In this episode I take a look at two teas from Talbott Teas, a Chicago based tea company, who has brought the elegance of the spa and salon industry into the tea world. First I explore their Blueberry Peach Passion tea, which jelly belly should create a flavor after. Then I take on the Luscious Lemon Meringue, a tea that smells like lemon tart, and tastes like fruit loops – go figure. Cheers.

In this episode I try out a blended green tea called Oasis, made by Tea Forte. Tea Forte is starting to pop up all over in places like Nordstrom, Planet Beauty, Crate & Barrel, and a whole host of popular retail stores. You’ll probably recognize their pyramid infusers and their signature leaf, so I thought I’d give them a shot. They have a great line of tea accessories and a variety of teas to match. We already know their presentation is great, now it’s time to test the tea. Cheers.

In this episode, I take a look at another great tea from Mighty Leaf, their Rainforest Mate. Mate is a very popular South American drink that comes from the Yerba mate plant. It is often a favorite tea of ex-coffee drinkers, as it is the only tea, not coming from the Camellia sinensis plant, that contains caffeine.

In this episode I take a look at the North End Pu-erh from Tranquil Tea Lounge. Pu-erh is a unique tea which is the only kind of tea that undergoes a post-oxidation fermentation process. Because of this, pu-erhs are often stored and aged, and like fine wine, get better (and more expensive) with age.

In this episode, I’ll take a look at a few of the more common ways to brew your loose leaf tea. Visit the Bodum website if you want to find the yo-yo glass and infuser basket set or the teapot shown. Here are the T-Sac tea filters shown. Now start steeping!

In this episode I take a look at the Peach Momotaro from Teavana. This is what’s known as a flowering or blooming tea. It is a hand woven ball of white tea leaves, with a small bouquet of chrisanthemine and jasmine flowers inside. When brewed, the tea ball unfurls and produces a very elegant looking tea pot and a light flavored tea. Obviously this tea is best brewed in a clear tea pot, like the Sorapot, shown in this episode. Let me know if you’ve tried any other blooming teas that you’ve enjoyed. Cheers.
