Episode 022: Kitchen Sink Tea

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!

Episode 165: Bvumbwe White Tea

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!

Episode 172: Afternoon High Tea

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!

Episode 259: The Self Care Blend

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!
