Creme Le Jasmine from BlendBee. . . .

You all know I am a huge fan of Creme Brûlée & Creme Brûlée flavored teas, I’ve talked about them so much! So clearly, this Creme Le Jasmine green tea blend from Blend Bee would be right up my ally. Jasmine is one of those flowers that people usually either love or hate. For me, I generally enjoy it because it tends to relax me. However, it does depend on what it’s mixed with. This specific blend consists of Jasmine Green Tea, Jasmine Flowers, Marshmallow Root, Chamomile, Agrimony Herb, and Custard & Vanilla extracts. Doesn’t it sound delicious?

Well, it sounds delicious AND tastes delicious. The Jasmine Green Tea is actually very light, so if you aren’t always a fan of Jasmine you may still enjoy this. I added a little agave to my cup, but it really wasn’t necessary because the vanilla and custard flavors definitely sweeten it up on their own. Even the marshmallow adds a delicious touch and really helps to resemble that crunchy, burnt sugar signature Creme Brûlée topping! This blend tastes like the inside custard of Creme Brûlée sprinkled with essence of Jasmine! Since it is a Green Tea blend, it’s light enough to enjoy even in the summertime!

Now I wonder how it would taste iced…. Definitely try a cup from Blend Bee today!

Here’s the scoop!

An Apple Cider Green Rooibos Delight from Design A Tea

You know that episode of Friends where Rachel accidentally combines two recipes and makes a trifle with ladyfingers, jam, and beef sautéed with peas and onions? My favorite part comes shortly thereafter when Joey takes a bite and loves it. With his mouth full, he proclaims “Custard: good. Jam: goooood. Meat: good!”

I promise you, this tea tastes nothing like a custard-y jam trifle with a layer of beef and peas. HOWEVER. I was totally inspired by Joey when coming up with my review. Apple cider? Good. Tea? Goood. Green Rooibos? Good!

This one is a delightful apple cider tea– all that you’d expect to be there is present: cinnamon-y spices, apple, light green rooibos notes. There’s not too much unexpected about this tea, but that’s not a bad thing. It’s a solid herbal with great flavors that are exactly what you’d expect from a tea named as such. Or as Joey would say? It’s goooood.

UNITEA from BlendBee. . . A World United In One Cup

BlendBee was a company I discovered this year and every blend just blows me away. The kindness, compassion, amazing quality, freshness of the teas and flavors makes BlendBee a company that really sticks out to me. This is one of those companies that once you discovered them, you just can’t get enough.

UNITEA came in last month’s subscription box from BlendBee. This blend is a mixture of Darjeeling, Honeybush, Yerba Mate, China Green Tea and English Breakfast. The description goes like this:

From South America to South Africa, India to China, with a touch of the Enlglish. Let’s all unite with one exquisite cup of tea. Spread love, joy and harmony. Cheers friends!

And Cheers friends is exactly right!

Right off the bat while this tea is steeping you get that familiar English Breakfast aroma wafting through the air. A smell that I haven’t encountered for some time and its definitely giving me love, joy, and harmony.

The flavors mingle together nicely to provide a wonderful cuppa this morning for sure.  The notes that really stand out are the Darjeeling and English Breakfast ones. I can pick up the Honeybush as well but I’m not really getting the green tea or yerba mate. But that’s ok. I know they are working silently in the background to complete this gorgeous flavor that is really helping my morning along.

Such a wonderfully robust strong tea that really makes you want to drink it all morning long while checking off projects around the house or even at work. At least that’s what I’m doing now. This tea has a lot going on but everything really works well and jives.

This tea by itself is outstanding but I wanted something a bit more (after I had about 4 cups of it) , so I added in a bit of ginger and peppermint and wow, this tea has taken on a life of its own.  Such a well balanced and thought out tea and now it looks like a tea that would be a great one to experiment your blending your own tea blends with.

I’m so happy this one showed up last month. Now I’m wondering what would happen if you threw in a touch of marshmallow root and some orange peel. . . . this could be something fantastic in the making. . .(hint hint BlendBee!!)

If you are looking for that last minute present for that tea drinker on your list, check out BlendBee. I know they will enjoy their blends as much as I do!
