Episode 075: Sakura Allure

I do love cherries — namesake notwithstanding — so I had to try Teavana’s Sakura Allure. This is another one of their blends with a ton of additions, including bamboo and cactus. Luckily, most of those flavors don’t really float to the surface — green tea and cherry are the stars here.

It’s a pleasant tea, but the sour aftertaste lingers a bit longer than I’d like. Maybe it’s the cranberry and hibiscus, but it tastes like a lighter version of Tazo Passion. I imagine this would be really great iced!

Episode 174: Kenyan Chai

I’ve gotta say…I’m really a fan of this Kenyan Chai from Zoomdweebie’s. This blend includes black tea from Kenya and it’s mixed with ras el hanout, a savory, pungent spice blend used in North African cuisine.

Ras el hanout is filled with great aromatics (cumin, ginger, cinnamon, etc.), and the unique mix of spices gives a really complex taste to this blend. It’s great hot and fantastic as an iced tea. I love how tea can take you around the world from just a single cup! I just wish I could buy more of this particular blend.
