I was really excited when the lovely people at Enjoying Tea contacted me to review and try a tea sampler on them! They must know that I am a devoted tea drinker.
In fact I am a daily tea drinker, and no I do not mean Lipton or any other brand from the supermarket. I drink tea for the beneficial factors, plus it is a great alternative to soft drinks and coffee.
There are many benefits from choosing to drink tea, you can view many of them here at this website them here: http://www.webmd.com/diet/tea-types-and-their-health-benefits
Tea can also be prepared many ways, I find making a larger amount fits my needs better than the traditional 1 glass tea bags. I like to purchase loose tea so that I can use my large steeper.
These are the 6 teas that I received to try:
Jasmine Green Tea
Jasmine green is my daily go to choice, I love the light flavor the honeysuckle aromas of jasmine. I like to drink this tea medium warm. I often brew a large batch and take this with me to go in the car or office.
Keemun Black Tea
I am just now experimenting with black teas as I have always thought they would taste like drinking straight coffee bitter and yuck. But I was wrong, brewing this I noticed a sweet orchid aroma and a dark orange color. The first time I made this I drank it warm and the second time I drank it hot with honey, drinking it hot is my preferred tempature.
Roasted Mate Chai
This tea has some of the following ingredients: roasted yerba mate, ginger, cardamom, coriander, cinnamon, and black pepper. Chai is amazing but unfortunately I am allergic to certain spices most commonly in Chai. I did not test this out but the smell is amazing, I am going to email the company to get the full ingredients before trying this one.
Earl Grey Black Tea
The first time I tried Earl Grey from another tea vendor it was horrible, I could not even finish the drink.
This time I tried the Earl Grey I found that it was not bitter, or harsh. The citrus flavor is easily identified and makes this tea great iced on a hot day.
Organic Slimming Oolong Tea
I love Oolong tea, the tricky issue is finding the right brand for you. Some Oolongs can taste pretty much like soap, these typically are the cheap supermarket brands. I like to mix Oolong with Green tea the smooth taste, and nutty flavor leave you with an amazing aftertaste throughout the day as you drink it.
I like to drink this mixture especially if I am sick or having sinus issues. The blend soothes these issues.
I had never tried the Vanilla Rooibus due to a horrible experience with a vanilla tea at Teavana. However I tried this tea expecting the worst, and yet I was very surprised. I recommend drinking this tea with the companies recommended dash of sugar and milk. Just don’t overdo it. This is a great evening relaxing tea.
I shopped around on their website, they have amazing deals on tea pots and and accessories, check them out before heading to a pricey tea store.
