Episode 031: Mango Pineapple Darjeeling

Darjeeling is such an interesting tea, y’all. It’s a Chinese tea that grows in India and can have a really layered and complex flavor profile. In this mango pineapple darjeeling blend, the good folks at Zoomdweebie’s have added freeze dried mango and pineapple to create a really satisfying cup.

The fruitiness of the mango and pineapple really play well with the darjeeling, and it makes for a fruity yet balanced brew. This is so, so, so good.

Episode 089: Om

Tazo’s Om was one of the first teas from Tazo I ever tried. It’s since been discontinued, but I was surprised to find it in a Tazo assortment pack I received a while ago. Om is a mix of black and green tea with added peach and cucumber flavors.

Overall, this is a pretty good blend, even though those peach and cucumber flavors were just a faint aftertaste for me. The sweetness of the green tea is balanced with the depth of the black tea (darjeeling, I believe). Kind of a shame this isn’t available anymore, but I’d be interested in trying to re-create this as a loose leaf blend.

Episode 134: Nepalese Afternoon Tea

The last darjeeling I reviewed was kinda blah, but this one? THIS ONE? Let me tell you…transcendentally good. This Nepalese Afternoon Tea is really something special. As far as tea grades go, it’s the best of the best — SFTGFOP-1.

I’ve got nothing but good things to say about this tea — super smooth, bright in flavor, and great for an afternoon pick-me-up. Initially, I bought this as part of a sample pack from Golden Moon Tea. They don’t sell it anymore, but this Himalayan Quest from Art of Tea is a great affordable substitute.
