Teas are such a wonderful treat at the end of a long day or a nice break from the regular coffee drinks you get all the time. Hubby is actually a larger fan of teas than coffee. They offer so much flavor with every cup. I had the opportunity to try out Tea Sparrow the other day and I have to say they really nailed my taste in teas. We received four varieties of teas from four different companies.
The first bag was from rishi tea and was Earl Grey Supreme. It had all the makings of a traditional Earl Grey with a pleasant hint of citrus fruit in the background. This is a special reserve for Earl Grey lovers from this company. The company infuses a smooth liquoring Keemun and a bold flavored Yunnan with % natural essential oil pressed from real bergamot citrus fruits. We were very pleased with the taste. Hubby and I are not huge Earl Grey fans, but the taste of this particular blend was very nice.
The second bag was my favorite and was from Teaja Organic and was Organic Naked Chai. It is a caffeine free Chai and contains Cardamon and clove, augmented by ginger and cinnamon. It is a very nice seasonal blend and the cinnamon gave it a nice flavor. It was lighter in color than most Chai teas we have tried since we normally drink black Chai teas. We really enjoyed the light taste.
The third bag was from Mighty Leaf tea and was White Orchard Tea. This tea has melon and peach fruits in a pure China white tea. The most prominent flavor for us was the peach. It was a very refreshing tea and I am a huge fruit fan so this tea was great.
The fourth and last bag was from Aromatica and was Vanilla Honeybush. This is a caffeine free tea that had a vanilla caramel flavor. It can be served hot or iced. The Honeybush gives it a very sweet flavor and can be a little overwhelming at times. True to it’s form though it had a nice warming vanilla and honey flavor.
We enjoy trying all different types of teas and I think subscriptions such as Tea Sparrow are a great way to try things you otherwise wouldn’t have purchased. Tea Sparrow will send you a box each month with four loose leaf teas that will be a mix of both herbal and caffeinated blends. You will get 35-40 cups of tea with each monthly subscription. If you are interested you can get this subscription for $20 a month which includes tax and shipping. Here are more options if that is what you are looking for: One time tea box for $25, 3 month subscription for $66, and a six month subscription for $120. Since all of these teas are loose leaf an infuser or strainer is required to enjoy. Tea Sparrow has an awesome January box coming up that they are calling their “New Year’s Resolution Box” and will contain teas that come with healing properties for things such as: weight loss, liver cleansing, antioxidant immunity boosting, and flu-fighting. So make sure you join soon to receive this great box! Overall I found this a great subscription and you get more for your money than other tea subscription services. We were very happy!
