Where To Buy: Compass Teas
This elegant citrus and spice black tea blend will have you imagining cozy, snowy nights cuddling up to the fire, and days that you can actually relax. Brew yourself a cup and enjoy the comforting scents of citrus, cloves, and cardamom.
Fireside Blend from Compass Teas is Intensely flavored! It reminds me of walking into a Folk-Artsy-type/Home Decor type store with woodsy, cinnamony, old-time-country flowers, spices from wall-to-wall, or a festive/Holiday Booth at a craft fair…I think you got the picture I was trying to make for you!
It infuses fast and dark. The woodsy, cinnamon, floral smells are more in front after infusion.
The Black Tea is the more intense flavor when tasting which I LOVE. I’m so happy this is flavored the way it is and not overly so.
This is quite delicious. I wouldn’t normally be attracted to a tea like this but am so glad I gave it a whirl. Just goes to show you you should judge a tea based on what you THINK it’s going o be like! Everyone once and a while you get one that surprises you! This is just another tasty offering from Compass!
Where To Buy: Two Leaves And A Bud
A traditional chai that starts with true Assam tea (not cheap “blending tea”) and adds only the true ingredients of chai: Cinnamon, Clove, and Cardamom. Fabulous with milk and honey!
I waited a while to try this one. Not sure why. Maybe because I have been tasting a lot of Chai lately. Many of them seem to be over-spiced and/or all seemed the same. After my first sip of this I knew it was different. The flavors were wonderful and I could have sworn I tasted a lovely orange flavor to it eventho it doesn’t mention citrus in the product description but I could have sworn it was there! The spices are just right for my palate and there was a bit of juicy-sweet with the spices tossed in.
In short…I really like this! The Chai flavors are subtle and the orange is just 1 step ahead of the spices! This was very nice!
