Of course my readers are well acquainted with my obsession with teapots and all things teapot related.
To use a teapot you need proper tea so today I am going to share a bit of my new loves.
At Christmas I was gifted several new to me types of tea and today I thought I would share a few of the ones that I have tried and loved.
Now anyone who drinks tea knows that not every tea is a favorite. I am not a huge fan of green tea – I have to be in the right mood for it – but I have never found a tea that I absolutely hated. With that being said I have to rave about these 4 teas today. They all hit it out of the park for me.
First up is a wonderful blend called Up North that my good friend Jeni (JeniEats) sent me.
It was such a lovely surprise to find this in my mailbox and even though the description made me think it would just be a mess of pine needles (not really) I was delighted to find that it is a refreshingly minty tea. I love mint and this one is so soothing and comforting it has quickly become my go to evening cuppa. I started following the company Well Rooted on Instagram and love their posts. I would urge any Minnesotans to seek this one out if they have a chance. Lovely and light it suits me.
Next up is a trio of teas that my dear Mr. Diamond gifted me.
I had not heard of the company before (I think he found them on Amazon and I found out they are one of Oprah’s favorites) but when I opened the package it was delightfully presented in a lovely green box. The tea containers contain a generous amount of each tea and the different flavors of chai are surprisingly good.
First up is my favorite of the trio – Ginger Chai. I love ginger and the combo makes a slightly spicy and refreshing brew. The hunks of ginger add texture and body to the blend and I have loved having a cup of this after dinner.
Next in the trio in preference has to be Maharani Oolong. I am a huge oolong fan and this one is just delightful. The spiciness of the chai comes through and it brews up into a delightfully colored tea.
I love finding new teas and have resolved to make it a priority to clean out my tea cupboard which is now spilling over into that cute card catalog I bought this summer. Some of the teas I used to love are not my favorites anymore so I need to share them and reduce my stock. Any takers out there?
