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 075: Sakura Allure

I do love cherries — namesake notwithstanding — so I had to try Teavana’s Sakura Allure. This is another one of their blends with a ton of additions, including bamboo and cactus. Luckily, most of those flavors don’t really float to the surface — green tea and cherry are the stars here.

It’s a pleasant tea, but the sour aftertaste lingers a bit longer than I’d like. Maybe it’s the cranberry and hibiscus, but it tastes like a lighter version of Tazo Passion. I imagine this would be really great iced!

Episode 144: White Eternal Spring

Today’s tea selection is nice and light — it’s Adagio Teas’ White Eternal Spring. This white tea blend has a lot of flavors competing for attention: apple, blueberry, cranberry, hibiscus, mango, pineapple, and rose hips and rose petals.

Even with all that going on, I found the flavor to be crisp and fruity. The hibiscus and rose give a nice floral juiciness to the blend that complements the white tea without overpowering it. It’s great hot, but I’d suggest trying it iced also. Yum!

Episode 183: Wild Berry Zinger

I’ll level with you — I’m getting a little tired of the overabundance of hibiscus in herbal teas. Specifically, I’m tired of the overabundance of hibiscus in this herbal tea — Celestial Seasonings’ Wild Berry Zinger.

Aside from the hibiscus flavor, the only thing that stands out is the sour, tangy orange aftertaste when hot. It really doesn’t taste too far off from Pomegranate Pizzazz. Or Tazo Passion. I will say this — it makes for a pretty tasty iced tea. So if you do pick this up, iced is the way to go.
