Here is another tea I received by attending the World Tea Expo is Las Vegas. This herbal Organic Relaxation tisane from Teas Etc. is an interesting and colorful blend.
Back in March when I made a visit to the PekOe Sip House we tabled next to a guy and his son. They had picked up a bit of something called Uncle Andrew’s Wellness Blend. It’s a special blend not on the menu, but available in stone and, now I get to try it!
Mint is always a palate pleaser. It’s constantly fresh and lively. Mint is known as a digestive assistant and an herb which helps with concentration. And that’s just how Zhena’s Gypsy Tea markets their Egyptian Mint Green Tea.
There are a lot of ways we create “tea.” The puritans amongst us will scoff at anything not at least partly of Camelia Sinensis. I’m guilty of this myself sometimes. But there’s no denying this nut and beetroot blend from David’s Tea in Canada smells and tastes great!
Purity: being undiluted or unmixed with extraneous material. Nah, that doesn’t sound right. Purify: remove impurities from, increase the concentration of, and separate through the process of distillation. That’s more like it! That’s what this Sri Lankan black tea, peppermint mix from Tavalon Tea does!
It’s not every day I find a treat I like. I mean, I drink an exorbitant amount of tea, and I enjoy almost all of it. I’m discerning when I need to be, but sometimes I need to kick back. This Turkish Delight from David’s Tea is like a dessert for me!
Earl Grey is a staple tea in many tea houses and households the world over. Typically a light Chinese black tea is flavored with oil of the bergamot orange from Italy. This Earl Grey de la Creme from Special Teas is a creamier version of this aged classic which could be an everyday tea for some.
Some rather crazy herbal infusions have popped up over the years. I’m used to some interesting pairings from Frank over at 52teas. However, this Jello Bello jelly bean blend from The East Indies Tea Company is something else.
On occasion I like to venture out into the realm of fruity concoctions. Something fruity can excite the senses and leave you wanting more. This Acai Berry from Zhena’s Gypsy Tea is apparently not my thing. Read on to learn why.
