Three new teas to try
Yesterday I found a new variety of Lipton tea and had to get a box to try. It's Blueberry Pomegranate Energize Iced Tea Mix To Go. Have you ever noticed certain flavors seem to be in vogue at times? Pomegranate seems to be the celebrity flavor these days, and I happen to like it. Well, this tea was pleasant tasting, but only in a generic-berry-flavor kind of way. Didn't taste the pomegranate, didn't feel "energized" by the caffeine. This was fine, but I probably won't buy it again.
On the hot tea front, what I've been drinking at the office this week is Davidson's French Vanilla Tea with Honey, which I was surprised to find at T.J. Maxx. I love the flavor of vanilla, and this tea's addition of a honey flavor made this a particularly enjoyable, smooth blend.
The other new tea I've tried is Davidson's Bing Cherry with Almond, also flavored with honey, which is just as delicious as the French Vanilla. I've enjoyed Davidson's teas ever since a friend introduced me to their "dessert teas" some years ago. And since I haven't asked in a while ... have YOU tried a new tea lately that you'd be willing to share with us?
