Episode 128: Tibet Sunrise

Remember when I reviewed Creme Maurice? I also received another tea in this shipment to try out — Tibet Sunrise. This is a great blend of Ceylon black tea, orange peel, and thistle. You really don’t see enough thistle in tea blends.

Overall, I thought this was just okay. I tried brewing it at two different temperatures, added some cream, added some sugar and…it was still just okay. You know what stood out though? The thistle! It adds an interestingly spicy note to this tea which contrasts well off the orange and black tea.

The Tea Lab doesn’t sell this online, but you can pick up this blend at T Salon. Let me know what you think about it!
