Ocean of Tea’s Plum Oolong is really something special.
I have a few sample packs in my collection from The Tea Spot, and this is the first one that stood out to me. I mean, who doesn’t want a tea that tastes like a smoothie, right?
This blend does not disappoint. It smells and tastes just like a Creamsicle. Best of all, you can’t really oversteep this since it has rooibos as a base. Try it iced for maximum vanilla flavor!
Mtume’s “Juicy Fruit” came to mind when I chose this tea. This is one of Teavana’s mixed blends (i.e., a blend of two blends), which consists of Blueberry Bliss and Pineapple Kona Pop. Hence the name Blueberry Kona Pop!
The dry leaves are really floral; actually, it kinda smells like Bubbalicious! It was great hot, but it really shines as an iced tea. It would be great as a mixer as well!
Teavana’s Youthberry is another one of these multiflavored blends that has a lot going on in one cup. Flavor-wise, it’s pretty similar to Blueberry Kona Pop. The difference here is the white tea.
The delicateness of the white tea plays very well with these flavors, so it’s not super heavy. Just make sure to brew it properly (175 degrees for no longer than 2 minutes)!
If you’ve been to Starbucks, then I’m sure you’re familiar with this deliciously floral and tart hibiscus tea blend.
I had a few bags left over from a Tazo assorted pack of teas I was gifted a while ago. Hibiscus is the main flavor here, and it’s highlighted with orange peel and cinnamon. It’s fantastic iced with a squeeze of honey or agave. Not bad as a mixer either!
