity morning beverage.

Tasters Review:

Ebony Wine Tea is another outstanding offering from White August Tea Company!

The aroma reminds me of a cross between ice(d) wine and Cabernet!  It’s a nicely flavored black tea.  The currant leaves and berries are perfectly in tune with my palate!  This is juicy and has a nice evenness to the sweet-berry verses the sour-berry.  I think it’s just lovely!

I have looking into more iced wine teas lately.  I must say my personal tea stash is a little low on iced wine teas at the moment so this was a perfect ‘stand-in” for it.
