About a year ago or so, I took a solid look at my tea stash and realized I had way too many teas that I had been neglecting and cancelled all of my tea subscription plans. I adored the teas I was getting, but decided that I really needed to buckle down and drink what I already had. The only subscription I kept was Sipsby because, well for $15, you can’t really go wrong with their offerings no matter how much tea you have.
Fast forward to the present day and I’m happy to say, I’ve drank down a considerable amount of my tea stash and decided it was time to pick up one tea subscription plan. I have done Plum Deluxe, Blend Bee, 52Teas and a few others in the past, but I wanted to go a different route. Right about that same time when I was trying to see which one I wanted to go with, I received an email from the lovely people at St Fiacres Farm about their new FarmHouse Teas. I checked out the site and remembered that St Fiacres Farm offered a tea subscription plan. Each month you are sent one of their teas (1oz) and a few goodies. So far, I’m super impressed with what I’ve received but this blend I devoured in just a few sittings.
Winder Wonder Berry Tea is a blend of green rooibos (my favorite!), peppermint, spearmint, berries, and a few other inclusions. Besides this tea smelling amazing, the look of this tea is just wonderfully comforting.
I prepared this tea with with fresh boiled water and allowed to steep for 6 minutes, then allowed the tea to cool for about 3 minutes. Took my first sip and was in heaven. Fresh blueberries with mint and a honey background with notes of a sweet tartness probably coming from the vanilla extract and hibiscus. This tea has it all. It is refreshing, crisp, and down right amazing.
Green rooibos teas really don’t get much better than this and this is one tea that I’m going to need to get more of STAT. I can’t wait to try this tea as a cold brew if I can save some for the upcoming summer months.
And what where my treats to go along with this blend? Glad you asked. The most amazing toffee I’ve ever had. Ever heard of cashew almond toffee? Or do I just need to get out more? This treat was simply heaven and one that if I do place a larger order soon to get more of this tea, you bet there will be a few toffees thrown in to go along with my tea!
Here’s the scoop!
