Episode 254: Russian Caravan

Привет! Today’s tea is a transatlantic trip to Russia with The Tea Spot’s Russian Caravan. This classic blend of teas consists of lapsang souchong, oolong, assam, and pu’erh. Pretty bold flavors there!

Even with this mix of strong teas, the resulting brew is full-bodied and mellow. Lapsang souchong adds a nice smoky finish to this blend, making it great either hot or iced. I could see this becoming a staple in my collection!

Episode 302: Morning Thunder

Out of the blue, Celestial Seasonings sent me eight boxes of tea…and six of them were Morning Thunder. This blend is a mix of black tea and roasted yerba maté.

Even though this is a bagged tea, I am really digging the flavor here! The roasted maté is floral and sweet, and the black tea gives a bit of a malty aftertaste. It’s not bitter, and it definitely gave me the jolt of energy I needed. Good job Celestial Seasonings!
