TOZY TEA – SELECTION OF TEAS REVIEWED

Company Name: TOZY TEA

Say Hello to Tozy Tea!  Unique teas, I saw them online and wanted to get to know them with the loving kindness extended in our tea community Tozy Tea sent me a few samples (and full size) of their teas.  I love sampling new teas and getting to know new tea companies.  I love sharing them with you our amazing tea community!

 

 

TEA SELECTION: NILGIRI FROST

 

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

I love a tea that tastes NOT like it smells, it really adds to the surprise of the tea as well as not judging “a book by it’s cover”. This tea surprises as a vegetal scent yet once brewed gives you a complete different picture of itself.

 

Ingredients:

Rare single estate tea (black)

 

The Scent or Aroma:

Vegetal scent prior to brew

 

Review:

As stated, never trust that a tea will brew as it is first smelled. This is an earthy tea with a very light scent of wood and mushroom. There is sweetness about the tea as well as a slight bitterness. It finishes with a very slight buttery flavor.

 

 

 

Cost: $6.00 / 1 ounce

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

TEA SELECTION: CHRISTMAS STAR

 

Interesting Highlights:

When I first thought of a Christmas tea I thought herbal infusion but this tea adds the flair and dynamic of a black tea, not just any but a tea from Sri Lanka. To me that makes the tea a bit of a better infusion because it has a Tea in it.

 

Ingredients:

Single Estate Sri Lankan Black Tea

Cinnamon

Orange Peel

Natural Flavoring Oils

 

The Scent or Aroma:

The scent is exactly as you would think, heavier on the cinnamon, which gives it that Christmas flair.

 

Review:

This tea is a medium bodied tea, not over powering at all and just the right ingredients mixed together to make it stand out.

 

 

 

Cost: $6.00 / 2 oz

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

TEA SELECTION: CHERRY BLOSSOM

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

This tea has natural flavoring oils added to it.

 

Ingredients:

Premium Sencha Green Tea from China

Rose Petals

Natural Cherry

Flavoring Oils

 

The Scent or Aroma:

Cherry blossom has a very strong cherry scent when first opened, the cherry flavor mellows as it brews.

 

Review:

The aroma of this tea is very strong when first revealed but once it is brewed it takes on a much mellow scent and flavor. This tea reminds me of a cough drop minus the mental, that cherry flavor and it’s mellow smooth flavor is a real plus.

 

 

 

Cost: $9.95 / 1 canister with 15 tea pyramids

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

TEA SELECTION: PEACH-APRICOT

 

Interesting Highlights:

This tea as well has an oil added to it (tropical), there is a very light scent upon opening the bag and that seems to be a peach scent.

 

Ingredients:

Premium Black Tea from Sri Lanka

Blackberry Leaves

Dried Peaches

Dried Apricots

Sunflower Petals

Calendula Petals

Tropical Flavoring Oil

 

The Scent or Aroma:

This Peach-Apricot tea has a few ingredients that do not appear in the scent or flavor but they are added bonuses because of their presence in the tea. There is a strong peace scent that mellows as it is brewed.

 

Review:

So glad this tea has a tea in it, other wise it would be an herbal tisane of infusion. The peace flavor really has presence and I like that because the name of the tea is what you are getting in a brew. There is a slight bitterness but this tea is more mellow then not. It’s a medium hue and clear liquor. Not an over powering taste of any one ingredient but again, a nice blend.

 

 

Cost: $9.95 / 1 canister with 15 tea pyramids

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.

TEA SELECTION: ORGANIC CHRISTMAS (herbal blend)

 

 

Interesting Highlights:

Organic!!! This is so important now to so many people and I love that this tea has all organic ingredients.

 

Ingredients:

Organic Rooibos,

Organic Cinnamomum Cassia

Organic Orange Peel

 

The Scent or Aroma:

Orange and spice is what this tea reminds me of. The rooibos still stands out with that familiar earthy scent and taste.

 

Review:

Organic Christmas Herbal Blend (notice they did not call it a tea (love)) also got that amazing cinnamon scent and taste yet the Rooibos really makes a stand for itself adding a bit of earthy undertones. There is also a bit of a malty citrus taste with a smooth mellow cinnamon aftertaste. Great tea and not just for holidays!

 

 

Cost: $6.00 / 2 ounces

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.
