Fall seems to be making an appearance here in Upstate, NY (trying to at least). So I thought I’d take today to try out a number of teas that have been sent to me to sample and review. The two teas in question are from Revolution Tea. Sonia was good enough to send me a large number of samples and I figured I should start drinking them soon…considering they samples arrived back in July! To say I’ve been busy is putting it mildly.
Anyway, I tried the Golden Chamomile last Sunday morning. That day my little sister got married. I woke up with a pretty nasty sore throat and figured I should see if this mix of chamomile and mint would help me out. I will say that this mix of the two herbs did help my throat out. But the taste wasn’t for me. I think there needed to to be more mint in this blend. Over on Steepster this rated a 46 in my book…which disappoints me as I tend to like a lot of what Revolution Tea has to offer. But I guess I simply can’t like them all. My wallet thanks me for it.
If you’d like to try Golden Chamomile head on over to http://www.revolutiontea.com/herbal-tea/ and try it yourself. Twenty pyramid infusers go for $8.25 a box.
Their Honeybush Caramel I’m trying today. There is a nice light breeze blowing through the house. My husband is in the basement working on who knows what. But I’m keeping an ear out in case a finger goes missing. I brewed up this caffeine free blend to help me relax a little more on this fine afternoon.
Let me tell you this one more than makes up for the herbal tea I mentioned above from last weekend. Everything about this one scream sweet caramel. The dry honeybush, well I wanted to eat it. The liquid here brews up to really pretty amber color. The taste…well, nothing but sweet sweet caramel. I have to say it is very soothing to sip this afternoon. I’m thinking this one mixed with a vanilla black tea of any kind would result in something out of this world…which means I now have a challenge! Do stay tuned!
If you want to try for yourself again head to their website where for $825 you too can pick up 20 pyramid bags.
Many thanks to Sonia again for the samples. I have five samples left to try. So look for at least one of them to hit the blog later this week.
I leave you with a photo…not of tea. I failed at taking photos of either tea. But instead of the dress I wore as a bridesmaid in the wedding (before the straps broke!).
