Episode 172: Afternoon High Tea

I love that Plum Deluxe’s Afternoon High Tea is classified as a weekend tea. (Because it’s the weekend right now and I totally drank it not even noticing that!) This lightly caffeinated blend contains peach white tea, apricot pieces, and pear essence.

The result is a nice harmonious blend that does well as a hot tea but really sings as an iced tea. Try both and let me know which you like best!

Episode 204: Honest Tea Organic Honey Green Tea

New challenger approaching! Honest Tea (along with Gold Peak) is owned by Coca-Cola, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s the exact same tea with different branding. Today, I’m trying their organic honey green tea.

The two sweeteners in this tea — honey and cane sugar — produce a bit of a pear taste that detracts from the flavor of the green tea (which tastes a bit like salad greens). It’s not overly sweet, so I’m glad for that. If you like pears and salad, this tea might be for you!

Episode 209: AriZona Blueberry White Tea

Flavored white tea is a bit of a crap shoot. By itself, white tea has a nice, delicate flavor. Depending on the fruit that’s added, you could just end up with fruit juice instead of a fruity-flavored tea.

AriZona’s blueberry white tea is somewhere between these two extremes. Not quite tea, but not super fruity either. The eerie indigo bottle is an interesting touch though.
