TEA SELECTION: W WHITMAN

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

This tea’s scent took me a few tries, I kept saying “I know that scent, what is it, what is it”? My #1 pick!

Ingredients:

Organic Green Tea
organic ginger root
organic lemon peel
organic eleuthero root
organic lemongrass
natural lemon flavor.

Review:

When reviewing a tea I never look up the tea on the website, I love to try my own senses out when reviewing. I kept smelling and tasting this tea and knew the scent was familiar and it took a bit of time, and then it hit me: “Fruit Loops”! This tea will remind you of the cereal fruit loops. The taste will remind you of it as well also. Lemon/Lime or citrus with no aftertaste or bitterness. Yellow liquor that is sure to please.

Cost: $9.75 / 4 oz tin
Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

My #3 pick as a favorite out of all 7 teas.

Review:

As stated above this tea was my number three pick. , I loved the sweet scent and amber liquor, you can also taste all of these at one time and that is always a sense pleaser: Caramel. Nutty and Buttery all at the same time making this tea smooth and delightful.

Company highlights, notes and more:

Simpson & Vail, Inc. is an old time tea company and was originally founded as a green coffee merchant in 1904 by Augustus M. Walbridge on Water Street in New York City as Augustus M. Walbridge, Inc.

In 1929, Mr. Walbridge sold the business to Mr. Simpson, the accountant, and
Mr.Lester Vail, the tea taster. Hence, a great business was born.

For years Simpson & Vail, Inc. was located In New York City on Water St., then Front St., then Park Place. Besides the location changes, the business grew and numerous phases occurred. From 1929 to 1962, bulk tea was the only product Simpson & Vail, Inc. carried. In 1962 roasted coffee and teabags were added. Late in 1978, Jim and Joan Harron purchased Simpson & Vail Inc., and in 1979, they added specialty food products and tea accessories as well as expanding the tea and coffee lines.
