Episode 328: Sinharaja

Sinharaja. Doesn’t that just sound like something exotic and special? It’s the name of a rainforest reserve in Sri Lanka, and this tea is grown near there. As a Ceylon tea, this has a nice full body. But let’s see how Sinharaja is different!

After a quick steep, you’ll be rewarded with a pretty complex brew. There’s notes of raisin, honey, cocoa, berries, walnut…and they all appear based on the temperature of the tea. So I think it’s worth trying it hot and iced in order to get the full range of flavors here. Very nice!

Episode 363: Vanilla Jasmine

I’ve reviewed some root beer flavored blends before, and this vanilla jasmine from Golden Moon Tea sort of falls into that mix. It’s a mix of black tea and green jasmine tea along with organic bourbon vanilla beans which gives this blend its flavor.

It certainly smells like vanilla (with a touch of jasmine), but in terms of taste, it’s more of that vanilla/black tea/root beer flavor that I mentioned before. It would have been good to have some more of that jasmine flavor here, but it gets lost in the brew. I’d maybe add a bit of milk and cream to round out the flavors, but overall…it’s just okay.
