Ingredients:

Sencha Green Tea

Mango

 

The Scent or Aroma:

Strong mango scent

 

Review:

This lovely brew comes with the enzyme fighting ingredient mango. Mango helps break down the enzymes in our stomachs when we eat. This tea has a lovely flavor, it’s light and airy, not vegetal at all but a lovely tea with a bit of sweetness to it as well. The liquor is a very light amber.

 

Cost: Subscription as well as individual tea prices to be announced shortly!

Smooth yet darker brew tea

Taiwan Oolong

Mild woody scent, earth and deep

Mild tea with a depth to it, but not a strong tea, mild with notes of sweetness and earthy. The fun thing about these teas are their subtle and not overbearing taste.

Tea Selection: ST. CLAIR DIMBULA OP1

Interesting Highlights:

Stronger tea one of the strongest as far as caffeine in the box this time. Lovely roasted tea leaves dark in color, stronger liquor.

 

Ingredients:

Sri Lanka Ceylon tea

 

The Scent or Aroma:

There is a sweet aroma to this tea, earthy and a mild vanilla scent that just sneaks out from behind.

 

Review:

A stronger tea with a slight bitter edge , yet still following the smooth pattern that all these teas have shown. There is a very nice berry flavor that you can taste when you look for it, fun tea to explore. This is a wake you up tea and great for that morning wake up or the afternoon pick me up. It’s not harsh, but the caffeine will wake you up and keep you going.

Tea Selection: RHUBARB OOLONG

Interesting Highlights:

Who would have thought Rhubarb in a tea? Such a sweet smell a lovely tea with a delightful unique scent.

 

Ingredients:

A Chinese Oolong

Rose Petals

Rhubarb

 

The Scent or Aroma:

A sweet scent, a bit of a honey and cinnamon fruity scent when first brewed.

 

Review:

The scent of this tea is really unique and splendid and as we normally know a scent is not a taste. A genuine tea, honestly I’m not a rhubarb fan, but this tea is super good. It’s amazing how a tea can taste “sweet” with no honey or sweetener added.   A mellow sweet tea with a unique flavor something like strawberries and honey or fruit and honey. Enjoyable.
