tea review

These are incredibly busy days for me and my family.  Besides a family situations we have going on, my 9-5 job is in the political arena so I’m pretty much working from the minute I wake up until the minute I’m heading to bed with emails still coming in.  I do very much love my job but because of the craziness. . . .my tea drinking has fallen to the way side a bit and I’m missing my tea time so very much.

So after lunch the other day, I made it a priority to enjoy tea time (with snacks even) and grabbed a tea we recently relieved from Joseph’s Tea- Peach & Apricot Green Tea. This particular tea was in a tea bag so I knew that even if I had to quickly start working again, I would be able to easily keep drinking this delight.

Brewed with water at 170F and allowed to steep right around 3 minutes, this tea was a delightful surprise.  Really sweet peachy notes with a subtle smoky flavor.   I don’t get the apricot notes as much as I get the peachy notes, but I’ll be honest, I’m OK with that because of how lovely the peach flavor was.

This tea was really simple yet really lovely tea to enjoy and enjoy I did.  This tea was my companion all afternoon.  I found myself really digging the contrast of the sweet peach notes with the gunpowder green tea.

I did try for a few more resteeps and I was again pleasantly surprised. I can see this tea being a dynamite iced tea and something I will be trying  in the future.

I am a late 30s something mom who loves her family, will be getting married to a wonderful guy and has 4 kids (2 mine-2 his). We have a beautiful life together and I wouldn't change a thing. Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun. I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion. Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.

Why this recipe works with tea: Upping your mixology game with tea is a no-brainer and takes minimal effort. Don’t use tea steeped in water as a mixer for cocktails; you’ll just water down the drink. Instead, throw a couple of tea bags into 4 ounces (1/2 cup) of a room temperature spirit and let it steep for 30 minutes. Remove the tea bags and ...

How To Make Orange Rooibos Pudding

What I love about rooibos is that it has the richness and depth of flavor of black tea but without the astringency or the caffeine. This orange rooibos from Joseph’s Tea is the perfect example of that. It’s smooth and inviting and it has the perfect amount of orange flavor—just enough to tease the senses but not overwhelm the palate...
