We always used to joke with my sister that she was the one in the family who ‘put the pedal to the metal’ or ‘had a lead foot’ because she enjoyed being the little speed demon on the highway. Sorry “Spud” if you are reading this! HEY! At least it’s not as bad as the time I announced on the radio that you could eat Twizzlers with your feet! Anyhow…that’s my little ‘tea word association’ with the tea of the moment I will be reviewing now Petal to the Metal from Ruby Lion Tea.
Ruby Lion is a newer tea company from what I have seen and their Petal To The Metal is my first taste of their product. Let me tell you it was a good first impression!
The loose leaf mixture was mostly (or completely) tighter winded black tea with hefty rose buds from what I could see. The black tea was of medium strength and had a nice even taste. It really didn’t take you for a wild ride or anything. The rose buds were marvelous! They certainly didn’t skimp on those! They were of top quality and the colors present in the dried petals were beautiful! This all contributed to the aroma and flavor of the mighty flower. It was delightfully floral.
This being my first encounter with Ruby Lion I have to say I’m intrigued and hope I have try more of the teas in the near future. This was a tasty one! I wish the very best as they continue to construct their website and presence in the tea world!
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Black Tea
Where to Buy: Ruby Lion
We’ve all had our fair share of floral, Rose herbal Teas. This time, Rose is taking a back seat as the scent and taste of freshly peeled cardamom pods infuse this Black Tea with a nostalgic, grounding flavor profile.
We’re all complicated people, so we’ve invented a drink for the complex soul.
