Episode 012: Pisces Tea

Adagio Teas has this astrological tea blend series that I really wanted to give a try. As a Pisces, I was drawn to the Pisces blend.

There’s a lot of flavors going on here — citrus, chamomile, black tea, rooibos, etc. — and sadly, the taste is more similar to what you’d find from a regular supermarket black tea. I really wanted to like this, but…nope. I’m not a fan.

Episode 020: Blood Orange Smoothie

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!

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!

Episode 030: Tazo Passion

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!
