With sweet honeybush as the foundation, they’ve layered on freeze-dried peaches and apricots along with cinnamon chips to create a blend that’s just as good to smell as it is to drink. (But you probably just want to drink it.)
I was very intrigued by this green tea blend from Zoomdweebie’s. The base is green tea (banchan, I think), and there is a huge medley of over 20 flavors added. Since each blend has different quantities of flavors, each cup tastes different.
It’s a fairly good green tea, but the fruity flavors are the star here. Try it iced and you’ll really taste the depth and nuance of flavor. It’s a lot going on, but it actually works!
On a recent samples binge at M&K’s Tea Company, I picked up a sample of their Bvumbwe White Tea. This tea comes straight from Malawi (tea is one of their biggest exports), and reminds me a lot of the oothu bai mu dan I reviewed a while ago.
The brewing directions were a bit finicky (158° at 30 seconds to two minutes?), but I was rewarded well for my efforts. The taste is nice and smooth with a hint of apricot aftertaste. It’s definitely not your typical white tea. Try it today!
I love that Plum Deluxe’s Afternoon High Tea is classified as a weekend tea. (Because it’s the weekend right now and I totally drank it not even noticing that!) This lightly caffeinated blend contains peach white tea, apricot pieces, and pear essence.
The result is a nice harmonious blend that does well as a hot tea but really sings as an iced tea. Try both and let me know which you like best!
What do you do for self care? For me, it comes in a lot forms — including having a warm cup of tea! And Plum Deluxe has just the tea for this revolutionary act — The Self Care Blend.
The mix of elderberry, apricot, and honeybush create a creamy and mellow cup of tea. It’s not too tart or too sweet — it kind of just melts into you and soothes you from within. I’m a fan!
