Tea Review – Veggie Sensations Part II

Company Name: Veggie Sensations

 

I love to receive new teas in the mail and I love to let you know about them. Veggie Sensations sent me a few of their teas to review. One thing about Veggie Sensations is that they do not only sell tea and their product line has some really interesting items in it for those of us that love to “play around” in the kitchen. So take a look at Veggie Sensations and all their wonderful products including their teas, coffee, juicers and other kitchen products.

TEA Selection: African Rooibos

 

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

A rooibos has a distinct scent and as with this tea it is there plus a bit of a citrus scent as well. It’s interesting to note the scents of the teas prior to brewing and after because you can see the transformation the tea takes during brewing.

 

 

The Scent or Aroma:

There is a strong Rooibos scent as well as a very slight citrus scent.

 

Review:

This is not as strong of a tea brewed but has that wonderful rooibos sweet flavor with a touch of citrus following. There is a bit of a medicinal aftertaste as well.

 

 

Cost: $10.25 / 1/2 pound

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

TEA Selection: China Black FOP

 

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

Sometimes the name of a tea does not always represent the brewed finish of the tea. That is the case with this tea, whose name signifies something dark yet the flavor is light and refreshing.

 

 

The Scent or Aroma:

This medium brewed tea has a light mellow tea with no aftertaste, very refreshing.

 

Review:

This tea has a very mellow flavor and scent, the brew is a medium dark brew with no bitterness or aftertaste, just a smooth mellow single origin tea.

 

Cost: $6.99 / 1/2 pound

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

TEA Selection: Angel Falls

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

Citrus and yet a mild mellow tea not bitter and smooth

 

The Scent or Aroma:

Very citrus scent

 

Ingredients:

Rose hips, Hibiscus leaves, Strawberry and Lemon

 

Review:

The fun things about a tisane or any tea with pieces of fruit in it are the actual pieces of fruit, sometimes I even try some of the fruit to see what it tastes like, sometimes sweet, sometimes sour but the fact is it’s not an oil that makes your tea taste that way it’s the actual fruit. This tea reminds me of the tea reviewed earlier this week called Blue Eye however not as tart.

 

 

Cost: $10.25 / 1/2 pound

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

TEA Selection: Russian Caravan

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

Ahhh.. Lapsang Souchong no matter how little of this you put in a tea you are going to come out Lapsang strong.

 

Ingredients:

Hints of Lapsang Souchong, Formoso Oolong and China Blend

 

The Scent or Aroma:

This tea has the familiar smokey scent of a Lapsang.

Review:

This smokey tea has a bit of a mild flavor and smokey scent. It is a mellow tea considering the ingredients and more a lapsong then anything else. There is nothing like the distinct flavor or a Larsong Souchong and when done right that tea will stand out as a favorite of all times.

 

Cost: $7.99 / 1/2 pound

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

Company highlights, notes and more:

 

VeggieSensations was established in 2005 and has grown to be a thriving business because we understand that you, the customer, is why we are in business.

Our goal is your satisfaction. We strive to inform you, to the best of our ability, about the products we sell so you can make a wise decision before making your purchase.

 

Our commitment is to provide you with high quality products at as low a price as we can for your daily food preparation needs.

 

We are also doing our part to reduce our foot print on earth. We do not have a paper catalog, thus consuming less paper products. Our product can be found on our website and some are on Amazon.com.

 

In our personal lives we strive to leave as small of a foot print on this earth as possible. We had been heated our water with solar energy from 1984 up until it leaked in 2014. In 2007 we added solar panels to our home which produces more electricity than we need in a year. We also grow organic vegetables in our garden here in California. In 2014 we began to grow excess vegetables for a local church program called Fresh to Families. This program provides the homeless and working poor in our town used clothing, canned and dried foods and as of 2014 fresh fruits and vegetables.
