Another great set of teas are in store for you with Tea Gallerie's latest 2 teas that they sent me to review for the Crazy Christmas Giveaway Hop that will start on December 1st and end on the 8th! These will be the 2 tea's that the winner will win along with the other prizes in that package.
This one is called Midnight Vanilla and it is a black tea. If you love Black Tea's like I do and the tasted of Vanilla, then this is gonna be the one for you! I tested this one first last night because I knew it would be awesome and it was.
Nice heavy notes of black tea mingled with vanilla (whole vanilla bean pieces) made this one of my new favorite teas right up there with Earl Grey Creme. So, as you can see, there is a pattern here. I love black teas and green teas the best, then I will drink the others when the mood strikes me. Below is a picture of the Midnight Vanilla and yes, it does look that dark! But it makes a superb yummy drink!
If you need a refreshing hot tea to get you going in the morning or need something to pep you up at night if you need to finish a project, write a paper, study or just want to watch a late night movie, then Midnight Vanilla is what you need to drink. Oh, and also, if can work if you are trying to lose a few pounds because instead of reaching for something fattening, make a cup of this awesome Midnight Vanilla and it will satisfy that sweet urge!
Now, for the Green Tea called China Jasmine! I loved this tea later on in the night as one to just sit back and relax and enjoy the flavor it had to offer. This tea is a special blend of green tea with jasmine flowers. A wonderful sweet jasmine tea with light floral notes. If you love floral tasting teas, then this one will delight you to no end and it's a green tea on top of that!
Why? Well, if we listen to the researchers and doctor's, they say that Green Tea is very healthy for you, so I try to drink at least one cup a day if at all possible. I usually save my green tea's for when I am reading a good book late at night to unwind and will sip on the flavor that hits me on that particular moment. Gosh, if only you could see my cupboard where I keep all my tea's, it would boggle your mind! That's how much I love tea! Below is what China Jasmine looks like.
Quick note: All of these teas are loose leaf, in case I did not mention that in any of my earlier posts. So, you will need whatever method suits you the best as a strainer to hold over your cup to catch the tea but leave the leaves in the strainer. I have this cup below and some similar to it that I used because it is so much easier!
Here is what Tea Gallerie has to say about this Tea Maker:
Our Tea and Coffee Maker is unique and inventive and the hippest gadget in the tea world. This easy to use tea maker offers the simplest solution to making tea. Just add your hot water, loose tea and brew.
When the tea is ready, place the tea maker on top of a cup or mug and the tea will drain, keeping the tea leaves from getting into your cup.
I love mine and use it just about every day and I would suggest that you get either this one or something similar that will trap the leaves and keeps them from getting into your perfectly made tea!
