Tea Review – Story Of My Tea – Tea Subscription (China)

Company Name: Story Of My Tea

Teas: China Tea Subscription

 

Tea Selection: Margaret’s Soother

Interesting Highlights:

This tea is a bits n pieces tea with actual pieces. When I looked inside the bag I could see large pieces of clover.

Ingredients:

Peppermint (USA), Licorice (China) and Clove (Madagascar)

The Scent or Aroma:

There is no mistaking that this tea has mint in it, it is by far the most prevalent scent followed by the clover and licorice.

Review:

Here is what I like, difference! This tea stands out in being unique but not a tea that is thrown together, there was thought into what would “gel” with the peppermint. The tea warms you right up and the clove and licorice add a very nice “spice” to the tea. The licorice makes a final finish as this tea really warms up your sinus cavity and throat. I can only imagine how helpful this tea will be during the cold winter months as well as those scratchy throat days of summer.

Tea Selection: Ya Bao – Silver Bud

Interesting Highlights:

I’m always amazed and hope I continue to be amazed at the flavor in a single leaf or bud tea. Nothing added just a single bud picked and in this case considered a “bud treasure” it is sure to surprise you and make you smile with each sip.

Ingredients:

Silver Bud

The Scent or Aroma:

The scent of this tea is spicy almost like oregano with a slight pine scent as well. It smells like a forest!

Review:

I actually took this tea into my sons room for him to smell, because I kept getting the oregano spice, for me that is what it tasted like as well as the pine or woodsy flavor that finished smooth and fresh. This tea is a clear brew that is smooth and delightful. The buds float a bit so make sure when you brew you shower the buds with the tea water. There is also a bit of a sap flavor that is very different as well.

Tea Selection: Iccha Kariban

Interesting Highlights:

The leaves are finely cut with a pea green liquor from the brew. There is a soft floral finish to this tea.

Ingredients:

Green tea (Japan)

The Scent or Aroma:

At first scent this tea is vegetal.

Review:

Again you have a single tea that has been processed and come out with a beautiful smooth floral green tea, it’s really an amazing thing to be able to be able to drink of a tea processed this way. This tea does have a very slight bitterness to it with a bit of a bark/earthly flavor as well.

Tea Selection: Dark Rose

Interesting Highlights:

This tea is pressed into a heart shape and I’ve included pictures to show you part of the experience watching it brew, it’s really interesting as it grows from the heart shape and the flavor is let out into the water to make a very nice smooth and strong rose flavor. Even my tea pet is curious about this tea.

Ingredients:

Black Tea (China)

The Scent or Aroma:

Right away you will smell the sweet floral scent of rose.

Review:

Fun to watch brew,

this tea has a medium liquor. It’s a very smooth tea with a strong but not overpowering rose flavor. Delightful and reminds me of something from times past.

Tea Selection: Shou Pu’erh Tou Cha

Interesting Highlights:

The brew of this tea looks like a cup of very dark coffee. A very earthy somewhat moldy tea that gives a smokey finish.

Ingredients:

A 2013 Pu’erh

The Scent or Aroma:

The tea has. A slightly earthy and nutty scent.

Review:

This is a dark tea, I would suggest this tea for any coffee drinker out there because it has the look and strength of coffee but the amazing flavor of a dark smokey flavor. There is some flavor that would remind you of dirt of the playing field of dirt or mold. It’s flavor is strong yet smooth.
