“One batch at a time our teas are hand crafted with care using only the most precious botanicals.” -Steve Schwartz, CEO
For my review I received six different blends to try. One thing I found so unique about the blends is not only are the blends themselves unique, but they LOOK beautiful! I could tell there is a lot of consideration that goes into these blends from the ingredients themselves to the appearance! They truly have some gorgeous blends! I love tea, but true hand crafted blends like this are hard to find – and they far surpass what many think of when they think of “tea.” They truly are unique and offer a unique experience for yours senses – smell, taste, and many offer ingredients that can also positively impact your mood! When I received the Art of Tea blends, I couldn’t decide which one to try first!
I’m glad I received many different blends to try because, with anything, you’re going to have taste preferences. One thing I love about our household is my husband and I in particular have very different tastes, so if there is something I may not quite like, he usually does! So we both tried each blend. Some of the blends really were like nothing I have ever tried. The Garden of Eden, for example, smelled very floral to me, so I didn’t know what to expect! It didn’t taste floral, though. It was a very subtle taste, which I really enjoyed. Some of the other blends had stronger flavors like the Earl Grey Creme, White Coconut Creme, and the Indian Blood Orange. Both my husband and I agree the Earl Grey Creme is our favorite! I also enjoyed the White Coconut Creme whereas he doesn’t enjoy coconut, and he enjoyed the Indian Blood Orange whereas I don’t enjoy orange. So, as I said, it tends to work out nicely that way! He tends to be a little hesitant when trying something new, so I’m glad he did. He actually tried the Indian Blood Orange first and really liked it. It encouraged him to try the other blends!
Each blend had a unique scent and taste. I tend to be a “sweet tooth,” so I add honey to sweeten my tea. Each blend has a suggested steep time, which with the blends I received varied from 3 minutes to 7 minutes. If you aren’t accustomed to using tea blends, you will have to purchase tea bags or filters in which to steep the blends, which I discovered can also be purchased on their website – Tea Bag Filters. I love that their teas are hand crafted, organic, and fair trade. They also offer quite an assortment of great gifts in addition to their tea blends!
