Tried a sample of this courtesy of Nichole on the first springy afternoon of the season…t-shirts and bare feet were the order of the day Saturday.

The pear was sweet and authentic and not a bit artificial. The rooibos was, well, rooibos-y. But, to my warped flavor interpretation circuits, the flavors never blended. They hit you separately, like oil and water. With that said, it was not a bad tea, drinking it outdoors made it just plain lovely, and your experience may vary.

Courtesy of Nichole, I sampled a cup of this while watching the live action Mulan (which doesn’t top the cartoon). It does not look like its namesake at all, and yes, I Googled for pictures to be sure. Instead, it was what gets called “fancy-pants oolong” at our house: very light gold and satiny. Her review mentioned peaches and rose; I’d go peaches and honeysuckle.

I liked the live action Mulan movie, but yeah it’s very different from the animated one. I like both though! :P

The live action one was very pretty to watch. Beautiful costumes and cinematography.

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #52 overall / Tea #19 for February

Sunday 2/14 — Another cold-brew pitcher, this one was one of the 4 teas in my January Amoda subscription box. This one is simply Pai Mu Tan white tea, peppermint, chamomile, rose petals, lavender. Most of the ingredients I’m not fond of (well mainly the chamomile and rose petals)..I wouldn’t be purchasing this tea again but it was a pleasant refreshing floral/herbal blend during the chaos that was a weekend at work. :)

I really enjoy this tea. It’s a great morning drink. There is an earthy/nuttiness with the black tea. The peppercorns add a zesty pop and the allspice brings almost a clove flavor. It all works really well together and it’s great pick me up.

It’s sure to put your morning power level over 9000.

I will be 100% transparent. . . I bought this tea for the name (yes, I’m that mature). Brewed up a huge serving of this one to enjoy while working and wow, so good. This tea tastes delicate (if that makes sense). All of the flavors are light but 100% there. I’m picking up sweet honey and floral notes like rose. Also picking up hints of peach. As the tea cools, the floral notes intensify, which I’m happy about. This might be a tea to enjoy over the holidays with the fancy desserts I ordered.

Flavors: Honey, Peach, Rose

Ooh fancy desserts?! Do tell!

I’ve never had macarons before so we have a bunch of those coming, a Milky Way cheesecake (yes, the candy bar)and about four different kinds of gourmet cupcakes. I’m toooo excited! Typically our desserts are all homemade. I plan on having an afternoon tea party on Christmas since we all have to healthy quarantine from each other in our house and figured we needed to splurge a bit.

I am a sucker for quirky names, too; I believe this tops ’em all! I am not an aficionado of poultry droppings, although my mom used to tell a whopper of a chicken story (another time, maybe) … but is there a similarity in shape?

(Nope, just checked the website picture. That isn’t it!) Just…why? :)

My monthly sub showed up today and this delight was among the three for this month. I was super excited to try this blend since I’ve been eyeing it on her site. And while I am really enjoying this blend, I’m getting no maple notes at all. What I am getting is this really nice and warming roasted seaweed note. Which takes you by surprise when you are expecting maple. Not a reorder, but a nice cup to enjoy on this cold eve.

Flavors: Roasted, Seaweed

This is a favorite in our household. It has a nice earthy taste along with a maple flavor accompanied by hints cocoa. It’s a Hojicha, which means the green tea is roasted. The earthiness/nuttiness of the roasted leaves matches great with the slight sweetness. It’s very delicious and flavorful without being overwhelming.

I definitely recommend this one.
