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 014: Bai Mu Dan

While I do have a lot of teas that I’ve gotten either through the mail or from a specialty tea store, I’ve also got some teas that I just picked up from a supermarket (well, if you can call Cost Plus World Market that).

They have a decent selection of loose leaf and bag tea, and when I saw this bai mu dan, I had to give it a try. Bai Mu Dan is a great intro to white tea with a light, flowery taste!

Episode 028: White Persian Melon

Yum! If you’re a fan of cantaloupe or honeydew, then I think you’ll really enjoy Golden Moon Tea’s white persian melon.

It’s a shame they don’t sell this tea anymore, because it’s quite good. They’ve paired delicate bai mu dan with just a whisper of persian melon extract. The result is super fragrant, and it makes for a light and crisp cup of tea. Lizzy Kate’s white cantaloupe would probably be a good substitute!
