If you enjoy floral teas, Chinese green teas or fruit teas give this one a try. The price is worth it for those seeking quality.
Milk teas are incredibly relaxing when done well. Most especially when freshly made at a tea house you like. 3:15PM, a brand by Shi Chen in Taiwan has done fairly well with their bagged milk tea variants for ‘instant milk tea.’ Check out my thoughts on this Earl Grey Milk tea by 3:15 PM.
Oh my gawd! What are you drinking? Why is it so green? Oh, don’t worry. It’s just mugwort tea. This interesting herbal drink from Korea I was introduced to a couple years back by some friends at Puripan Tea Garden in California.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Korean teas an wildly underrepresented in the tea industry as it is today. Largely this seems to be due to their herbal and floral nature as opposed to the Chinese, Indian, Japanese and Sri Lankan “pure” teas most tend to drink day to day.
Mint is always a palate pleaser. It’s constantly fresh and lively. Mint is known as a digestive assistant and an herb which helps with concentration. And that’s just how Zhena’s Gypsy Tea markets their Egyptian Mint Green Tea.
Almost all oolong teas come from China or Taiwan. So it’s always a bit neat when you find one from somewhere else. This Himalayan Night from Jun Chiyabari is a Nepalese oolong, and I have to say, I like it.
Fig is a tremendously underrated fruit. Aside from Fig Newtons there aren’t many people here in the ‘States’ who consume this fruit frequently. This Cinnamon Fig Rooibos is light but flavorful and an every day quality tea if you ask me.
It’s not every day I find a treat I like. I mean, I drink an exorbitant amount of tea, and I enjoy almost all of it. I’m discerning when I need to be, but sometimes I need to kick back. This Turkish Delight from David’s Tea is like a dessert for me!
Frank over at 52teas is at it again! This time attempting to recreate the flavors of a time-honored Summer favorite, the Banana Split! I happen to be a fan of these tasty treats. Let’s see how Frank’s recreation fares shall we?
Earl Grey is a staple tea in many tea houses and households the world over. Typically a light Chinese black tea is flavored with oil of the bergamot orange from Italy. This Earl Grey de la Creme from Special Teas is a creamier version of this aged classic which could be an everyday tea for some.
