Episode 016: Chai-napple Gunpowder

Today I’m reviewing another fun blend from Zoomdweebie’s 52 Teas line — chai-napple gunpowder. They’ve mixed traditional gunpowder green tea with chai spaces (cinnamon, ginger, caramon) and freeze dried pineapple.

As a hot tea, this didn’t really float my boat. But once it cooled down to room temperature, those spices really came out and it was quite enjoyable with the sweetness of the pineapple. I can imagine this would be really tasty iced! Give it a try!

Episode 018: Toasted Nut Brulee

Teavana’s tea blends can be really hit or miss. This toasted nut brulee blend is a mix of oolong and rooibos along with a kitchen sink of other ingredients like coconut, ginger, and pineapple.

The resulting brew is nutty and spicy and oddly creamy. All the flavors really don’t come together in a very good way, but it’s more palatable iced than hot. If you’re allergic to nuts, you definitely should stay away from this.

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!
